Two phrases that have probably been around for years but I’ve only heard them for the first time in the last week or so.

type II fun
I came across this in a Bikepacking.com article. Although it’s a new phrase for me it’s definitely one I’ve experienced before!
Type 2 fun is miserable while it’s happening, but fun in retrospect. It usually begins with the best intentions, and then things get carried away. Riding your bicycle across the country. Doing an ultramarathon. Working out till you puke, and, usually, ice and alpine climbing. Also surely familiar to mothers, at least during childbirth and the dreaded teenage years.REI.com
