T.G.I.Fun

I can honestly say that the running, spinning, weight training, and Extreme classes are all fun but they take a toll on this old body!

When Friday finally rolls around, I can't wait to get a day to sleep in and enjoy doing nothing physical. But alas, that doesn't happen.

Since we have TNT group training on Saturday, I have only one day out of seven to awaken without an alarm clock.

I'm constantly reminded that our generation is far more active than our parent's generation, but at what cost? When will my addiction to endorphins end? I'm one of the last of a group of runners that started over 25 years ago. I'm the elder statesman in too many of the exercise classes that I attend.

Just as the professional athlete says, 'when it no longer fun, I'll hang up my shoes, bike, gloves....'

So, thank God it's Fun.........

I'm with you, brother! I always feel a little beat up by Friday, and even though the alarm is set for work, I am glad to have workout free day! Good luck tomorrow with training tomorrow. Art

I'm one of those senior citizens too in my group. It motivates me to want to run like when I was young, and at the same time I don't feel so guilty when I can't keep up anymore. TGIF it is...still!!!

I hope that 25 or 30 years from now I'm still just as active as I am now, but even now, I like my rest when I get it!

More active than your parents' generation, but at what cost? Hopefully you'll be able to live a long, happy and healthy life!!

And yeah...it is Wednesday and I am officially pooped. And that was after taking Monday off! I can't always be Super Girl I guess!!
