As your Q drove to the workout, he was envisioning something outdoors and under the stars. But as he entered the parking lot he was shocked to see all the lights on under the shelter. That – plus the 30-something degree weather – made him opt for the shelter instead. Probably wouldn’t be anything worth seeing in the early morning sky anyways.

This workout was recycled from my Q a few months ago – I don’t remember much about it other than it was pouring down rain that morning. Each round consists of four 45-second intervals – first two are lifts, third interval is a static exercise where you hold the weight steady, and the last interval is 45-seconds recovery. Then REPEATO all four before moving to the next round. Everything went off well, aside from some PAX grumbling about how much worse we all look under the halogen lamps.

Coffee hour was another good one – at least after @DickTracy mean-mugged the Burn ladies into giving up their tables.  Ramblings overheard at RRC – Mortal Kombat (the 2021 movie release) has several PAX geeking out like it’s sixth grade… a few of us have turned the table spin and slide together process into an art form, to the point @Birdcage watched us work and briefly thought he was in the movie Inception… sad news on the death of Shock-G, gone after @Pancake had only just become aware of his existence, RIP Legend… RBLX, COIN, DOGE, ABML – your local Wall Street experts continue their meteoric ride to fame and fortune, all profits, no muck-ups.

And speaking of meteoric rises, we were the only AO completely oblivious to this morning’s rocket launch. Possibly the most amazingly-visible launch event in history, and we were all stuck under that shelter with gobs of fluorescent light and a @DT’s Green Day playlist polluting our senses. Your Q has to accept an L on that decision, won’t happen again.

Thanks to those who were there and made it a fun morning nonetheless.
