It may not be advisable at my age and in my current physical condition to run three miles, then immediately drive to go to karate sparring class for an hour. My legs were tired after. Today, I think Jello may be made of stouter stuff. I didn't think I was going to make it into my truck, or out of my truck and up to the court house.

 

My brain thinks I'm 18, my body wants to slap my brain silly.

Hmmm....Maybe that's my problem. :D

 

I think I'm 25 'til I look in the mirror. :rolleyes:

I have to keep reminding myself that this is the year I quit pushing 60 and start dragging it.

If you're that old and still able to run three miles then go do karate you're doing a helluva lot better than a lot of guys half your age. B)

I agree, but it's the rest of them I'm trying to stay ahead of!

Sheesh! It gets "old" to hear read all of you "kids" complaining about how old you are.

I was only partially complaining about how old I am. More so about not recognizing, or perhaps caring about, the limitations that come with my age and my current physical condition. More of a "what was I thinking" complaint!

 

If it helps, my instructor just turned 74, and I am constantly amazed by him. He doesn't look or move like your typical 74 year old! I am pretty sure if he were to slip into his sparring gear, he could still take me.

You don't look 70. I'd have guessed 59-63; could be the hat throwing me off though ;)

I went sparring again today. Me, and two other senior brown belts were the only three that were there. A good solid warm up, followed by nearly an hour of sparring bouts. Rotating in and out meant two minutes of sparring followed by a one minute rest, then another two minutes and a three minute breather, more or less. All more advanced brown belts, all going at it as full tilt as the rules allow. Maybe a bit more... It's going to be a night heavy on the pain reliever and IcyHot.

 

I know I'm too old for this stuff, but I think I enjoy it more now than I did twenty years ago!

I've had those days. Those shadows seem to anticipate my every move!

If the shadows leave bruises, you are doing something wrong.
