Like Blockwork

Posted on

It had been months since YHC had been to the Bullpen, which made it especially good to be back out with the PAX of downtown Durham. In thinking about a theme for the Q, YHC centered on the user of cinder blocks. Most of us have experienced cinder blocks as notoriously effective in delivering a […]

Leg Day in North Durham

Posted on

Perfect weather today in the Gloom – dry, clear, and just cold enough so you’re not sweating when you step out of the car (but not cold enough to have to layer up). Once you get moving, you forget about it all together. 10 PAX at Hurricanrana for some sprinting, some leg work, and a […]

Back and Forth

Posted on

YHC was excited to Q his old Tuesday regular AO. Was struggling for a little bit of inspiration…and couldn’t get the idea of “back and forth” out of his mind…and got some encouragement to use animal movements by one of his daughters…Given it was 10/29, we were going to wok that into things as well. […]

A Bunch of Pre-Bull

YHC is more of a South Durham/Chapel Hill resident, and so had never made the trip up North to the rally around the flag pole at City Hall and #honeybadger. Site Q Knope had been encouraging YHC to post there for some time, and so YHC finally set aside a date to check it out. […]

Endure Piranha Birthday Month 2019

Posted on

After having signed up for a “birthday Q”, YHC was flattered by the large turnout and many birthday well-wishes. Perhaps disappointing to the many Carpex guys who traveled all the way for my birthday Q (I’m sure), it’s actually the Piranha’s birthday (1 year old) and, still worth celebrating, my 2-year mark joining F3. Speaking […]

Taking it to 100

Posted on

In September, YHC participated in the IronPAX challenge. Part of what he enjoyed about the Challenge workouts was that they allowed basically any fitness level to push it to failure. YHC wasn’t going to try to replicate an entire IronPAX workout, but he at least tried to incorporate a couple IronPAX-like elements into the workout […]
