i got old today

my body is officially in decline.

up and through college, i would not exercise for months, suddenly go for a run or play some tennis and not feel any aches.

today, i ran 4 miles for the first time since the fall and now feel like my knees are going to push right through my skin and explode.  it took me thirty seconds to climb a flight of stairs just now to get to my desk.

sigh — it’ll be the glue factory for me by next winter.

    awww, poor guy. don’t worry I know exactly how you feel, I’ve been there before. it’s possible you started too fast. you should also stretch a bit, it helps relieve some of the aches.

    I fenced for the first time in years just the other day, and I must have been a little too enthusiastic with my lunges. my left ass cheek felt like someone beat on it with a baseball bat. I could barely sit on the toilet for 3 days.

    I think for maximum benefit you should just aim to keep your heart rate just under your sub-max (0.85*(220-your_age)) or about 167bpm.
