Disclaimer: 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.          

Having found some free-time on Wednesday morning, YHC HC’d for the Forrest OTB workout. Then, as I woke up on Wednesday morning, I thought to myself – Forrest is going to kill my today…perhaps, he’ll let me take the Q. After receiving confirmation from Forrest via text at 0500, I was FREED TO LEAD.
