A new age-group best!
I woke up this morning with my muscles sore and my joints telling me that I may be getting a bit older for this type of impact sport that of distance walking and running. However, I woke up this morning, read the above, and felt mentally refreshed and motivated to start the day. It is reassuring I can still enjoy the running movement despite over 45 years of non-stop pitter patter on my feet and legs. Aging and the physiological results to our bodies can be complex, confusing, and in many cases discouraging. A better understanding and appreciation of running or walking can be had if we focus on the main aspects of what happens to our cardiovascular health and muscular development. With that mind, we can implement strategies to help “stay on the move” as we get chronologically older in age. This article will include untrained men, women, distance walkers, joggers, and competitive runners.
