Work and family obligations (and life-in-general) can pull us away from attending to ourselves.
At age 45+, it’s critical to reengage!
lderBeast can help with free practical advice and insipiration. And with personal coaching to help even more.
It’s important to keep physically challenging ourselves as we age. That’s why OlderBeast feature things like push-up challenges, exhortations to increase your weekly workout frequency, and calls to keep on running uphill.
But the name of the game is to do it thoughtfully, man — in a way we can sustain for years and hopefully decades. And on some days that calls for a game-time decision to do an EASY workout.
There’s the planned easy workout, to recover from intense effort yesterday or get ready to go hard tomorrow. But here, I want to talk about something different…a last-minute call to just do something “light” today.
Maybe a shorter and/or slower run. Or just some light body weight exercises and stretching. Or some lower-intensity cardio on a machine and then a short core routine.
The idea of switching to an easier workout is really about our relationship with motivation: having more than one response to call on when we feel unmotivated.
