Well, they finally did it…..they convinced me to Q! For the first time in almost a year, and the first time since moving from FiA Lexington to FiA Cherokee, I did it! And boy was it COOOOOOOOOLD!  28 degrees at the start! That’s OK though, because we warmed up fast with jumping jacks, through-the-tunnels and front/side kicks (IC).


We celebrated the cold temps with a little mountain climbing, from 10 to 100:

10 Burpees

20 Deadlifts

30 BGSs

40 Bicep Curls

50 Imperial Walkers

60 Mountain Climbers

70 Flutterkicks

80 Penguins

90-Second High Plank

100 Buttkickers

So what do you do when you get to the top of a mountain? You run a victory lap of course!  We ran our lap then we started on down the mountain:

100 High Knees

90 Hallelujahs

80 LBCs

70 Squats

60 Russian Twists

50 Calf Raises

40 Tricep Dips

30 Merkins

20 Shoulder Taps

10 Monkey Humpers


We had some time after we reached the bottom of the mountain so we finished up with our new favorite leg warm-up/cool-down (15 Leg Extensions 15 Pulses, 15 Fire Hydrants 15 Pulses, 15 Rainbows each leg), and then we each called out a favorite(??) ab exercise of which we did 50.  After a little stretching we finished with COT and Name-O-Rama, then ran to our cars to get home to a warm blanket, bath and beverage! And hey, by then we had finally hit 32 degrees!

Thanks ladies for coming out in the cold for my first Chero-Q!
