Our bodies, Ourselves
My trainer, Dan, sent me a link to an article which explained that if you are unlucky enough to have a sedentary job, you have basically signed your own death warrant. It doesn't matter if you carve out 30 minutes a day for aerobics, if you spend the rest of your day at desk, your body will rebel. Is this the reason we are having issues with our bodies? We spend too much time on our butts.
My squash partner tonight advised me "Advil before the game and Advil after the game". You know you're going to be sore. (I AM!) I was late getting home for dinner tonight because of the aforementioned game - I had an extra long hot shower and a stint in the sauna where I massaged my calves.
As I lowered myself into my chair at dinner tonight, Bill gave me a look: "DON'T GIVE IN TO YOUR AGE". I don't intend to. I hate to take medication - it goes against the grain. But, tonight I took an Aleve to numb my aches. And a healthy glass of Cotes du Rhone - that helps, too.
