seriously, i am a student of martial arts and at my old age of 44 i would not consider competeing anymore, respect
mm -packed it in again shortly after as I started smoking again and felt that my bones and running would suffer Bit daft really but there you go.
My aim now is doing ultras and stopping my COPD in its tracks
you look fit Vicky
ultras, now that is something i would'nt go near
Home time wrote (see)
Vicky, would you play football with peeps the same age as you
come on kit spit! btw -we have Hardy ,now but where is Laurel? Is she too busy analizing?
the thread when I was reluctant to join a judo club? (which I did and got to do the bout mentioned above)
the threads where I mentioned my not looking like a proper runner and the forum Sigmunds decided to give analysis-lol?
There's not much I think i'd shy away from TBH Home!! I'm now 34 and about 18 in my head!! Big kid really!!
Never been fitter in my life I dont think and having just done a 12 mile training run comfortably am currently loving my running, i'd be doing a lot more stuff if I had more time to myself!!
I do pick up the odd item of clothing though, think twice, and put it back thinking i'd look a bid sad and trying to look younger than I am!! I live in sportswear really and always have done!!
hoose, seriously, i am a student of martial arts and at my old age of 44 i would not consider competeing anymore, respect
I don't know of any of my sensei's in this country or in Japan who are still at the tender age of 44.
They are all also still competing
There's nothing I've given up, or won't do, because I think I'm too old.
I don't wear tiny short skirts, or have acres of skin on show (except in the gym, or running in the summer) because I think it looks chavvy - whatever age you are.
(Having said that, I think it looks even worse on the flabbier and/or wrinklier women!)
Wilkie - I generally agree but have also developed a fear of looking like 'mutton'.
not yet to give up yet, just more realistic as to what my body is capable off,although i do keep pushin it and suffering for it sometimes.
my mind on the other hand is what gets me hurt,as it constantly tells me i can do things as well as i used to when i was 18
I used to go for nights out where I could eat my cake and have it (some time later). Can't cope with that like I used to.
Life's too short to give up on friends like I used to. Used to think I could do it all myself, but now realise I need help. I hope my friends are old enough to realise the same...
