Just Do It,Heathy Aging, Plyometric,Harvard University

Trail conditions today compared to yesterday are like night and day. Yesterday, the trail is sloppy, puddles of water, muddy, with plenty of wet branches and wet weeds all over. On top of that it rained off and on. Today, the trail is great. Although there are wet branches and wet weeds, there is an absence of mud and water. In other words, Digger and I had a good run as the weather cooperated. Also, I didn’t have to wear a waterproof jacket and gloves like I did yesterday. Do not let the weather get in the way of  exercise and health.
It is refreshing to mention members of the Maine Masters Swim Club relay team. They include: Bob Hazzard (79), Phil Kerr (76), Bill Reeve (79), and Hans Wendel (75). They are mentioned in the May 16, 2011 issue of Sports Illustrated in the Faces in the Crowd section. These young men established New England records in the 75 and older age group in the following: 200 yard medley, 200 free, 400 medley, 400 free, and 800 free at the New England SCY  Championships at Harvard University. Way to go guys. It is important that these men are recognized for what they’re doing. More media attention is necessary to illustrate the benefits of healthy aging. The doing is important. You heard the expression “walk the walk”.
My book, soon to be published, is about the” doing”. As we know, our contemporary American culture depicts middle -agers as overweight, medicated sedentary spectators who are complacent with an inactive electronic lifestyle. It is important to defy and challenge this non-flattering perception and there is certainly a different way to view retirement and the aging process.  Sciences has found a positive correlation between passion, fitness, sports activities, and being healthier and more  fulfilled. My book is about those gratifying choices for living out this era of our lives.
A Plyometrics exercise is beneficial to both the professional and the nonprofessional athlete. For example, basketball, football, and track athletes benefit and build fast twitch muscles from these exercises. You also can improve your fast twitch muscles. Skipping, running backwards on your toes, jumping in place, jump roping etc. are just a few exercises that can be done with very little equipment. Research plyometrics and implement as part of your workout. Assess and evaluate and see what happens. Remember that Nike commercial “just do it”.
