21ralphdibnyThu 14th Jan 2021 @render I feel the same about feeling like you have to start from the beginning again after an injury or something like that. I've got somewhat weak knees too from a meniscal tear injury I had at work. Obviously that + plantar fasciitis means I really have to build up strength in the surrounding muscles before I attempt anything high impact. I nearly always have an inflamed coccyx as well for some reason, I get that from sitting on uncomfortable chairs like at the dinner table and certain desk chairs so I'm mainly a sofa/armchair/bed guy when I'm at home. I know there is a correct way to sit but I just find it really uncomfortable so I prefer to be as horizontal as possible. PE was a mixed bag for me at school, I played rugby for a team when I was young so I was praised when we did coaching modules on the syllabus and used my pre-attained knowledge to build the training courses but generally I was pretty bad at sports. My top 3 "traumatising" memories from PE at school: 1. This wasn't so bad and I found it quite funny after the fact. My friend was throwing a discus like a frisbee so I showed him how to throw it properly like Hercules in Jason and the Argonauts. I don't know how he missed the instructions, the teacher literally showed us how to do it minutes before. Well anyway, my mate didn't believe me and asked the teacher. The teacher confirmed my method was correct but my mate told him that I said to use the frisbee method! The teacher then called me an idiot haha😂 2. At a gymnastics demonstration for parents (I weren't the best at gymnastics but I enjoyed it, probably because it was non-competitive), we had a routine to do. Anyway, I botched a cartwheel and landed on a girl who spent the rest of the night in tears. I was mortified and never did gymnastics again! 3. Dodgeball. Just Dodgeball. I hated it so very much. We had this real jock of a teacher do this class and he would revel in it. It was basically just having balls thrown at you. They were kind of these soft, not quite fully inflated balls but when they hit you, they would slap really hard and it really really hurt. I guess the point of this game is to take the pain but you would feel good about dishing it back out in revenge. Well I had a stupidly weak throw, whip, fling, whatever the method of throwing was so I could never get the satisfaction of revenge shots. This was just embarrassing and painful. Even worse when the jock teacher joined in the games or would just be cracking up at the sidelines!
