    Athletic performance in your 40s?

    60+, ride everyday, skied 167 this season.
    Today’s early ride was 2 hours, 2000 ft and about 10 miles of expert, technical terrain.
    Only guy I saw this morning, is 80.
    He was on an Emtb, but he’s a fucking legend and I wasn’t about to say shit.

    If that's all you've got you were never fit in the first place.

    pretty sure i'm not old yet, right?
    Ouch, sorry to hear it. I also had some back issues this year, including a muscle spasm that left me in bed for a day or two. Turned out a new mattress corrected things, but pretty eye opening - I wouldn't even have noticed a worn-out mattress 15 years ago.

    One thing to also consider here is proper nutrition. I used to think that I ate.pretty well until I had a nutritionist coach me through a balanced macro diet for myself and my fitness goals.

    As a result at almost 43 I feel strong and in shape as I ever have..combining this with good workout data let's me workout just enough to be in shape but not over doing it to feel fatigued.

    Not really. You're barely working at 70% capacity for a someone fit.

    John Havlicek's resting heart rate was in the low 40's and they highest they ever recorded him was 65. Ran all day, never got tired.

    Died anyways, but they had to check twice.

    Summary of road biking:
    - heiny shorts required
    - association with the Minneapolis turrorist
    - weakens bones
    - beta position relative to mtb
    - risk of death by automobile

    And average heart rate, for me, of about 110 over two to three hours, with no impact. I can't run, I have half a meniscus in the right knee.
    I have bad diabetes genes, and road biking fights off what could be the same miserable death my father and uncle had. I'm not a racer, I'm only in it for the cardio, and, in a scenic, hilly place with minimal traffic, it's an awesome way to cardio. But, mix it up.

    Yeah it is good. I have an old road bike & enjoy the pace of it. That or hiking or walking are my favorites though the latter two get 99.9% of my outside time. All the noise around maximizing this variable or optimizing that stat can be helpful in terms of tweaking process but feeling good & being above ground is where it's at. Seems to me people underestimate the importance of continuity & overstate the importance of x or y supplement or dietary variable. Missing health through all the pedantry or something like that.

    Now that I'm in full on ramble mode it's time to log off

    There's no way to know that unless you know Benny's age.

    I've lost track of the number of friends and classmates I thought were in really good physical shape yet still dropped dead since we've all turned 50.
    Go that way really REALLY fast. If something gets in your way, TURN!
