So I Iike to keep active – thinking running/ walking/ fitness routines – but there always seems to be something wrong: a nagging injury, fresh muscle aches, an acute injury from tripping over, something that just flares up over night in a completely ‘unrelated’ part of my body.
I sometimes think I’m just wearing out and getting too old for activity – and maybe I am – but then plenty of others I know are older than me and still out and about. So I can’t give up yet!
I hope it’s that I just have to get the balance – rest, don’t over do it, listen to my body, build up slowly etc. etc. etc. – all much easier said than done. But of course the ‘underlying’ issues might be more serious, and perhaps something that just ‘rest’ wont fix. I guess I’ll have to wait and see.
But for now I often think I am wearing out! And sometimes wish that I had done more when I was ‘young’… but of course regret never fixed anything, so I just have to keep positive, cope with set backs and enjoy what I can, when I can… I guess I’m not getting any younger.
Anyone else ‘plagued’ by physical setbacks from things they would like to do? Any advice?
