    Absolutely on the money. Don`t believe the Medicare ads showing old people biking up mountainsides. There`s nothing good about aging ... unless you`re incredibly deluded and believe what you read in Hallmark cards.

    Years ago I read about an aing grande dame who was being interviewd by a young journalist who asked if there were advantages to aging. She replied;

    `Perspective. A few years ago I might have seen you as an impertinent young man. Now you are an amusing boy.`

    But, yeah, grunting does get to be a feature. My cousin and her husband, on the other hand, are both in their mid-sixties and do pretty much nothing else but but cycle up mountains. Just retired and spending their time cycle-camping in Scotland, the Lakes, Iceland, Norway and god knows where else. Three nights camping, one in a hotel for weeks at atime. They take lovely photos of the Northern Lights and the Orkneys and mad Icelandic landscapes and are having a great time as far as I can tell. But that`s always been their thing, they met at a Uni cycling club 40 odd years ago.

    Me, if I`m cyclng five miles for a pub lunch by the time I`m 70 I`ll call that fair enough.

    Jake, there is one good thing about aging, the saying "Old age and treachery will always overcome youth and skill" comes to mind.

    Don`t forget once you do straighten up you have to lean against something till the headrush passes.

    Actually if you exercise regularly it`s not that bad.

    ""Old age and treachery will always overcome youth and skill" comes to mind."

    Yes, there`s that. The passing years do teach you an awful lot about life`s shortcuts and the way things REALLY work.

    I`m in my 40s and still get up the same. It`s about how you take care of yourself and your attitude.

    Started super intense workout regime, 6 days a week, a month ago. Group full of 20year olds, the first week I just died, in every freakin session. In a 5th week. today - did just fine. It only gets better from here on.
    Nice to have won the genetic lottery :-) 45 in 3 months and all good.
