This week, several things related to my workouts really made me smile. First, my husband and I were flipping through the guide on our TV - and saw that the show "I Shouldn't Be Alive" was about mountain climbing. We laughed and decided to watch it. It started with "This is a true story that occurred in Washington State." I looked at Mark and bet him it was about Rainier. He didn't take the bet, damn.

The views are worth the risk of death, right? LOL
|I think I need a safe word Mommy.|
Level 1: I'm watching TV and eating bon bons
Level 2: I'm comfortable and could maintain this pace all day long
Level 3: I'm still comfortable, but am breathing a bit harder
Level 4: I'm sweating a little, but feel good and can carry a conversation effortlessly.
Level 5: I'm just above comfortable, am sweating more and can still talk easily.
Level 6: I can still talk, but am slightly breathless
Level 7: I can still talk, but I don't really want to. I'm sweating like a pig.
Level 8: I can grunt in response to your questions and can only keep this pace for a short time period.
Level 9: I am probably going to die
Level 10: I am dead.
Maybe I just like his descriptions better than then the original ones?
One last thing - I REALLY need to change the name of my blog. It's fairly cliche and overdone...and doesn't really fit anymore....even if I am still practically big enough to be two people. Any ideas? I'll have to come up with some kind of prize package for anyone that submits an idea that I actually use.
What quirky workout related things make you smile?
Would you still climb the mountain after seeing that episode?
