7/11/19 ToG Preblast-If you’ve never skipped a CI Q, here’s your chance #getrested

Been a while since I Q’d. I’m going to give some thought to what to do, but no promises that it will be good, original or even interesting. It’ll just be good to be there, or not if you’re tired. Here’s a picture I found in my photos that I like.

5/23 Backblast – Modified Dora at the Temple of Gloom

It’s been awhile since I’ve taken the reins on a Q. I forgot how horribly I sleep the night before … I’m currently on coffee number 3 (or maybe 4) as I write this. As I was thinking about what the workout would look like, I knew I wanted to keep it simple, but challenging. […]

Temple of Gloom Pre-blast 11/29 – Running is a Life Skill, Part 2

First, we will not do 100 burpees, run a mile, 50 burpees run a mile for time. Unless someone else chooses to do it, I won’t run that until sometime in March 2019. It seems like a lot you are twitchy about this one since I’ve scaled back my Qs and I’m apparently not creative […]

Pre-Blast – The ‘O’ – 9/13/18 ToG

I’m an engineer, not a marketing director.  I don’t like writing Pre-blasts or other blasts for that matter.  However, I do enjoy reading the clever ones (like Methane’s generic cookie comparison), but this isn’t one of them.  I’m a meat and potatoes with butter and salt kind of guy. No frills, no pepper, just salt […]
