This is a NO CAN'T ZONE...easily defeated need not proceed!
Certainly not everyone who might read this blog is going to be like minded, that's fine, go do your your thing. This blog is about what you CAN also do, IF you want to. (I also enjoy the occasional creative writing exercise, but thats neither here nor there.) I usually spend 60-90 minutes a day doing some combination of running, swimming, cycling, lifting and/or stretching. I'm also known to use an elliptical machine from time to time. Nothing super human about that. I do it, and you can too.
Granted, I seem to possess a certain capacity for finishing races with above average results, but again...you can to...if you want to.
The raw facts is that from age 38 to age 40 I got faster, stronger, leaner, and healthier than I ever dreamed possible when I started this whole fitness bit. That is what the human body is capable of when it is conditioned properly. You CAN run, you CAN bike, you CAN swim, you CAN get strong, you CAN get flexible, you CAN eat right, you CAN lose weight, and you CAN get healthy. If you do enough of it then eventually you CAN win your age group in a race or even win the whole thing! (If you wanted to that is)
So in conclusion, while I usually refrain from the profane, I do just want to say that if you happen to read this blog and think some weak ass lame shit like "Wow, that guy sure is athletic, but I can't do those things, so he shouldn't talk down on unhealthy eating, sedentary lifestyles, and obesity so much.", then carry that weak ass lame shit on to some other source of reading material.
