    I can’t imagine Frazz whining about anything.

    I like Frazz’s assessment of probable future events.

    I don’t understand why modern athletes are so reckless today. In the 1980s, there were far fewer accidents and damage from over-training.
    .
    When I recently had to have my shoulder worked on (from doing too many military presses and the doc thinking it a good idea to cut my thyroid in half, so that it froze as well as frayed…) most of the injuries at the physical therapy outfit were kids being pushed tooooo hard.
    .
    Half of kids in sports today will go to the emergency room this year. 14% will have a brain injury.
    .
    I bicycled long distance for almost 20 years and never suffered an injury other than the occasional minor scrape. (I have a feeling it came from obeying the traffic laws, keeping an eye out for hazards, and remembering that there were others on the road who had rights, too. None of those three things have been characteristics of the typical biker since the early 1980s.)

    Richard, yeah, if I’m honest, that’s the way I feel too. Run? With nobody chasing you?

    I hope he isn’t training here in Georgia. We are having 100+ degree weather down here.

    We got 90+ up here in Michigan.

    65 & raining here in England – thermals may be needed for the Olympics!

    Maybe nobody now thinks of sports as being fun, and are too hooked on performance goals, even if that does lead to injuries?

    And what the heck is Frazz doing?

    Really want to disagree with you about today’s cyclists, but I can’t. And I’m one of them.

    It’s a good thing you’re perfect – otherwise you would be insufferable.

    appears to be planting something.

    I work in a high school and am absolutely amazed at the number of kids walking around with knee braces or splints or other appliances to deal with damaged joints (ACLs seem to be particularly popular of late). And virtually all of them are related to training for competitive sports, and being pushed (or pushing themselves) too hard.
    .
    I am not sure where this ultra-competitive approach to what used to be called “play” came from, but it’s wrecking the whole concept of sport. Not to mention a lot of joints and tendons. I wonder how many of these high-school kids I see with knee braces are going to need new knees before I do… and I’m pushing 60 with a bulldozer…

    It’s very challenging to fit exercise into my day with 108º weather, but fortunately, there is an indoor running track fairly close by.

    Gator & Bdaysuit: Aren’t you glad global warming is just a myth dreamed up by environmentalists to save the planet. We lost a red oak, pine, and a very productive crabapple to last summer’s drought. If it is a day or a week, it is weather; if it is several years, it is climate.

    If you don’t run when nobody’s chasing you, you’ll have a hard time getting away when they are.
