Youth is so...

Saturday, December 24, 2011

... wasted on the young. (Tounge-in-cheek here) I'm sitting here, ten days into no weight lifting due to a pulled Trapezius and really figiting about it. So, Monday my wife comes home from the night class and one of her students, a big soccer player, was walking around on the ball of one foot complaining of pain in trying to set his foot to a normal position after Sundays league game and, as she's mentioned my playing the game, asked what he should do for it. Hardly thinking about it I grunted something about knee hyperextention and heat to treat it. By Wednesday he's fine. "Wow, that really worked!" he says to my wife. I know my injury and am doing everything right to treat it and it's not ready to resume after a week. This guy is fine in 24 hours. In the original movie Arthur, Dudley Moore asks John Gielgood what he wants. Gielgoods' response, "I want to be young again" Dudleys' response "Sorry, it's your job to be older". Sigh...

    We should aim to be young at heart, literally, by doing our most to keep healthy in mind, body and spirit.
