As You Get Older

Can we age without getting old?

Fall hiking in Glacier
Hiking Highline Trail next to Haystack Butte, back in September. Age should not have us wondering if we can or cannot hike through mountain trails.

 

Yesterday’s workout was a great reminder of how being relatively pain-free is one of our bests gifts to ourselves.

i’m “nursing” a shoulder pain that came out of nowhere. It’s likely brought on from repetitive overuse, or from some of the new exercises i’m doing.

As we age and lead less active lifestyles, our muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, cardiovascular system, skin, tissue and so on becomes worn with use and disuse.

Ever Think Like This?

Where do you see yourself?

Best Disney Institute Speakers
As a Disney Institute participant, i was asked to walk through Disney’s Hollywood Studios with my tablemates and photograph Magic.

Capturing a moment in time. My two partners are from South America. i was participating to learn the logistics of a new technology involving iPads in our Disney Institute curriculum.

i’m one of the slowest people in the world.

i’m one of the fastest people in the world.

Which one is true?

They’re both true.

How?

In the middle (think bell curve) of an age-based runner demographic of 55 to 59-year-olds, i’m one of the fastest.

But if we followed a traditional bell curve to the far right, and compared my speed to the outliers – the strongest and most fit 55 to 59 year-olds – i’m one of the slowest.

#Self-Reflection

Be careful where you set your bar. It may be too low.

A low bar has a direct and proportion affect on our motivation to achieve great things.

Our motivation influences our result.

You’re welcome.

Age means nothing and exercise gets unfairly criticized

Motivation IS Oxygen – without purpose we are doomed

 

The 70-something woman who has never exercised commented last night that she has much more energy after her physical therapy sessions.

Afterwards she has the energy to do four or five errands – something previously unheard of.

For five weeks she’s been going to therapy to strengthen her legs because in five days she is having knee replacement surgery.

The stereotype is that exercise makes us tired.

Guess again.
