My husband and I have a re-occurring argument that annoys me. A little background first: -He is very athletic and talented when it comes to sports. He is also very thin (6'4" and 165 pounds). An avid biker (road and mountain), he is extremely competitive. He is getting up at 4:00 am tomorrow (a Saturday!) to go on a 60 mile bike ride. For fun. -I am very uncoordinated, and horrible at sports. I really enjoy walking, and could walk for hours and hours (usually around 8 miles per day). I also enjoy biking, but I enjoy riding on trails at an easy pace, and more for enjoyment. I do not have a competitive bone in my body. Tonight we went for a walk on a local trail. He said, "Let's run until we reach that sign up there." I hate running, but fine. So we started jogging, and he was encouraging me to pick up the pace. I said that I was out of breath, and going as fast as I could (my heard rate was 180). He stopped running, and said, "Fine. It's not even worth it then." Bottom line is that he gets really upset that I don't want to push myself more. His big complaint is that he really enjoys being with me, and wants me to find a hobby that we can enjoy together. He is always comparing us to other couples. "Tyler and his wife mountain bike together" or "There were tons of husbands and wives at the bike race today." I try to explain to him that I really enjoy walking and leisurely biking, but I don't want to spend the money on a nice bike, and not use it if I end up hating it. I'm so frustrated, and I don't know what to do. Should I just suck it up, and try competitive biking with him? Part of me feels like this is who I am, and we've been together for 5 years, so he should know this!
