Katie and I have squandered the first week of our two week membership to the Circuit Gym. We go today after work to see what I can do if I don’t play racquetball immediately prior. I am definitely better, but it’s still one of the hardest things I’ve ever physically done. The upper body strength necessary to maneuver is admittedly much more than I currently possess.
That said, it is still crazy fun. When you do get to the top and make it all the way over, you definitely get a feeling of instant gratification. I made it over this wall. I pushed myself higher (literally, get it?) I landed on my feet and I am still in one piece. I am tired and drained and my arms feel like they might fall off, and my fingers feel like they are dragging on the ground behind me, and I’m scared because I could’ve fallen. But I didn’t. And it’s awesome.
Afterward, we rewarded ourselves for a job well done with some Vietnamese food and cocktails at Luc Lac. I love working hard!
