Athletic spouses/ you ever feel inferior to them?

    My husband is a college swimmer so, naturally, he is in fantastic shape.  I, however, am definitely not in as great of shape as he is, especially since I gave birth to my daughter.  He always tells me that I am beautiful, but my own insecurities sometimes make me feel inferior.  Anyone else feel this way?

    I think everybody is a little insecure sometimes.  But usually, in comparison, no.  I haven't had a baby, so I don't know about that.  I suppose it takes a little bit to get back to how you were before, but judging by friends, etc., it seems doable.

    I gotta say, though, I run and I just started biking, but I wouldn't want to do it with a BF or a spouse.  Often too competitive!  Why, I don't know.  But it is much easier to exercise with girlfriends or a guy friend.

    Getting into a relationship leads you down the inevitable route of the 'comfort zone' both parties think they dont have to impress the other and start letting go of themselves.
