With no designated Q on the schedule, YHC volunteered to fill in with a seat-of-the-pants Q.  The theme of the day: a Tour de Stairs of the Southbank’s multi-story structures, similar to a workout led by Big Bird a few months ago.

Warmup: Butt kicks, high knees, karaoke left/right, and lunges around the fountain

The Thang:

  • Run from Friendship Fountain along riverwalk to DoubleTree hotel
  • 5 rounds – sprint up and down both sets of stairs from riverwalk to pool deck + 5 burpees
  • Run to the Stein
  • 2 rounds – up and down stairwell (6 floors) + 30 flutter kicks at bottom
  • Run to Baptist ER parking garage
  • 2 rounds – up and down stairwell (6 floors) + 10 Groiners at bottom
  • Run east on Prudential Dr. to Kings Ave, U-turn, right on Riverplace Blvd to return to FF
  • Stop at pocket park for 25 Derkins OYO
  • Return to FF

Total (horizontal) distance per Garmin: 3.2 miles

Prayer requests:

  • PUD’s assistant going in for cancer testing
