I may not have totally reached my physical limits, but my body is telling me that the limits are in sight. And by "in sight", I do not mean something glimpsed just peeping up over the horizon. I instead mean something on the grill of the Mack truck that is looming larger in your vision with every passing second.
I am 39; not 29. I should know that the following may be too much:
Mon. 45 minutes serious cardio.
Tue. Squash, additional cardio, pilates.
Wed. Heavy weight lifting, Squash.
Thurs. Squash, additional cardio.
Fri. Squash, pilates.
The body is cramped and hurts a bit in places where I wasn't entirely aware I had places (pace, Ms. West). I will not try to slip out of the house early on Saturday morning now to go play squash at the local racquet club. I want to, mind you, but I will not. Instead, I will sink into my own decrepitude and hope that the damage I have wrought will have healed up by Monday, so I can start all over again. After all, I have a squash date that morning.
Still, I have never been one to acknowledge physical limits, at least, not happily or willingly. So to be confronted by them now is not pleasant.
I have no intention of aging gracefully.Posted by Random Penseur at January 19, 2007 11:40 AM | TrackBack
