Going to start a new walk routine today. Based on traditional running programmes I'm going to do 1 x fartlek (swedish term for speed play) session, 1 x speed session and 1 x distance session per week. I will continue my 3.5k route for speed, add a 4+k route for fartlek and a 5k route for distance and we'll see how that goes.
I know my friends and family and people I know will say "you are pushing too hard" but....that's the only way I know. Heck how do you think I got in this position in the first place.
Every time my girlfriend (who is 14 years younger than I am) tells her friends or people that she knows about my accident they ALWAYS say "What was he doing surfing at his age." Her retort is "hang on a minute, you don't know this guy."
Excuse me....what are people OF MY AGE doing to get healthy and fit WATCHING sports on TV...c'mon.
Age is a chronological number, what difference does it make how old you are...if you see something that interests you "get off the couch and get fit enough to participate." You'll change your life forever.
That comment really cracks me up. "what is he doing surfing at his age" as they take another drag on their smoke and another sip of their beer, with Nike's that are only worn by another trip to the fridge.
The world needs more shredders...join the Crusade. LET'S GET HEALTHY.
