i should take a class

today at work, i asked my two coworkers what a good workout would be that fit the following conditions:

  • no waking up early to run or running at lunch or running after work when it’s really dark and scary in the neighborhood
  • no joining a gym or incurring any additional or lasting expense
  • fun
  • no being in a group of people or really out in public in any way
  • no dvds or anything i have to do in front of the tv – there is no space.

and what did they come up with?  jumping rope!  hell yeah, dudes.  i mean, i was a champion rope jumper at portsmouth catholic elementary, though i suspect that might just be because i could count higher than most of the other first graders.  anyway, it’s perfect because i can do it at home under the car port, i don’t totally hate it and a pretty nice jump rope was less than 10 bucks and it came with an “upbeat audio workout.”  oh also, i know i said i didn’t want to be in a group, but seriously ladies, if we work really hard, we can pull off awesome stunts and awkward video edits like these:

i think we should incorporate this into our stitch and bitch on thursdays.

    i hate jump rope, it’s a really hard work out!
    but, since you were a pro back in the day, maybe I can be persuaded!

    i don’t know … i like to bounce, so i think it’s a good match. though maybe what i should do is just get a moon bounce and install it in the driveway.

    I don’t know man. I tried to jump rope to train once. That business is rough on the joints.

    What a great idea! Your coworkers are incredibly helpful. Ask them to figure out a workout for someone like me that includes all of those things and GiANT boobs. I think we should have to take turns on the Elliptical at stitch and bitch, maybe that would clear some of the dust off of it.
