Working to the Oldies

Sitting at my desk moving in my seat listening to the oldies. Nothing like it. Right now on the radio is Bachman Turner Overdrive Taking Care of Business. How many times have I wished so bad that our YOGA instructor (I fondly call the YOGA Monster) would play some Led Zepplin Whole Lotta Love. Or even some Stairway to Heaven for the corpse pose. This morning on the way to work it was John Fred & his Playboys Judy in Disguise. I always thought the guy was saying "Judy in the Sky." There is nothing like reminiscing through old music. Yuck! I hate that word old, because it IS the music that makes us feel young!

Athletes Over 50

Do you know any? I certainly do, and there is total respect!!!! Some of you understand what I am saying when I mention it begins to hurt when you roll over in bed, put your feet on the floor, and even perform stretching in Yoga. In my mind I am still in my 20's, but my bones and body say otherwise. What's up with that?? Good news is that I can still perform, and I bet you can too. I was thinking about the song I heard this morning by Toby Keith -- "I ain't as good as I once was, but I am as good once as I ever was." Well Baby, I am good a few times!!! HA. I researched Athletes Over 50, and it made my day. Let's pay some respect to these awesome individuals today. If you are over 50, you'll particularly appreciate this article.

Spin, Spin, Spin - not moving?

DO YOU RIDE THE SPIN BIKE? I am a newbie I have to admit. I have tried spinning numerous times over the last 10 years or so, but I have been so turned off for various reasons. Feels like you're going to have a heart attack when you first start out is my #1. My #2 is sometimes it hurts your crotch (need I say more). #3 - so many knobs and adjustments. Well, today my seat literally fell down -- twice right in a row. Talk about a shock and a very loud sound -- HA. You rack that baby back up and climb back on. I am up to 20-25 minutes on a very easy pace while seated. I still do not join the class, but I do SPIN every Tuesday before the class starts. I think I just need to build up so I can join in. DO YOU SPIN?? Sounds like a very good thing to do. I researched the benefits a bit and came across a wonderful website with the top ten benefits of spinning. Climb up on that spin bike - benefits!

How Hard is Too Hard?

Huuum - before you get too excited, my question is how hard is too hard when you exercise over 50? Every day when I am working out at the gym, I think about this. Of course, I naturally try the very same hard core exercises and moves that I have always done; sort of being cruel in my method of madness. Then today in a burpee session and breathing extra hard, I had to wonder how hard is too hard. This article helps put into perspective how fit men and women over fifty still have their groove going on but should still listen to our bodies. Training Over 50 from NBC
My New Book
YES - this is WHAT competition OVER 50 looks like!
