Putting the “Q” back in Qing

Posted on

“Who wants the Q tomorrow?” I read those words on Slack and debated the pros and cons for a moment. It will be cold. Perhaps starting the week off with more sleep is better. Maybe another day of rest for the body to recover is wise. Then another voice started getting louder. “This will be perfect […]

No Hammy Workout Pre-blast

Posted on

YHC has been lazy recently with the BB, so naturally, it called for a first- a pre-blast! So here it is. YHC has the Q for The Rock on November 12th. I’m not a professional and have a pulled hamstring so I guaranteed no sprints and lots of upper body workouts. It’s going to be […]

The Horror…The Forking Horror

YHC had a bit of an eventful weekend. Last Friday night, I had the opportunity to participate in a GrowRuck Challenge. So, what exactly is this? Well, dear reader, I am glad you asked. GoRuck, the company that sponsors these events, describes a Challenge as a “12-13 hour adventure…inspired by the most elite training offered to […]

Ode to the Rock

YHC took the challenge to look at the Q sheets when Toast posted about openings throughout Hillsborough and juggling the M’s schedule starting a new job signed up for the ones I could lead (lots more options out there for anyone who is looking to Q). Then casually at Duck and Weave on Friday Buffay […]

Birthday Party

10/8 is my birthday.  What better way to start the day of than at The Rock!  Tried to channel the birthday theme with games, singing “Happy Birthday” and cold beverage finale. Warm-up: Mosey to traffic circle – Windmill IC x 10 WMH IC x 10 LBAC IC x 10 (forward) x 10 (reverse) SSH IC […]

Back to basics

Introduction Pusher offered a co-Q opportunity Sunday evening and YHC gladly took the challenge. I was equally excited and nervous for my first VQ/Co-Q. I had a couple ideas written down in case I had to come up with a workout on short notice so I felt like I was somewhat prepared. I wanted to […]

Crushing Cinders

Like many of you (I’m sure), by Day 2 of being cooped up at home my family was getting stir crazy and had to get out of the house – wind and rain be damned!   So with rain boots and jackets on, YHC and his 2.0s headed for the small creek in the woods […]

What the heck is a cheeseworm?

A late Sunday evening beer led YHC to sign up to Q in the gloom on Monday morning at #therock.  Waking up on Monday morning YHC realized he had no plan and needed something quick.  So after thinking a few minutes he promptly fell back asleep and woke up to realize he needed to get […]

It only takes two

Posted on

YHC committed to the Q knowing that many of my Hillsborough brothers would be out of town but if #therock was going to happen someone needed to step up. Things changed at my house quickly thereafter with my M needing to leave for a trip to AZ to be a caregiver to her grandma. Plans […]

Coupon Monday!

Posted on

YHC was inspired by Beano’s Rock Q 2 weeks ago with his treasure chest of coupons.  Sunday night, YHC texted Offshore as he understood Offshore possessed an equally elaborate array of workout gear. Monday morning arrived, YHC hopped in Offshore’s transportation with a small gym inside and navigated to The Rock. WARM-UP: 5:30 arrived and […]
