When exercise means less pressure

If you are competitive by nature, chances are that it will translate in the way you handle your exercise routine, whether it's biking, running, or skiing.

This is true for a very long while, as long as your body remains a willing and capable participant. As one reach their peak, the pace suddenly slows down and the whole thing becomes less how fast and strongly you can do it, but how much pleasure and fun you get out of your favorite sport.

So, as we age, the competitiveness is eclipsed by the sheer enjoyment of whatever keeps you active. Shouldn't it have been that way all along?
