It is my birthday, and I head out on the trail despite some of the nastiest weather in recent days, with rain, wind, and cold. But it’s still a beautiful day on Lake Fayetteville and a great day to still be alive after 53 years.
I am in the best shape of my life, when I consider all areas, mental, physical, and spiritual. This morning I was in the gym, like I am five times a week. I had six exercises to do, and increased resistance on 5 of them. So I am still getting stronger and not slowing down at all.
What do I mean “53 going on 29”? I am referring to the information I have found in the book Real Age, which is the best 20-year-old book on the subject of health you can read. In the book they say a person can reduce their “real age” by twenty-six years by taking the advice in the book. Since I’m not a smoker, and I am starting with some good things going already, I probably will not be able to add the full twenty-six years, but I’m going on that assumption today.
As an another attempt to add some cardio to my health strategy, I bought a pair of inline skates, so stay tuned for an unboxing episode, as well as the first (and last?) rollercast.
