The Big SIX THREE Today!
30 didn't bother me
40 didn't bother me
50 didn't bother me
BUT....when I hit 60, I realized I wasn't a kid any more, and some changes would have to be made!
Well, Mother Nature took care of that last year, first with a MRSA infection, and then my cardiac incident requiring three stents to fix.
Still have some weight to lose (I can drive by an In-N-Out and gain 5 pounds), but I've been getting more active since the first of the year with things like walking the dog nightly, doing yard work (we fired the yard service and I bought a small electric mower), volunteering on the Iowa, and scrambling around working on the Supra.
I know my limits, and when I first started getting more active, I had to stick to about a "50% duty cycle", of 15 minutes yard work followed by a 15 minute break.
Now I can do about 30~40 minutes, and only need a 5 minute break to drink some cold water.
After either this Thursday's or Friday's layoff, I'll have LOTS of time to get my groove back, along with building up my stamina back to where I think it should be.
And the dog will probably lose a little weight, too!
