We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Mrs. BD swam her daily laps, I didn't because my Greater Trochanteric Pain Syndrome - caused by my enthusiastic workout efforts - makes swimming too painful. If you workout hard, you will get aches and pains. Anyway, I did my cardio early this morning and am still stumbling around. I splashed in the salt water for a while, and worked on growing some skin cancers from the beneficial solar radiation. I dislike swimming in fresh water anyway. Grew up in salt water, even a salt water pool.
I overheard 2 languages from my beach chair. One was French and the other was Cute American Teen Girl (which is closely-related to High Gay Dialect).
Meanwhile, NYC daughter and boyfriend went out for a long sail with our pup on board. They said the pup enjoyed it until they grounded the keel on a rock. It was insensitive of me, later, to remind them that I have all of the charts. Always consult a chart in unfamiliar waters. Sheesh.
"Repetitive movements involving your hip area, such as EXCESSIVE running or walking."
I hate to be a wise ass - or sound insensitive - but people over the age of 50 (especially if they are starting on a new program) NEED rest days, i.e. cardio on your days off may be problematic.
Here's the thing. Unless our "easy" days are carefully scripted, most of us have a tendency to get competitive with ourselves and push too much transforming easy days into something harder than easy and not allowing ourselves adequate recovery.
If it makes you feel any better, I suffered the same malady years ago when I re-started my training program. Not uncommon in Type A personalities. Best of luck with your recovery.
