Ugh. I normally am old enough that I'm not plagued by body image problems anymore. But I was at the dog park yesterday, saw a young guy who looked incredibly fit. We started talking and it turns out he's a crossfit box owner. He just looked the part. And when I told him I was a personal trainer, I felt like such a poser because I don't look the part! I work w/ older clientele so it's not an issue w/ them, or I don't think it is. I actually think it makes me more approachable. But, when it comes to meeting other fitness professionals, ugh, I feel almost apologetic, like "I can do pull ups!,I'm fit!" although I'm probably at my least fit in years right now. Anyway, that was just my rant. I'm sure he didn't think twice. Then, at parkour, I was so whiny in the first class because I can't do much w/ two bad ankles (as I put it, I have one bad ankle that won't heal and one bad ankle w/ the new sprain that will). I'm not feeling down, I had a great night doing silks and this new student who's a gymnastics instructor told me I was doing the moves better than our instructor. So, it's just a reality check. I'm getting older.
I'm not sure what I'll do today. It's wall week at parkour which means we're doing a lot of jumping and climbing up walls. It's too much for my newly hurt ankle so maybe i'll just do the condiitioning class.
