The opportunity for YHC to Q 90-minute Whiplash first came up a couple months ago, and as the saying goes, it seemed like a good idea at the time.  What better way to wrap up a milestone birthday week?  And, appropriately enough, on April Fool’s Day.  As the day got closer though, anxiety continued to grow, as expected.  But, I was confident that the grounds of the NC Museum or Art would provide plenty of options to fill a workout, regardless of how many were in attendance.  Lucky PAX of 13 gathered for the celebration.  Here’s what we did:

Warm up 1

Mosey back to main parking lot.  Bear crawl first half of the lot, duck walk the second half, stopping at each median for 4-count Mountain Climbers.  Carioca back to start.
