This is an unfortunate truth that I am now realizing at 40.@Chee-to just read the thread. I hope that your progress continues. I had a string of injuries in my early 30's but now at 36 I feel as fit and healthy as I have in a long time. It took a lot of work and time though and I still have to stay up on all the maintenance exercises and stretches. I can't just surf hard every day and spend evenings on the couch and expect everything to keep working, apparently.
welcome to my world!This is an unfortunate truth that I am now realizing at 40.
I'm lucky I didn't go so far down the rabbit hole that it was going to be a major challenge to bounce back.
Diet and exercise are top priorities for me now as preventative maintenance, whereas I never had to think about either of those things before.
