The couple both said in a group interview at Georgetown University Wednesday that it was not easy to finish her exercise routine, The Washington Post reported. Hillary Clinton said she provided her husband with Johnson’s book.

The former secretary of State told Ginsburg she finished the routine, “but without cameras” to record how she did, according to the Post.

Bill Clinton nominated Ginsburg in 1993, during his first term as president, saying at the event that he knew within 10 minutes of her interview that he would nominate her, the Post reported.

The justice acknowledged there were concerns about nominating her because of her age. Ginsburg, now 86, has started her 27th year on the court. 

She told an audience at Berkeley Law last week that her recent cancer diagnosis does not stop her from completing her workout.
