Picture the scene. We are on holiday in a caravan (white trash). There is a lovely, quiet ambience to the place, and approximately 10 feet of space between our caravan and the next. My husband has woken on a beautiful sunny morning and decided that we should
participate in a family WOD. I point out that I am sleeping in a caravan and that my spine has crumbled so acutely during the night that my head is now permanently angled at 48 degrees west. This falls on deaf ears and before I know it there are 4 of us grunting like lunatics in full view of our fellow chavs. Even 5 year old Ollie is giving it some welly.
We are subjected to a workout of squats, sit-ups and press-ups on the minute, every minute, from 5 ascending to 15. Net curtains are twitching and I am wondering why the hell I am not eating a sausage butty (yes, ok, I don’t eat bread) and manning the stop-watch instead of showing my arse to the neighbours in a very ungainly toilet-seat position. Is this what they mean by no pain, no gain?
I did, however, manage to finish ahead of the aforementioned husband, which afforded me the opportunity to take a humiliating photograph of him mid press-up. Nah nah nah nah nah.
