    Hiking in the mountains with full gear for boot camp/combat school. I never knew what it meant to sweat until then. Completely drenched, like I had walked through the shower room in my utilities uniform.

    In a more general sense, I wonder if soldiers and athletes experience that particular sensation. I can certainly see soldiers being repeatedly pushed beyond their normal limits of fatigue.
    That only happens to me during the first month of hard training (march, usually). Afterwards, even if I force, I'm still in the boundaries of my limits.

At the top, I had to descend for 25 km with the first 12 under snow and freezing rain. Most people risked falling simply because were were all trembling really hard (it was the end of june, so this weather was quite unexpected). After that, I didn't touch my bike for 1 month.
    Yikes! O_O That doesn't sound safe at all.
    I had the opposite. I had to do a 3 mile cross-country race, somehow almost all uphill [it is known as one of the hardest xc courses in the world], in 110 degree weather.

    Honestly, running has always been the hardest for me. Just straight up simple running. I've been battling it nearly my entire adulthood, and I'm only now very very recently starting to think it isn't the work of the devil. It's the only solitary exercise that completely drains me when I'm done with it.

    A close cousin of the run is the circuit training. Yaay for running in circles and doing various difficult exercises between runs. It's like a downhill spiral. You think "Yay I made it to the station no more running!" and then the exercise you do makes you think "Plz just let me run again... plz.." rinse, repeat.

    My favorite way of exerting myself: sports or activities. I tend to forget my physical pains in the face of entertainment.

    for me, my most brutal excercise was once when i really pushed myself way beyond my limits running. it was just regular running, on the street in NYC, nothing special. but i just kept going. there was no real reason or mental attitude behind it, it was not a question of 'how far can i go' or endurance test or running from my problems. i just kept running. anyway, i finally collapsed and had to just lay there for a while, until i could call somebody to pick me up.

    Halla, i also occasionally push myself with exercise, until i can't take any more. not often, but sometimes i just can't stop. i push myself in cardio workouts instead of weight training, but i think that is just because cardio is more natural/comfortable for me. i am a cardio guy, for sure.

    playing midfield in soccer...very tiring, but fun, if my coach and teammates would allow me to play this position after me complaining so much

    running sprints around a track (sprint, walk, sprint, walk) tiring and boring at the same time

    if not paced, long distance running wears me out, plus is boring, unless you're running around some beautiful countryside (slowly) which I never had the opportunity to do

    anything that makes my muscles and heart work beyond contemplation of the feat lol

    swimming laps...gawd never a more grueling exercise. i simply refuse to swim laps

    isometric exercises are the most painful ever, and a second runner up to aerobic exercise (personally I'd rather do isometric)

    Nah...cycling uphill is much worse than that, especially when you start doing it for the first time.
