My spreadsheet workout tracker says that July 13 was the last time I Q’d, and that was just writing down a workout I yoinked from F3 Cherokee. To keep things active at Newtown I posted on Slack that I would be there and Q the workout. Then I realized I forgot pretty much everything about Qing. After some poking through backblasts, a vague plan came together.
Zohan posted that he would join me. I hoped for a Morphine or Feathers sighting, but as Zohan pulled up at 0529 it was just me and him.
Mosey past the baseball field. Hang a left down the hill. Stop in a seemingly random place. Zohan: “Why are we stopping here?” Pointed out the pull-up bars, to his disappointment. But first, the warm-up:
High knees for a while
Weedpicker x 12
Imperial Walker x 12
Copperhead Squat x12
Circuit at the pull-up bars: 5 pull-ups, 10 gas pumpers, 15 squats. 3 rounds
Mosey along the path to the T intersection. We traversed the hill toward the start with a repeating sequence of 5 broad jumps and 5 walking lunges (AC). With the soccer field in sight we moseyed on to the field and to the baseline.
Escalating sequence, starting with 5 burpees, 5 mercans, 5 BBSU, 5 squats. Run to the end of the field and back, then 10, 15, 20. Got called out for my squat form. Need to find a darker spot next time.
Head to the lacrosse parking lot. These endless parking lots will be great for some killer routines. Today it was an Apple Turnover. Bear Crawl 3 spaces, Crab Walk 3 spaces, rinse and repeat until we got to the tennis courts. Bernie Sanders back
Head to the pavilion for a quick set of 20 dips and 20 derkins. Then a sad attempt at a Doomsday Clock (our total shall not be shared), and a few rounds of Mary. With time running out YHC called for a 10 burpee cashout. Fin

Prayers for work situations
This is a great location. Headlamps may be a regular requirement for any BDs using the back half of the trail.
Thanks Zohan for showing up to push me. Enjoyed the fellowship
