On Tuesdays, I drive across the city for my workout.
I started doing this because working out with friends makes the torture a little less torturous.
And because I needed one more good, hard, structured workout in my week, to go with the runnning and the trapeze.
It's a circus-oriented conditioning class. Some acro, lots of core work, lots of functional strength and body weight exercise.
It kicks my butt. Sometimes literally.
But there's always a lot of laughter, and naming of exercises (benches of death, captain morgans).
The participants change a bit from week to week -- never more than 5 of us, so we get focused attention.
And awesome assisted stretching at the end.
I leave feeling like I could do it all over again,
Thankful for the company, the conditioning, and the endorphins.
