    • Stop at light posts to do 2 workouts at each post:
      • 10 merkins IC, 20 LBCs IC, 10 wide grip merkins IC, 20 flutter kicks IC, 20 LBCs IC, 20 hello dollies, 10 heels to heaven OYO and a sprint
    • Turf field 7 of diamonds
      • 4 rounds of 7 burpees OYO in each corner
      • 4 rounds of 14 merkins IC in each corner
      • 4 rounds of 21 flutter kicks IC in each corner
      • 4 rounds of 28 squats OYO in each corner

There’s been a lot of discussion about the same handful or so of people Qing a lot and how do we expand to ensure this group sustains itself.  I think it’s 3-fold: #1 step-up, get out of your comfort zone and volunteer and lean on your PAX for support and constructive criticism.  #2-Steal with pride.  If you haven’t Qed or don’t Q often.  Go read backblasts of the workouts you liked in the past or just go from memory and steal others’ ideas.  Some of the best workouts are the most simple.  #3-listen to the constructive criticism, don’t take it personally, adapt and sign up again
