Last Saturday I surfed for six hours. Three surfing, three body boarding. I’m still sore. My thighs, calfs, shoulders, neck. I know as we age it takes longer for our bodies to recover from exercise. In college, it’s measured in hours. Thirties in a couple’a days, past that it’s measured by how often one gets stressful workouts.
The more hard stuff you do in your life as well as how frequently you do it, the easier it is for your body. If you have a typical lethargic lifestyle, you will not be able to do in your later years what you used to be able to do when you were brand new!
Get off off your fat ass (easier said than done) and work that bod.
Im going to take my kid out west to ski in feb., and I want to be able to ski the whole time we are there. Gotta get in shape!
Hi, my name is
David Benjamin and I started swimming in Chappaqua, NY., swam for Badger swim team, Mercersburg Academy, NC State University, then Westport YMCA masters. I got bored of the ol' back and forth of competitive swimming and the high cost of skiing. Surfing took over and I never looked back.
