I prefer to work out by myself. My wife my join me but I'm there competing and getting pushed by the hardest competition in existence... myself.
Can I mentally and physically conquer my own being?
Well, haven't worked out in a long time, but when I do, I prefer to work out alone...I can set my own schedule and my own pace. I used to jog until the creepy guys in my neighborhood began to walk the same route as me and talked to me too much. And my dogs began to chase cars and endangered everyone. I also used to work out in front of the TV, especially commercial breaks.
Those moms in your area probably would love to work out with you...their bodies are probably flabby from not being able to exercise. You could jog with them if they had a special stroller for the baby.
I work out alone and with people, it depends on what I'm doing. I think the important thing is to get the work done though . . .
