It’s Raining Outside…Where is the Q?

by | Oct 17, 2017 | Back Blasts

QIC: no-see-um, no-ski, down-under, bartman
PAX POSTED: no-see-um, no-ski, down-under, bartman

Our scheduled Q must have had one of the following happen to him this AM (we will let him choose one):

  1. Alarm Malfunction
  2. Car Trouble
  3. Forgot one of the core principles of F3: workouts are held outdoors, rain or shine, heat or cold…

4 PAX posted in a rainy and wet Lutz, Florida this AM. Occasional lightning in the sky, but no thunder near the AO. Temp was in the low 70’s. YHC and the other 3 PAX decided to make the best of the situation and cooped the beatdown. We have done enough of them to come up with quick pain deliveries as we got through it.

It rained hard at the beginning as we arrived, but the Sky Q gave us a break during the beatdown and the rain pretty much stopped until we wrapped things up.

Flag was planted and the men went to work…
