I am also recovering from a debilitating physical occurrence. Two years on prednisone fighting Poly Myalgia Rheumatica has left me somewhat weak muscled. I'll be eighty in another year, and, I and, while I've slowed up, I ain't giving up. Just beginning to exercise a bit, and I hope to be back in my Seda Revenge in short order.
Old is nothing more than a state of mind.
Go Kayak Kid!!!
Not only will you satisfy yourselves by being on the water doing what you love, but you also influence the rest of us.
I have a few titanium parts and borrowed bone in my back along with plenty of arthritis (thanks to motorcross and a number of adrenaline driven hobbies in my younger days).
I've got no intentions of whining in my last days about all the things I wish I'd done, but rather smiling and saying I wish i could do it one more time. So yes, I still ride dirt bikes once a year when I go to Colorado. Last month i climbed to 13,ooo feet near Silverton Mountain on a bike, and took a couple of spills along the way. I was really disappointed that we had to cancel our whitewater kayak trip due to shuttle issues, but maybe better luck next year.
I second the phrase, "while I've slowed up, I ain't given up".
I'm still playing hard at 51, I just hope i can still kayak when I'm 70 or 80.
