This really pains me to discuss this but I need to. I'm kind of in a similar situation as Naperville is. I used to be an avid distance runner. I ran in several 10Ks, 20Ks, Half Marathons and a few 5Ks. I tried 3 Marathons but crashed in all 3 of them I'm ashamed to say. But about 12 years ago both my knees went to hell in a handbasket. Since then I've had 3 replacement knees, 2 shoulder replacements, 1 hernia operation and both feet have had minor surgeries. I just turned 67 this past December but I've been told that I look young for my age.
That is a great idea! There is a pool here that I can probably join in a month after it reopens.
Yes, I have to eat smaller portions. I've hit a wall and I'm always hungry and not active enough to burn the calories off.JD Spydo wrote: ↑Mon Mar 22, 2021 9:56 pm...
But right at this time the long walks are all I'm attempting to stay on the safe side for now. I've even thought of going on a radical diet (mostly vegetarian) I might see where I can get a swimming membership at. But I'm all ears for anyone who has any good advice. I'm still in the market for a good bicycle ( mountain bike for all terrain) and I think my joints could handle that.
Good on ya, buddy. We can all be better than we currently are. You're only two years older than me. I could probably type for hours on fitness, as it's on my mind a lot because I'm a skilled mountain bike rider and I need to maintain my edge. I'll keep my thoughts down to a couple key points.
That is funny as all get out but accurate. When I was 35, I took a caliper test and was 210lbs at 6% body fat. Lets see how low in weight I can get in a year.
I cheated. I used Google Maps to find the distance and I'll be walking 4mi.Doc Dan wrote: ↑Mon Mar 22, 2021 11:34 pmI do not count miles. I count time when walking. I walk 45 minutes to an hour 3 to 4 days a week. I had to work up to that after my motorcycle accident. Time is better as studies have shown that walking a certain amount of time, not distance, helps you stay fit. I will go walking outside. I also go walking at the mall before the stores open (I tend to over do it in the mall sometimes).
I used to swim a little, but the physiotherapist has not given me permission to swim since I am still recovering from a shattered shoulder. I was swimming twice a week before the accident, but now they have closed the pools due to the pandemic lockdown (yes, stupid, I know). Swimming is the best all around exercise, in my opinion, but I still like to walk because it works muscles differently.
I'll have to research Natural Movement (or Movnat), by Erwan Le Corre.The Meat man wrote: ↑Tue Mar 23, 2021 5:36 amGood on you Naperville!
Have you ever looked at Natural Movement (or Movnat), by Erwan Le Corre? It's an interesting concept. I have only just become curious about it after hearing a few podcast interviews, but his "holistic" approach to complete body fitness and competency makes a lot of good sense to me. I recently ordered his book and have been reading it.
