Teaser Tuesdays

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading.

Grab your current read. Open to a random page. Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page. BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!) Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Ultimate Fitness: The Quest for Truth about Exercise and Health by Gina Kolata p. 142

"He wanted to let us actually feel some of the emotions and rewards that drive people like him, and to feel the extraordinary changes in the body's physiology that can occur when you push yourself hard - if, that is, you are genetically able to train. For just a brief time, he thought, we might be able to see his world."

This is about Josh Taylor, the Spinning instructor who came up with the Mount Everest event, which sounds pretty dreadful. Gina is training for it with her husband. But then, I think everything about Spinning sounds pretty dreadful. I just walk. But I'm learning some cool things about exercise.

I will admit, my only exposure to spinning was making my old boss' appointments for it (and working it into his schedule). Interesting teaser!

Rather interesting.

I can just imagine getting pinched in weird ways if I try doing sit ups in a corset. *sigh*

Stop by and check out my Reading Bucket List challenge that will be going on through out 2011 :)
