This week I focus on being able to climb a rope. I'm going to go out on a limb and say it's better than climbing the corporate ladder but not as fun as climbing on your man...even though I don't actually have a man. Maybe I should have made all of these things gender neutral. Or, maybe I should include two of every example so that everyone can be a part of the fun.
Let's see..."lot of things you can climb..." blah blah blah...Ah. You can climb the corporate ladder (not fun unless you like getting groped by the boss whenever no one is looking). You can climb Mount Everest (also not fun unless you like having your junk frozen shut like Wal-Mart clams). You can climb on top of your woman (which should be fun unless she was working in a fish hatchery located in a paper mill, in which case you should let her shower first).You can climb your way out of a financial hole (always good, but please learn your lesson and stop spending your money on expensive bourbon and dominatrix outfits).
That's better. Where was I? Oh, right. Climbing. Why do I want to climb a rope? Because it's part of the Tough Mudder training.
Obstacle 15: The Rope-A-Dope - A 15' free climb up a rope, just like in gym class!
So, I'm going to hang a rope in a tree in the back yard and start working my way up. You guys are going to love watching this. Close your eyes and try to imagine a 260 lb man trying to shimmy 15' up a rope. I promise to record a few attempts and I'll add some yackety sax to make it extra funny. Oh, how you guys are going to laugh and laugh. Pointing and laughing. Giggling until you pee yourselves.
Why do I feel sad all of a sudden?
The goal: Be able to climb this thing all the way to the top within 4 weeks.
What kind of obstacle course workouts are you guys doing? I'd love to hear about them!
