Open Thread: Trampoline

Hosted by trampoline tricks
Last week Spouse-Man and I cashed in a gift certificate for an hour and a half at an indoor trampoline park.  It was pretty much an exercise in finding out that we are, in fact, old now.

Don't get me wrong, it was amazing fun!  But after less than 10 minutes, I had to stop, get water, catch my breath and slow my heart rate.  After 30 minutes we were both flagging.  At 60 minutes he injured his shoulder (doing an ill-advised back flip) and I somehow messed up my back.  We got the last 30 minutes as a rain check...

But while it lasted, it was incredible.  Despite my body's weaknesses and limitations, I moved like I move in dreams, and I flew into the air with (what seemed like at the time) zero effort.  Made me remember why I loved those things so much as a kid.

Open thread!  When was the last time you were on a trampoline?  Do you have any of those indoor trampoline parks in your area, and if so, have you tried them out?  Can you do anything cool like flips, or do you just kinda bounce in place like me?  If you can't or don't want to use a trampoline, what other things do you like to do that are both fun and kinda (at least to you) physically taxing?


Monday Reminder!  While I have fun coming up with pretty pictures and/or interesting “prompt” questions for open threads, you aren’t limited to those!  These threads are open - go wild, talk about whatever moves you!  (Just remember that this is still a safe space, please!)  

And, like on all threads: please remember to use the "post new comment" feature rather than the "reply" feature, even when directly replying to someone else!
