This is my fourth attempt at Qing The Trudge. My first attempt in March 2020 was derailed by F3 Raleigh’s COVID shutdown. My second attempt in October 2020 was derailed by a Healing Transitions COVID lockdown. For my third attempt in March 2021, I bowed out for Cephas to celebrate a birthday Q. Finally!

World’s Greatest Stretch
1) Elevens (11s) in the main parking lot: WW1s and Burpees. We finished up in time to avoid the trash truck’s arrival and moseyed to the rock pile. Well most of us did, we lost Yukon for a bit. Real Cobains. *grit teeth emoji*
2) Grab a rock and partner up at the fuel tank loop. One partner runs a lap while other partner does AMRAP rock exercise. Flapjack. Repeato with a new exercise. Exercises were: Curls, Overhead Press, Triceps Extensions, Bent Over Rows, Flutter Kicks, American Hammers, Elevated Homer to Marge, Rock Taps (Nipplers but tap the rock), Chest Press, Skull Crushers
Freddy Mercury IC x20, Box Cutters IC x10, Box Cutters Reverse IC x10, Homer to Marge IC x20

Hoffa took us out
This was my first post at The Trudge. I had only attended The Arena previously. The AO is a lot smaller in the dark! I started with the elevens hoping the earlier sunrises this time of year might open up some other options.
I still feel bad about losing Yukon. It really looked like everyone was done when the truck showed up.
Hoffa’s modification to do regular nipplers while propping yourself on the rock sounds promising. Dow immediately suggested him and our next Q haha. (Q Sheet is pretty full at the moment, for what it’s worth).
Dang, that trash truck stank up the place. Maybe we should shift to a 0515 start? Haha.
Great work by FNG One Man Band. Instruments included guitar, bass, maybe drums? He likes to play Hendrix and the Beatles. Hello, Summer of Love! Hope he can make it back out again.
This was my forty-first #F3Q21 #2021Challenge Q. Next Q is Wednesday (tomorrow) at Quarantine in NE Wake.
PAX: Boitano, Dow, Hermit, Hoffa, Lance, Mister Kaplan, Mortimer, One Man Band (FNG), Pigpen, Price Is Right, Summer of Love, Yukon Cornelius
