Thanks for the comments about unfitness and comebacks. In the past I've had two long lay-offs with knee operations so I'm not too troubled by the lack of running. When I eventually get back to some proper runs it will take me 10 to 12 weeks to restore some decent fitness.
Did another 2.7 miles run/walk this afternoon. Ran the flat and downhill bits and walked the uphill sections. Just call me idle.
MrsJJ isn't totally incapacitated and can manage occasional slow strolls and even a light exercise routine if she's up to it. She's always been an avid reader and there's nothing that prevents that hobby continuing. She just begun re-reading Middlemarch which she last read about 50 years ago and is finding a different slant to it that she hadn't appreciated.
Good to hear from you. Stick around because your experience will be very welcome and we have some quick folks on here who know a lot about coping with the ageing process.
I'm not sure we want people's credentials spread all over the thread.
It would be great to hear from Chouette, Sharkie, K2 etc. on here if they have the time.
