Training after 40

What could possibly go wrong with my plan? I would go swimming after not doing so for 4 months. I would swim more than half a mile (750 meters), in a combination of breaststroke and freestyle, which would entail swimming for 35 minutes with only tiny short breaks to catch my breath.

Yeah. And then my back would go out. Who could have seen that coming?

I'm such an idiot.

Oh B, I'm sorry. 40 seemed to be the brutal marker for me too, as if the body suddenly wand without mercy said, "I quit." I'm much more gentle with it now that I've suffered indignities and infirmities.

Get better soon.

Didn't you learn anything from my Wii Active post the other day. Best not to jump right back in w/ the hard. We seriously need to learn about easy and medium. :)
