it's the sun probably, isn't it?
Weird this. You know I was a total sports spacka and so never got a much of a sense of what this was like, chasing a ball or "winning". Apart from in fighting and sparring in martial arts I guess. I do enjoy lifting big bits of metal around though. There's something about it that's great, its' so absorbing "will I be able to do this life? Or not?". Competition with the self I guess - I often can't finish the routines from the programme I work from so have to scale them but I'm pleased when I do, not least 'cos they hit fitness from a range of angles. I'm glad I found something that works for me.Similar to what I was saying above right? You're happily chuntering along doing enough exercise and then something happens to stop you - your routine changes, you get injured, you're too old to play football - so you have to replace it with boring, mechanical exercise.
For me that's bad cos I love sport but hate exercise. I just don't see myself sticking to any kind of routine that doesn't involve chasing a ball.
