Physical limits

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.

I was thinking the exact same thing this morning. A month from 41 and I'm starting to notice things aren't as limber, quick, tight, etc as they used to be. I refuse to acknowledge this, however, and will fight it as much as possible.

BTW...do you enjoy Pilates? A friend recommended it to help me stay limber, but I don't know anything about it.

These sun glasses not merely seem to be fashionable and contemporary but have a stability towards plastic that claims it truly is good quality... the contacts needless to say are straightforward inside the face and comfy to have a look with and therefore are a blessing in case the sunshine is extreme resulting in.

That is my last but not least two of Gascans and that means you cannot conquer the amount on Rain forest. Presented by Dexclusive and appeared punctually. Great get hold of.
