Fitness is freedom (#reblog)

Fitness is freedom.  I wonder how many of us have ever considered this sage bit of philosophizing.  I hadn’t.  As I whizzed down an aisle in our local supermarket a week or so ago, following the COVID arrows in the right direction in order to get to my intended target of the far end of […]

Fitness is freedom

This Saturday it’s our guest post day but we don’t have a guest. Instead we’re reblogging a post from another WordPress blog about the idea of fitness as freedom, especially in your senior years.

  1. Couldn’t agree more. I began getting serious about fitness when I was in my late 40s. Later this year I will turn 70 – while on a mostly solo bike ride across the U.S.A. We just spent a few days (now that we are all vaccinated!!!) with younger cousins who hike every day. We climbed and walked briskly several miles each day – very hilly terrain – and I was left feeling I had missed my exercise. It was fun, but not at all challenging. Had I been able to do this stuff when I was younger, it probably wouldn’t please me quite as much. But now, I can honestly say that I feel better – stronger, less achy – than I did in my mid-thirties. I have yet to reconsider any activity because of age-related physical issues. I know that the active life I lead gets credit for that. And, of course, I now know most of the activity is really fun!
