I don’t remember getting old.

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
First day on the mountain and my body is telling me that the exercise program is not working. My ankles hurt my calves are cramping, both sides of the hips are talking to me and my shoulders and arms are telling me to glide farther and push less. I don’t remember getting old.

30 is a rough age.

Hey Ray,
Come ski with me when I get my shoulder healed!! We'll figure out how old we are.:

Here's a thought for you, Ryel: There's always beer to drink at the end of the day.

You need to drink before skiing Ryel.
When are you going to be at Meadows again, I'd like to get my ass kicked.

There's a price for getting older. But the benefits outweigh the costs by a long shot. I'm 48. I'd love my 21 year old athlete's body, but I wouldn't want anything to do with that 21 year old brain.

About the time I turned thirty I realized I'd been wrong about everything. When I turned forty I realized I'd been wrong about everything twice. Maybe I know better now than to think I know too much. I put a lot less pressure on myself and I know that not a hell of a lot matters, anyway.

I just brought my 51 year old body down off of the mountain today and I can relate. I want to go farther and do more than my legs will support. However, it's nice that all of that ancient equipment we used to ski on happened when I was young. I don't think I could handle wood skis and leather lace-up boots again.

If any ass gets kicked it will be by the mountain...I ain't up to it! But I will drop a line before I go up. Yesterday was all for the kids.
