So here's my question: am I a freak? Or are a notable percentage of those people lying?
It could be a small percentage. It could be exaggeration. But I have a hard time believing I'm the only person who feels like crap post-exercise.
I feel tired. I feel disgusting. I feel sore, though usually not right away. I feel disappointed in myself. I feel like everyone's judging me for not being as good as them. I feel resentful, because I don't like feeling obligated to put in the kinds of hours the hardbodies do.
I don't think I've ever once gotten the post-exercise endorphin rush.
They say do exercise that is fun, but we've already discussed how dancing is impractical, and trust me, kayaking is worse. And I honestly can't think of any other exercise I really enjoy. I'm open to suggestions, but I've thought about it enough that, fair warning, most of them I've already considered and am prepared to shoot down.
But I don't think that's the point. The point is, why don't I get any of the satisfaction that seemingly everyone else, ever, gets?
