Well, m'dears, The New York Times published an article on this kind of energy-unequal relationships. An excerpt:
Every couple has its share of thorny issues, but when the point of tension is that one partner craves exercise and the other doesn’t, it can strain even the healthiest relationship, according to psychologists, fitness instructors and marriage therapists. Not only does the exerciser frequently cut into the couple’s time together. But unlike more frivolous diversions like, say, knitting or playing “Madden NFL” online, it is difficult for an aggrieved partner to complain about another’s healthy activity without sounding like a saboteur.
That Americans laud fit people’s ability to get up and go, and look down on the flabby as weak-willed, also can put a strain on athletically mismatched couples.Some people even avoid relationships with those who abhor exercise:
Not exercising is a deal breaker for some single people. “I would have a hard time respecting someone who didn’t respect her body in the same way I do,” said Alex Hahn, a 40-year-old lawyer in Boston, who works out roughly 10 hours a week.
Tired of having to justify herself, Rebecca Thurman, 39, a massage therapist and marathon runner in Atlanta, says she will no longer date a man who doesn’t prize fitness.
“They don’t understand why you need to work out two or more hours a day,” she said, “or why you eat the way you do, or why you go to bed early and get up at the crack of dawn to go to the gym, or why you can’t do late-night dinner parties, or why you have a personal trainer, coach, massage therapist and chiropractor on payroll.”
Once she had dinner with a man who said: “How can you go out and run for three hours? It just seems so boring!” (That was their only date.)

That was speedy for all of us, esp. in the high altitude. My nose is still running and I'm still sneezing, but my energy is coming back.
