「根が体育会系のあたし」 ?

Postby lgmcben » Sun 01.29.2006 3:18 am

Hi. I'm having some problem translating this phrase.

「根が体育会系のあたしは年上の彼女らに逆らうことができない」

My guess : "..... like me can't go against older woman like them"

..... is the part of 根が体育会系のあたし

根 means "root"

体育 means physical education

会 means meeting

系 means system, group

I tried my best to guess the meaning of this. Anyone know what kind of characteristic she is describing herself?

Thank you. :)

体育会系 means sportsman, but refers not only to the act of playing sports, but also the type of personality, or manners, that a sportsman should possess.

For a sportsman like me, it is impossible to go against her because she's older than me.
