Take care of yourself when you're young, or you'll regret it when you're older

Between buying a house and various other distractions, I have been a lazy slacker for the past couple of months. I pretty much stopped going to the gym, so aside from jujutsu and walking from the parking lot to my office, I have been getting hardly any exercise since the beginning of the year. Well, unless you count moving 70 boxes of books. :o

So anyway, I finally hit the gym again this week, with the earnest intention of resuming my regular routine. Of course I threw myself right into a workout, but at a "light" intensity, something that would have been little more than a warm-up for me last year.

Two days later, I'm still hurting.

And boy can I feel it, the fact that I don't just recover and heal as quickly as I did when I was younger. Just like I don't bounce up off the mats after being thrown as quickly as I once did. I swear, gravity increases with age.

Aging kind of sucks. :\

And yet, whining aside, I'm still in better shape than most guys my age. Or for that matter, a fair number of guys half my age. I am definitely in better shape now than I was when I was younger. Aside from, you know, being older.

Youth is wasted on the young. :P
