POLL: How did you really feel about gym class back in school?

Does dodgeball bring back fond memories… or flashbacks of panic?

Gym class! We all had to do it at some point. Probably. There are some things that all physical education classes had in common — a coach wearing a whistle and polyester shorts, smelly socks, red rubber balls, and whatnot. 

But everyone's experience in P.E. was unique. Some kids loved the games and sports that we played. Some kids dreaded getting picked last or, even worse, pegged by a dodgeball. 

No wonder, then, that gym-class scenes are a staple of TV shows that take place in high school.

I stopped taking it when I realized I was exercising more during the weekend than I was in class during the week.

The teacher needed to guide some students to do your best, try & improve.

I only remember two things from gym: That little wooden square thing with wheels that we rode across the floor, and a huge canvas ball (but I don't remember what we did with it). Too long ago.

PE in junior high was fun, but not in high school. Both the outdoor running track and its "grass" infield were as hard as reinforced concrete, with the latter also being extremely uneven. The PE teachers were less than inspiring. Growing up in a culture that valued education at the expense of athletics haunted me with a vengeance back in high school.

I have fond memories of PE. During softball in elementary school, I ALWAYS made sure that I was in the right outfield, where the ball NEVER came. Very enjoyable. In intermediate school and high school, I REALLY ENJOYED being in a girl's only class. It was very special to do a variety of games and activities only with girls. We did gymnastics, fencing, half court basketball, golf, and tennis.
