Hehe. I ended up taking a sick day today. I haven't done that in 10 years?? I'll be back at it tomorrow. Sore like crazy, but back at it.

I forgot to mention, the very first time I hurt my lower back, the project supervisor made me wax his Bronco hood on a 103 degree day. In the sun. Ah, those were the days. Back when, if you got hurt, you got yelled at or ostracized. So you learned to work hurt so you wouldn't get yelled at or "let the crew down." I'm sure my back is still happy about those days.

Back in the days when I did stupid things like run a mile, it would be agony the next day trying to go up or down stairs. The best medicine for that was to get out and walk about 1/2 mile to loosen things up. Doesn't work so well any more, but I haven't run further than across a street lately. wink

If you ever see me running look behind me because there's something bad chasing me.

I have no idea where the age cut off is for not having to pay attention to this stuff. All I know is *I'm* past it. But what I've learned is that if I want to keep being able to do what I want to, I have to maintain a regular level of cardio activity (sustained heart rate) burning those calories AND watch what and how much I eat. I can't have it both ways. I can't keep eating yummy foods and only exercising for short periods episodically and expect things to stay the same, much less improve. That's what my dad thought and he died a fat and lazy man who wasn't all that old (69).

Anyone else over 50 on a workout program care to share? Anybody else on a rowing machine (specifically a Concept II)? If you are interested in becoming a training partner, pm me.

As for me, there isn't much I can do about the "old" part (except try to achieve it smile ), but I am darn sure trying to do something about the Fat and Lazy part! Does my body hurt after a good workout or full day on the job site? You bet smile But a nice hot shower and a good night's rest is better than any pill. Besides, pain is just weakness leaving the body. smile

I had open heart surgery last June (5 bypasses). In August I won my age/weight bracket at the USAPL national benchpress championships. To put that in perspective I am 73 years old and only went to try and qualify with minimum weight as an alternate for the world championships. My doctor had limited me to lifting 10 pounds max. Even though I was weakened from the surgery, I did 210 quite easily - vanity not common sense (my wife was in the audience and had 911 dialed and ready on the phone). Luckily for me, no one in my bracket showed up, so my accomplishment was not that spectacular. But I felt could be strong again by May of 2020 for the worlds (cancelled due to covid).

I go to the gym 3 times a week and spend 2.5 hours lifting heavy (for me at least). Then I walk about 5 miles 4-5 times a week with with my wife (I slow her down though). Often somebody at the gym will compliment me on "showing those young guys how its done." The younger guys tell me they hope to be like me when they are as old. I'm not sure how to take that, It may be because I still have all my hair. It seems everyone at the has their reason for being there, some people even have walkers or a cane, but still workout. Most people my age tend to do "maintenance" exercises, but the important thing is that they are there, not on their couch.

I'm not trying to self-aggrandize, just set a perspective. I say it doesn't matter what you do, but the fact that you do it makes you a winner. I have as much respect for a person that can run a 4 mile as a person that walks that mile. For what I have read in this thread, you guys are exceptional, and in spite of any aches and pains earned as a result of your endeavors, you should be proud. You probably have the majority beat.
