This just happened today.
I ordered inline skates.
Asphalt is soft right?
I am 41 years old and I am going to take up skating. On a hard surface. With wheels. That move.
I actually used to inline skate in my 20’s. I was hot stuff skating for miles and even doing some tricks like jumping over fallen garbage cans and parking bumpers. It was great exercise and I really enjoyed it.
20 years later I am still in great shape but things have changed. Body parts have settled. Coordination has slowly degenerated.
But I am up for the challenge! I endured childbirth, I probably won’t even notice a few falls on the street….right?
When it comes to getting active, there really aren’t any rules and each person is different. What motivates and excites one person, doesn’t interest another. Physical limitations come into play as well. We are all different and while some people wouldn’t in a million years get back on inline skates in their 40’s, some of us look forward to a new activity.
But everyone can follow this mantra when it comes to getting active:
