A Guilty Secret

When people tell me they find exercise boring, I can’t help wondering if they’ve ever actually done anything worthy of being called exercise.

So I was in the navy for a while before doing my engineering degree. (Hello Old Tumblr, I am of your people)

I have carried (simulated) bodies through (real) fire, breathing through an air mask, to make sure I could do it if one of my fellow responders got knocked out during an incident.

I have run until I vomited from exertion.

Exercise is boring as fuck.

EDIT: The firefighting course was #amazing but that’s not exactly the same as having a go at the bars down in the local fitness center.
