I was pretty much riveted to my laptop screen from 9 to 4 as the keys to alleviating the pain, stiffness, and poor balance in my body were virtually handed to me and everybody else watching the presentation.
As tempted as I am during moments of weakness, I’m learning to veer away from all self sabotaging thoughts of the strength and flexibility training I still need to do to achieve my desired level of fitness. Instead, I choose to enjoy the steady progress of my body’s functionality and take each WOD (Work Out Daily) as it comes. Lately, I’m feeling more flexibility in those challenging squats and more strength in my forearms when doing ring pulls. I think I’m even standing taller!
I took a long and hard look at myself in the mirror and saw that all the work I had done so diligently in the 80s in building a strong core has disappeared. In my mind’s eye I thought I still had some remnants left in the deep muscle tissue but hey, who am I kidding. And something started happening to me in my late 50s.
