MarilynI'm exhausted. My new exercise class is so hard.
RichardYour new exercise class?
MarilynYeah. My new advanced exercise class.
RichardWhy advanced?
MarilynMy instructor thought that the beginner's class was too easy for me.

MarilynDon't laugh. In the beginner's class, they give you a chance to rest between exercises.
MarilynThe advanced class is nonstop.
RichardI lift weights every morning for sixty minutes without stopping. No problem.
