Out of condition? Getting older? Both?
Wednesday, March 13, 2019
I have plenty of free time every March, so I’m trying to step up exercise. I always do a lot of walking, but I’ve let ST and more intense cardio go by the wayside. I usually slack off during term time but when I come back to it, I don’t feel like a beginner - except this time. It’s been a bit of a shock. Is it worse this time because I’ve slacked off more than I thought, or is it that aging has caused me to lose more when slacking off?
(I don’t feel quite like her - a bit puzzled, that’s all LOL!)
I’m starting to get back a bit of muscle strength and my legs are strong anyway because of living Japanese style on the floor and constantly popping up and down for this or that. I did my first jumping-around cardio today, and even though I modified it, I felt my head get hot like when I almost got heat stroke. I’m sure that if I stick with all the extra exercise gently but persistently, I’ll get my fitness back, but it’s left me with admiration for those of you in my age group (68) who stick at it.
