On this beautiful crisp Tuesday morning, YHC got to GDS around 5:15 to scope out the track, and ran a few laps to warm up. Then out of the gloom pax rolled in, and a fun but brief chitchat ensued, particularly on how the Q was so well-prepared for the upcoming adventure. He gave a


Slamming Ironpax Challenge

Lately I have been talking with Short Circuit on the topic of challenge. Over the last couple months I have been coming to workout, but not sure if I was challenging myself. I have focused on creating good habits such as waking up early, but sometimes I go on cruise control, living solely out of

YHC is still recovering from Monday beatdown by Gunny. Everyone at Quaker Crater agreed it was terrible, just terrible. Wanted to fartsack on Tuesday, only to remember that I had signed up to Q Shakeweight. Hey but the good thing is that I get to pick the exercises.

I was really impressed by Thurmnator's Quaker Crater Q early this week, kept us moving and before you know it 45min is over. So I try to recreate that same experience here in Sweat Angel. Went to home depot and bought 6 20lb pavers for $20, which btw is well worth the money. July 11

PAX this morning had many injuries: Cottontail's back, Short Circuit's knee, Pitino's back, Misfire's shoulder. Then YHC the Q hurt his own neck 1 minute into the workout! Maybe shouldn't have skipped those Sun Gods and not start wo with burpees. EPA said his neck was hurt during the pullups, and Pitino had a new

Awesome morning

Its interesting that after dozens of Q'ing YHC still don't sleep well the night before. Had a crazy dream that I went to the wrong site. Or I came in the wrong time. Thankful for the opportunity to lead, it shows I'm being stretched beyond my comfort zone. Got to AO 5:15, and surveyed the


HITTING the Curb again at Sweat Angel

By now YHC is quite bored with his own inventions. There's got to be other ways to motivate/trick the pax to give their all in a 45-min period. Maybe I need more variety of exercises, or a different pace, or... It was decided the best way to get better was to look at what other


No excuses, not even rain

Weather: 40C, misty rain, wet from raining all last night. Its days like this that makes me want to stay in my warm bed and call it a fartsack. But this morning I have Q and I know PAX are counting on me to lead. Soon as YHC arrived at the covered walkway of Oak
