@channel I’ve returned from a terribly grueling week in Long Beach, and have the Q tomorrow at The Stairs. This will be a remiX of my last Q at Belknap Park/Lookout, so plan for that short 1/2-mile mosey after we take 2 steps forward and 1 step back (up The Stairs). No coupons required. HC’s, please and thank you.

Disclaimer (given under the overhang at the library across the street from the track, due to rain): This is a free, volunteer, peer-led workout. I am not a professional. I have no knowledge of any injuries or fitness considerations. It is each person’s responsibility to be safe and modify exercises if you need to. The most important thing is that you don’t get hurt, and that you finish. Remember, the workout should be you vs you.

  • I hogged the word of the day, and shared the update about my back, MRI results, and that I’m going to have to modify to a large degree if I want to preserve my participation in F3. Bummer, sucks, but we need to listen to and take care of our bodies.
