I used to jump over parking meters when I was in my 20's. Just put your hands on the top of it and push yourself over. No, I never missd and hurt myself. I would not even TRY that today...........

Like a lot of others here - joint problems. Last year a broken ankle, a slightly torn/pulled knee ligament in October, now a torn thumb ligament that may need surgery. Maybe its time to slow down a bit

I'm afraid to try a somersault any more. Last time I tried it, I could hear things creaking in my neck, and the sense of disorientation I had was, well, quite disorientating!

I was inspired to try this by my husband, who shows off his ability to somersault every night into bed (he launches himself into the air via the bed frame and then flips in the air and lands on the bed). Yeah, he's all mine!

If and whenever ER Forum members have a group meet-and-greet, I can imagine the room filled with the aroma of Bengay ...

I'm a runner --- I used to run 40 miles a week on a rest week in my 20's-mid-30's. Now I am 44 and do like a day or two of rest between runs, or else my legs are just stiff and sore all the time. What is mentally tough is I do a race, and in my mind I am still competitive and expect to be among the top finshers overall, but can't do it.

Living in a 55+ community, you can see your future today. I have seen that mobility is critical. I am 51 and DH is 60. It's quite interesting to look into the future and see what you need to work on before it is too late.
