    Haha aye. I think it’s more the chronic pain, fatigue and mental health perspectives that I was thinking of.

    Of all the old people I know,(by old i mean 70+) the ones that walk with a stick, struggle physically or can’t do this and that are the ones that have led sedentary lifestyles.

    Kind of related I suppose.

    Nonsense, some impairments are very real and very permanent. Let a blind person drive you round the M25. You know they can see if they try just a bit harder don’t you?

    Mostly true, though my father in law (73 today) has worn out most of his joints from working like a dog, he’s still working full time though & doing up a house!

    Facebook has been great… I see pictures of all the people I grew up with, all the guys I went drinking / parting with, old work colleagues and not many of them found a sport like mountain biking, many are over weight, ill, coming down with problems… most have led sedenatary lives, TV lives and are now getting older and infirmer.

    Is there a relationship between the two? Is there any science behind it or am i just lucky with my genes? I have no idea but it sort of supports the original comment.

    I do think we are more “robust” than many of us realise and “body” image perception seems to have changed for the worse IMO over recent years.

    I dunno.

    This weekend I’ve treated my body like it is invincible and now I feel extremely fragile.

    I treat my relatively fragile and damaged body like it isn’t at all, and it’s not helping.

    Depends on your definition of “rehabilitation” if it means taking 6 months off after a muscle strain then you are probably not really cut out for competitive sport. 😀

    glupton 1976 maybe it’s time to stop treating your mind as if it’s fragile and damaged although it could be too late. 🙂

    Imagine you’ve stiffed it and are laid out on a slab naked.
    After the coroner has a little giggle at your withered genitals, he takes a long and appraising look over your unblemished, un-scarred and un-impacted body and says
    “Well, he didn’t use that much did he?”

    No thanks. I want him to shake his head and wonder how it carried on functioning.

    your unblemished, un-scarred and un-impacted body

    My coroner will look at my body, puzzled, and think “have I already done this one?”

    Got a few scars here and there 🙂

    The human body is both the strongest and weakest thing- at the same time.
    See- people performing huge feats of strength when necessary to save a loved ones life, OR bang your head and die.

    What I do know for certain is this particular damaged body is not ready to give up having fun/taking chances yet.

    long time dead.

    -read this back before posting and it does sound a bit walt Disney but nevertheless TRUE. (God bless america) :mrgreen:

    samuri – I want him to shake his head and wonder how it carried on functioning.

    That may happen to me, but I think I should have a tattoo stating that I was careless/unlucky rather than X-treeem!!!!!

    I read this statement on Twitter earlier and thought that it was bang on the money.

    What do you think?

    Not a fact silly, just talking form personal experience. YMMV.

    I’m not sure of the point being made here. I have a chronic pain problem owing to a disc injury that happened 25 years ago and now the disc has totally disappeared. I have continued with sports and exercise the whole time and these days I have to grit my teeth through the pain on long bike rides. I now have to avoid running, weights and various other activities to stop it worsening. I already MTFU so how does the OP apply to someone like me?

    Could it be that they have sedenatary life styles because of the health problems not vice versa

    nearly every bloke I have played rugby with over the years, which Is quite a few, has knackered knee joints and walks with a slight limp.
    both my knees have been under the surgeons knife as testament to a life of activity.

    If you treat your body like it’s invincible and smoke, eat and drink like an idiot, that’s a good route to making it fragile!

    never smoked……… 😳

    I have just been told by the doctors that they can do no more for my ankle. I asked if walking on rough ground will cause more damage and they said no. The best I have managed since last September when I snapped my foot off is three hours of standing.

    This weekend I am hosting the bbb and expect to be walking around for 12-16 hours a day for three days.

    I will tell you how good I feel after that.
