My thighs are burning. My butt hurts and I'm a little wobbly. Who knew a bouncy house would be such a workout? After just five minutes, your heart races, your legs become jelly and you're out of breath like you just sprinted four miles.
How do little kids bounce all day long?
Yesterday's bouncy house led to much discussion around workouts. I hike in the hills around my house. N runs. Other friends do yoga. And then M mentioned The Bar Method.
"The what?" I asked.
"The Bar Method. You use a ballet bar to stretch and do all kinds of pilate like moves," she replied.
"Uh, I can't even touch my toes. I could never do that," I said.
"If I can do it, you can do it. There are only a couple girls in the class who can actually get their feet over their heads."
I imagined a room full of ultra limber toothpick skinny women twisted up like pretzels.
"Um, yeah, I could never do that."
"No really, you should come with me."
I don't know if it was the bouncy house burn, the margaritas or my cotton candy buzz, but I think I kind of agreed to go to some class where someone will force me to tuck in my butt cheeks, lunge and twist at the same time.
What kinds of workouts do you do? And are they as crazy as that?
