Wow.Hi Midlife crisis. I had a new pig tissue valve in 2011 (71 age) I was a top Australian Masters distance runner. I still did 66min for 10km at 77age! (2017) I found I was minutes slower per 1km than before my operation. I was told it is because I'm on 'statins' for high cholesterol ! They give muscle weakness. finish Melbourne,Australia 10km 2017. At present - got blood clots in lungs! Will recover.
Heck yes. I'm a cyclist and after my 2nd, really had low stamina issues when riding. A couple things:Anyone else experienced this???
I wouldn't worry about crashing a bike while on warfarin. Lots of people on this forum ride bikes and eat rat poison He needs a helmet but nowadays that's common. You might want to counsel him to wear long pants and sleeves in case he falls, but that still isn't really necessary. Riding a bike can be safer that what happens in gym class (e.g. getting kicked in the shins on purpose during soccer, elbowed in the face in basketball, etc.)He’s just a little chunky right now (I am sure a growth spurt and puberty are about to hit and will help) and want to find a good activity for him. Walking and swimming may be the best bet. The crashing in a bike scenario in coumadin makes me steer away from that. His cardiologist is not a fan of falling. . Thank you for that thought, he probably doesn’t like it because it is hard at first and even if he got good at it, it still may not be his thing. The school PE class grades the kids in their time improvement when running a mile. Just one, but he hates it.
all wise words. You can still train, consider Aikido. I did that till a motorcycle neck injury made tumbles difficult (read hurt my neck frequently)...
I have put a restrictions on my effort though... once my heart rate hits 160, I walk until it’s back down to 120.
for me I’ve been working more on focusing on exercise for health. I try to forget where I was athletically and focus on where I’m going. We’ve got nothing to prove, right?
I totally agree. I'm really interested in Paleolithic history (hence my username). Hunter gatherers in the paleolithic era hunted mammoths to near extinction, that despite the small human population. At the time when cave paintings were done at Lascaux and other caves in the Dordogne, around 17,000 years ago, this was going on - people were such efficient hunters back then. Many, many animals became extinct due to mankind's hunting and due to an ice age - ice age due to the normal variations in climate that happen. During the first 1,000 years AD Europe was much hotter, vines for wine grew easily in England, then the weather got colder, so cold infact that the Thames river froze over in winter for several years. And now it's getting warmer.I don't think this generation (boomers?) can take full responsibility for messing up the world.
