The Torchwood Drabble Files by badly_knitted

Summary: A collection of drabbles, mostly based on the weekly prompts at tw100. Mostly Jack/Ianto as that's what I write, but no doubt other Torchwood characters will pop in from time to time. All genres are possible, but expect mainly humour and fluff, because that's usually what comes out when I write. All are 100 words exactly in Word, but apparently not here!

The Torchwood Drabble Files by badly_knitted
Chapter 297: Working Out
Author's Notes: For the prompt ‘Isometrics and After’, one of the prompts I didn’t get around to using for tw100’s challenge 288 last year. I’ve dug them out again to supplement the prompts I got from my f-list, just because there are still loads I wanted to use.

Summary: Ianto likes to keep in shape, but there’s one kind of exercise he favours above all others.

As a Torchwood operative, Ianto knew the importance of keeping in shape. Fieldwork could be very physical; chasing Weevils, fighting hostile aliens, carrying all kinds of heavy objects. He did his best to keep to an exercise regime, but Torchwood’s irregular work hours made it difficult.

Still, he swam whenever he could spare the time, went running at least three times a week and even managed to fit in some weight training.

But this was undoubtedly his favourite fitness routine.

Breathing hard, body glistening with sweat, he collapsed in a heap beside Jack.

“Nothing beats sex for a full-body workout!”
