04/20/2004 Entry: "Heather Corrina and Domesticat on womanly physical strength"

"Plus, there's an irony here: people of size are everywhere told it is utterly impossible for them to be fat and fit. And yet, when you're small and compact (and really, petite is not a word for me: I'm 5'3, but about 135-140 pounds -- I have big bones and I have lots of muscle) -- and female, moreover -- you're apparently incapable."
Heather Corrina, April 20, 2004

"Still, it's hard not to look at some of the men whom I see in the gym almost every day, and compare my weightlifting ability unfavorably. The truth is that while I know I'm not the first woman in the world to do a bench press (bless Krista of stumptuous.com for her funny and honest weightlifting-for-women site, which reminds me of that fact) it's hard to judge how I'm doing when I don't have anyone to compare myself to.

"Then I remind myself: not only am I female, I'm only an inch and a half over five feet tall. Silly girl! The only thing I can do is aspire to the best that I'm capable of being. Ignore the boys. They're on a different playing field altogether."
Domesticat, April 20, 2004

I'm not sure if I need to read a wider variety of blogs or start working out more, but when Heather Corrina and Domesticat post on more or less the same thing on the same day, it's got to be a sign of something.
