There’s Still Time

Posted on

61 minute Qs can sometime seem like an eternity! Coming up with exercises after exhausting your plan and working for 45 minutes is a real challenge! Fortunately, I mentioned wanting to finish with some stairs and that the group of runners present would make that a real possibility. The possibility became reality. Warm up Arm […]

Uncle Mot’s Gifts to UNC

Being a Q is an awesome experience.  It’s fun to plan and piece together your workout like a puzzle. And on your scheduled day to lead, it’s very exhilarating to share what you created with the rest of the PAX.  I always enjoy the exercise portion of a workout, but it’s also very cool to […]

Experimental Design

Posted on

YHC has had a bee in his bonnet to try and come up with some new and interesting workouts when Q’ing. So, today became a day to test some experimental designs. Shout out to the PAX who patiently put up with a few workouts that didn’t really “work out”, and had great suggestions for improving […]

Defying Dr. Royal Burpee

Posted on

Dr. Royal Burpee developed a set of movements in 1939 to measure the average person’s fitness level. At that point in time, fitness tests were apparently gear towards people who were already physically fit. His set of movement which became known as the burpee was supposed to test an average person’s level of fitness. He was […]

A Burpee Mile

YHC was given himself positive encouragement to continue with the plan despite standing alone at 5:28. I convinced myself I would go regardless the pax count, but I was relieved to see two coming in hot. I find I push myself more in a group than I would on my own. Warm up Downward dog, […]

Manning Up at Westend

We may have a new record for backing out of a Q. Last night a pax made a public announcement on slack he would take this morn’s open Q, then apparently rescinded his offer within 2 hours. Must have been direct communication as I did not see the public pronouncement on slack. What’s awesome about […]

Just kinda all over the place

Posted on

YHC had only discovered the greatness of West End recently, but has enjoyed it so much that he figured he might as well Q it. Assembling in the gloom, 10 PAX treated themselves to the following kind of all over the place routine: Warmup: SSH (20), Imperial Walkers (10), Willy Mays Hays (10), Windmills (10), […]

Run, Lift, Run

It’s Friday, and the weekend is within striking distance.  One last day to give it all you’ve got, which is exactly what nine PAX did at the West End.  This was YHC’s first visit to the site (as both a PAX member and Q). It did not disappoint.  The layout of the town provides numerous […]
