I am convinced that either the evil one whispers lies into my ear the night before I Q or my own sin (pride and fear of man) eats me alive. Why? I normally sleep very well (7 solid hours), my son normally sleeps very well (12 solid hours) and I don’t have a problem shutting off my brain. However, the night before I Q, I cannot fall asleep, then when I do, I am up every couple of hours, I have dreams about screwing up the workout, my son randomly wakes up screaming and I constantly question whether I have what it takes (physically and mentally) to lead a group of men in a workout. This week was no different. Regardless, I have NEVER regretted Q-ing. The lack of sleep and the mental battle that wages the night before is worth the rewards that result from leading a group of men on a windy Monday morning in December.

Moleskin: Great effort by all of the PAX. We completed 110 Burpees and 220 Lunges per leg. It was great to see Gopher back at Agoge. He has been working out with the Chapel HIll crew and as mentioned before, he went off and got strong! It was also good to see SIngle-wide from Raleigh. Thanks for helping tighten up the group during the second set of Modified Jack Webbs. Strong performance from Scrolls on the wall today. It’s time for you to Q.
