Fastwalker, I read the beginning of that article but felt that it did not apply to me. At my time in this life, exercise is doing some water aerobics in my spa and going to the grocery (I get help to my car that's in the disabled section). A long walk is a half mile out. I do drink a Starbucks each day during my walk.

In my late forties, I consistently rode my bike 300 miles a week, while walking 8 to 10 miles a day besides all my other activities. I was teaching my GD how to do back flips one after the other while in my 50's. I never took the time for coffee.LOL

When you're young, you shouldn't need coffee. Your active life will give you a natural high. As old age comes, it's time to take a sip of coffee while taking a stroll.

Happy holidays,
Marty

Did anyone else read the featured article on Caffeine and exercise? Newest study says caution to those of us with heart conditions - 2 cups of coffee before exercise can reduce the blood flow to the heart during exercise. Interesting...I love coffee in the morning. Most of my daily workouts are midday, so might be fun to experiment to see if I went a week or two without caffeine to see if my exercise felt easier. I have EA with severe regurgitation, so blood flow to the heart for me is important. I also monitor my heart rate during exercise.

It's sure hard to not overdo things.
