50, implying that "those who can't invent, teach" and "those who can't teach, teach PE" is very ignorant and rude. There are some people who aspire to teach others or to study kinesiology because that's what they like to do. Everyone has different talents but that doesn't make one person less than another.
Guys, this is why we need PE. The youth in America is extremely lazy and obese. I'm 17, I can play clarinet, and squat 315lbs and bench 190lbs. I get off my ass, and go ride my bike. I play football, both for my school, and for fun outside. I achieve a solid 3.75 GPA in AP and accelerated courses.
Haha, wow. I didn't know there were so many anti-atheletics out there. And playing the clarinet, and my GPA show that athletics aren't my only focus. It may sound like I'm on a "high horse", but really, I'm saying, it's not impossible to be both, get out there and get off your asses.
Depends on your situation, Afro. Some people don't have the environmental stimuli to be motivated to do everything, where you grow up, your self worth, your quality of life and income play a huge role in your athletic and academic success, it doesn't take a gifted person to be successful but at the same time not everyone is "sitting on their asses" instead of getting out there. There's also other things to be good at than academic and athletic traits.
People have problems, you know 119. For example I've been in 4 comas and hospitalized over 20 times, I've had catheters, NG tubes, and up until a couple years ago, I didn't know it wasn't standard procedure to get an IV when going into the ER. That completely cut out any hand-eye coordination and I can't metabolize protein to make muscles so there goes that. Now would you call me lazy or a fighter? You never know but there may be some underlying reason as to WHY people can't do everything as easily as you can. Not everyone was made perfect.
Look, I feel sorry that life took a big shit on you. I realize some people have it rough. A buddy of mine wanted to train but his stage 4 cancer kinda put a damper on the training. I know some people can't physically do it. But the OP never once said," I have *insert physical disability here*". And there is no way, that half of the 1/3 of America that is obese have these extreme medical problems.
That was mainly for 153. And you're right. I agree completely, because I feel that if I was paralyzed, or lost the ability to at least maintain my physical fitness, I would feel life past that wouldn't be worth living. Both my parents were athletes, and I guess I'll try to get my future children interested. After all, what's life worth, if you can't really live it.
You skipped? I've been running all wrong, it seems. What's next? Playing hopscotch? Might take a couple minutes off my time.
I would simply not do it. Either that or slowly walk the entire way taking as long as humanly possible.
I almost feel as if 9 is saying actually skip a lap. Like the movement of skipping. It is great advice and I would do it flamboyantly. I hated PE teachers like that. I had one that made me run despite a pinched hip nerve and a doctors note to stay off it. I walked the whole damn thing.
