There was no point in switching up the regular routine at True Grit in YHC’s Maiden Q.  The name of the workout speaks for itself -simple, raw, tough, and enduring.  Running, Body weight repetitions, and active recovery -no bells, no whistles.  YHC set a swift pace for the PAX who stuck right with me.
