Lately I have been doing my very slow jog - can you say 10-11 minute mile? and concidentally or not, my lower back has been very achy for 3 weeks now. I am taking it easy in an attempt to put off a visit to the orthopedist since I am averse to unnecessary x-rays.
Now that I have read this alarming news, I think I will stick to Zumba class with the 70+ year olds. Much safer, plus I will look young. Not only will I be surrounded by older people, thereby making me look young by default, but I will be avoiding the harsh pounding that could lead to turkey neck.
This is a photo of me after I ran several laps around the track at the finale of VC's Track and Field season last year. I hope to look the same 5 years from now, by avoiding the track.
*Oh, I am tickled to see that the nose to the left is a girl who is a local recordholder as well as winning her age group in the triathalon in London a few months ago. It is kind of like the Tortoise and The Hare, me being the Hare.
