I refuse to let my wretched disease control me and what I eat.

My doctor and I have a really good understanding of each other. He realizes that my lifestyle is just as important to me as my health. I like food, ask anyone that knows me and they can tell you how much I can pack away if I'm really hungry. Doc and I have setup a great system for me to manage my voracious appetite and still be healthy.

Although my days as a beanpole are indeed numbered.

After 10 minutes or so I feel like a knife has been pushed in my lower spine and I have to come in off the wire. I recently got a magic marine harness and it is a vast improvement on old sailcloth type material harnesses I had but the strain is still on my hips and lower back. Its probably only a matter of adjusting it right but what feels good on the sand doesn't feel good on the wire after 10 minutes. I am just back on the water trying out my 14 foot Alpha Omega cat.

I think "growing old gracefully" equates to going to seed. Hitting middle age means a lot of physiological changes including slowing metabolism. That�s where Eat Less, Move More kicks in.

Of course, the down side of all the exercise is orthopedic surgeons everywhere licking their lips envisioning for all the money they�ll make from baby boomer joint replacements. Ya just can�t win!!

I was looking for the Target Heart Rate Calculator and found this. I must have known it was coming. I had one replaced six weeks ago and will probably wait until next year for the other.

If anyone's contemplating a full joint replacement, get in shape before the surgery.

At a minimum, walk a few miles every day. That will help with healing and flexibility. The two goals are straightening your leg to zero degrees and getting your heal to your butt.

Work on upper body strength. The worst is trying to get up off the toilet. You'll need something to pull on or set up a system with your main blocks.

Find out what the post surgery exercises are before surgery and start doing them right after surgery. They hurt like hell but you'll be glad you did.

About 2 years ago my Doc told me i have Type 2 Diabetes, So before that I was always working out but never took it serious ! in 2015 I bought myself a Fat Bike I use to do Mountain Biking so i decided to get back in it at that time I was 250lbs I am really into Technical stuff, I might ride 3 times a week. 10 miles in the woods doesn't seem like a lot but it kills you. I have to bring food with me to snack on so my sugar doesn't drop to far being all alone most of the time, I rather Die Sailing not in the woods LOL! So far I am down to 198lbs I need 20 more i think. When i am not riding I do Beachbody workouts! have you ever heard of Tony Horton P90X, or Shawn T Insanity workouts? I will mix these up into one nice workout but still working on Pull ups that is one hard thing but it might come in handy if i ever fall of my boat! LOL I am 47 now i figured i better get this sh*T into a Life style now before i get older .. Non of it is easy I have change my eating I eat less and do Cardio like a rock star!

Oops, .. sorry.
I overlooked the Reynolds 21 notification.

By the way your vid and the connected other vids opened a whole new other cat world for me.
Interesting and seductive!

Holy Thread Resurrection Batman! This thread was started 11 years ago!!!

But I second the bike riding thing, both mountain (or off road) and road biking are great ways to stay in shape...however...it can kill you! Most of the guys I ride with have had much worse crashes on their mountain bikes in the woods than on their road bikes, going twice as fast. Tree's don't move and they always win the 'right of way' argument.

My bike club just lost one 57 yr. old gal to a heart attack, the day after she rode 50 miles in the heat. She was not one of our stronger riders to begin with, she was a steady, regular rider, but that day she rode with the A group and they were going fast, she was hanging on at the back, didn't do any pulling, but still, the next day, adios.

I constantly have to remind myself that I'm only riding to stay in shape, I'm not in the Tour, and never will be. Going fast around corners is fun, no doubt, and dodging cars and trees will get your heart rate up, but dying ain't much of a living.

As Dirty Harry said, "A man's got to know his limitations."

If you are just getting into cycling, go find a good bike shop and ask them where/when the local bike club meets, see if they have an A, B and/or C group ride, start in the C group and work your way up. My club has a "Friendly Friday" ride every Friday for newbies, most clubs have something similar, that's where you want to start.

Riding with a group is better for you, and safer, for several reasons;

1. If you do go down, or even if you just get a flat, they'll be there to help you. (our last bike club President crashed while waving to a friend and hitting a pot hole at the same time, and broke her pelvis, hip and coxex, needed an ambulance, one other rider called 911 for her as she was unable to move)

2. Cars will 'see and avoid' a big group (but be more pissed off) than they will see a solo rider, and with today's Texting Drivers, that's a big problem. Solo, you are invisible to most cars, so be sure you stay way off to the side of the white line when you can, and NEVER assume they see you.

3. You will ride longer, and harder, with the group than you would ever ride alone, you can draft when you are tired, you can pull when you are strong, and you will want to 'Represent' so you will push harder than you will alone.

4. You will make new friends and learn a lot from them.

I have found that there are many similar type A (and AA, and even AAA) people in both sailboat racing and bike riding, (and flying airplanes too!) so you sailors will feel right at home with the bike guys! Oh, and several in my Bike Club love to drink beer too, just like sailors, (and pilots) so there's that....

or you can do that spin class crap.... I still have a hard time exercising indoors with HVAC... guess I'm used to being in the 100% humidity..


But Timbo's training for the NZL team cyclor spot, so.... get used to peddling like crazy and not going anywhere

A jog in beach sand is a hell of a workout, too...

Planks and all your core strength training will serve you well on any boat with a trapeze or hiking straps

Group rides are great. There's not a lot of roadies here on Maui but I can usually find a group of tourists to ride with. They let me suck wheel when needed and I show them the backroads that are fun to ride.

The Xterra triathlon series had a stopover in Hawaii, and the trail ride looked spectacular in terms of visual backdrop. of course, it didn't look very easy to pedal through.... smile

OK, Ok...I haven't seen him in several (probably should say "many") years since then but FYI, he was headed steadily north of 180 last time I saw him. ;-).
