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
