Going full steam back into the gym recently after weeks of not doing a thing, my body really felt the pain. Who said there was a thing as muscle memory?
Well, it’s my own fault actually. I didn’t just start off with a quick and easy workout. I started off with a 60 minute Rumble class at the Gym which is basically a fast pace, circuit-based boxing class!
My muscles didn’t seem to remember any way of recovering after that class!!!
It literally felt like I had shackles on my ankles and elbows (yes elbows) and every time I laughed my entire right side pulled stiff.
Must be age catching up with me?
Is it just plain old human nature to compare things?
Most of us are guilty of comparing ourselves with others at some point, even when we know that we really shouldn’t. I suppose it’s a bit of human nature to see how we fare against our peers in certain respects, but it will never ever be a fair comparison.
Everyone is different. We all have our own strengths and weaknesses and we are all at different stages of our lives.
But when it comes to raising your kids, is it normal to compare your own children with each another?
