just returned to running after not doing it for 20 years!
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." --Mark Twain
Skipping is a new challenge for me after 50+ yrs. of not doing it.I bought a skipping rope the other day and am proud of being able to do it about 2-3 mins. at a time. Don't live anywhere near a gym so I either have to do exercises off paper or just walk and do simple stuff. Being 64 I just am happy to spend a lot more time above the ground.
"The world is one country and mankind its citizens" one of the many truths spoken by Baha'u'llah and "Love is the light that guideth in darkness, the living link that uniteth God with man, that assureth the progress of every illumined soul."
I'm going to try the adductor/abductor machine at the gym. The one where you pull your legs together or apart. It looks scary to me for some reason, but I think I can add it in to my strength training on Friday.
