I'm one of the older members, having a "life attack" for most of 2007.
Around the time of my last post, I was diagnosed with shin splints. Doc said that as we age, we start to heal slower, blah, blah, blah, blah. I've suffered from shin splints all my life.
I never had issues with gymnastics, though, so I've got a plan in mind. I'm going to tone and slim down. Thank the Lord, my university has a nice gym and I've built time into my schedule to allow me to go down there, this semester.
I'm going to start building up my old gymnastics skills that were a bit more gentle to the body, but definitely show some strength and agility. In between, I'm going to give myself plenty of healing time for the different exercises I'm doing, along with building bone and muscle with weight training.
I'm still trying to round out my workouts, but I definitely want jumping rope to be in there, somewhere.
Hope you all have a wonderful start and finish to 2008!
