The Perks of Being Over 50

Snagged from this website:

1. Kidnappers are not very interested in you.
2. In a hostage situation, you are likely to be released first.
3. No one expects you to run -- anywhere.
4. People call at 9 p.m. and ask, "Did I wake you?"
5. People no longer view you as a hypochondriac.
6. There is nothing left to learn the hard way.
7. Things you buy now won't wear out.
8. You can eat dinner at 4 p.m.
9. You can live without sex (though not without glasses).
10. You enjoy hearing about other people's operations.
11. You get into heated arguments about pension plans.
12. You have a party and the neighbors don't even realize it.
13. You no longer think of speed limits as a challenge.
14. You quit trying to hold your stomach in, no matter who walks into the room.
15. You sing along with elevator music.
16. Your eyes won't get much worse.
17. Your investment in health insurance is finally beginning to pay off.
18. Your joints are more accurate meteorologists than the National Weather Service.
19. Your secrets are safe with your friends because they can't remember them, either.
20. Your supply of brain cells is finally down to a manageable size.

Edward, how long have you been doing pushups? You just didn't start one day doing 100 of them. Way to go, buddy. Double thumbs up!

I started my workout today as I never have before: with 100 pushups followed by 10 pullups. I've done more of each before, but never in a combination like this. I say this not to boast, but because I'm grateful for what a great gifts our bodies are. I didn't and couldn't do this before, but can now, at age 52.

Comment by Edward Warden on October 3, 2014 at 4:05pm

Henry,

Yes, 100 in one set.  I've done it six times in the last two weeks, including one set of 101.

Comment by Henry H. on September 28, 2014 at 7:06pm

100 in one set? 

Comment by Edward Warden on September 28, 2014 at 7:00pm

I'm 52, and I've worked my way up to 100 pushups [101 last Wednesday].  Part of me wonders, "Now what?" but my pullups could use some work, and I've been wanting to get back in the pool, so it may be a good time for that. 

Comment by Tim on September 22, 2014 at 5:39am

Henry and Stagger, the water's fine here. Glad you're embracing the 50. Welcome.

Comment by Henry H. on September 20, 2014 at 8:31am

@Native Son: LOL, will you be by post-50 mentor in curmudgeonliness?

Comment by Native Son on September 19, 2014 at 10:45pm

Durned punk kids.  Get off my lawn!

Comment by Carl Monster on September 19, 2014 at 10:34am
