I mountain bike with a 67 year old guy occasionally, I'm 38 and in
pretty good shape. He can kick my ass on some climbs. My 66 year old
father-in-law is climbing Hew Hampshire's Mt. Monodnock (sp?) Tuesday.
This should be a lesson to all of us 20, 30, and 40 somethings that
physical fitness is like retirement savings, the earlier you start,
the bigger benefit you get.
I am NOT going to let a miter gauge wear me out when I'm only in my
50's and 60's. <G>
I never said it wore me out; I just get a little bored with the weight
sometimes. I lifted over 600 punds one time so I don't think I am a
weakling. Then again----! I have come to appreciate a 7 lb. rifle
when hunting instead of a a 14 lb. one. When loading a grand or baby
grand piano I also appreciate a regular one. also a contrcators saw
over a cabinet saw when putting in back of pickup. Hell, I am not weak
but am probably getting a little lazy. The whole idea is keeping an
exact angle and not in lasting forever.
