Age doesn't matter but...
Yes I'm slow but I can work, run and walk them all into the ground. But it did make me think about a few age related things and even though age doesn't really matter there is a but for sure.
Recovery takes much longer than before. Getting back into shape also takes longer. I think it is related to the fact that getting out of shape speeds up as you get older.
I'm currently building up again after being sick. This is where my body tells me I am not 20 or 30 anymore. Not in what I can achieve, but in how long it takes to get there.
Recovery is certainly taking longer than 15 years ago. Recovery from sickness or after a heavy fall or maybe some other injury or mishap. This is where I feel I am no spring chicken anymore.
Luckily age also brings wisdom and I know from years of experience I must just be patient and persevere. I will get there and I will achieve those awesome goals.
Age doesn't matter, but be wise about it.
