I'm in that same boat (we are definitely gonna need a bigger boat ).I'm definitely declining with my athleticism. Might have been that last 100 lbs, not sure.
Definitely. At least in my book it does.I used to do sumo. Does sumo count as athletics?
Your wife and I must be athletic-twins! Phys Ed in school left me traumatized and to this day I viscerally hate and avoid organized sports or athletics of any type. My problem always was that - especially for a woman - I'm pretty strong and have stamina. Both are held in low esteem in female sports. Since I have no speed, no sense of balance, rotten hand-eye-coordination, small hands, short legs - all sorts of things that effectively keep me from achieving any athletic success. Many Phys Ed teachers were downright cruel about my lack of talent - instead of doing an objective analysis what I might be good at physically and where the limits of my abilities wereMy wife, on the other hand, is completely non-athletic. She's fairly active and likes walking and biking, but, like, she managed to break her arm with her knee trying to go over a vaulting horse as a kid, she can't stand any sort of sliding, really doesn't twist and turn well, doesn't even like to walk on uneven surfaces. It was something that was a bit hard to adjust to at first, as it was hard for me to accept that some things that seemed so obviously fun to me were somewhere between 'not-fun' and 'terrifying' to her. It really is amazing how much difference there can be between genetics and preferences and upbringing.
