Summer 2018 one of the young football lads wanted to do a gym session so he came out to the house and we did a session together
He would do some gym work but not be a "gym rat" like you or I So for my amusement I added in some Bulgarian Split Squats
Knowing full well that in his little innocence he had no idea what was coming the next day or 2
He kept pace rightly and was well fit to lift respectable weights
The next evening we had footie training and I felt a little stiff but nothing major
I noticed he wasn't training so asked him what's up
"I'm hardly fit to fudging walk after that session last night never mind train,
me legs are in bits!"
I had a little LOL to myself
this lad is about 10 years younger than me
Nostalgia is a great thing and we love to add a good bit extra to our stories from days of yore
A story from a night out gets a little bit added so it sounds like a MEENTAAAL night
Sporting stories are always great as you listen to people talk about a game like it was a Roman warrior battle in the coliseum Even though you're thinking to yourself I remember that game It was dirt
Moral of the story??
Not all is lost just because we move on in age and we shouldn't listen to the nonsense we tell ourselves or other people tell us
Some things change of course for the worse and we might slow down here or there but some things also change for the better (experience & knowledge are just things you can't put a price on)
and we weren't the BEASTS in our 20's that we like to tell ourselves.
I was stiff plenty of times from workouts then and had many desperate hangovers, just like now
So it's never to late to get after it and make changes for the better
That's the good news
