Suffer Club – Workout #19

From where we stand on the hill, power lines stretch away into the distance, poles at semi-regular intervals, and those poles form a sort of ladder that runs a quarter mile up the steep, the perfect sort of ladder for a bunch of eager Sufferers to huff and puff up and down.

I called this one “The Stonehenge Ladder.” Here’s how it works. Everyone found a partner, and they were given a colored band to carry up the hill. The first partner runs to the first pole and drops their band, while the second partner embarks on the list of exercises below. When they return, they begin the exercise list, while their partner runs to the first pole, picks up their band and runs it to the next pole. They switch back and forth from running to exercising as they move their band up the hill and they each work their way down the exercise list.

At the top of our hill is Stonehenge. There are 19 or 20 poles between where we work out and the front door of that tower. The workout ended when everyone had made it to Stonehenge.
