If you recall, a few weeks back I did a four mile trek after which my calves were seriously in pain for 3-4 days. Since I had to cancel my workout with Trisha for tomorrow because of a meeting and a later event, I decided I should tackle that four mile trek once again.
So I did.
I may pay for it later, but it seems that this was easier than before. I didn’t time it, but it seemed fast to me. The lack of food for the day did not seem to hamper anything, so I think rescheduling Trisha for Thursdays when necessary will not be a problem.
I’m getting used to fasting, although I still think about food during the day. The awkwardness of reaching for it is lessening. I’ll be continuing this into Phase II, so the habit has been established.
For a bit of discussion, this article “Does human life span really have a limit?” discusses the odds of dying as you reach certain age ranges. Obviously, there is a lot of variability, but it asserts that once you reach the age of 105, your expected remaining life is about 1.5 years, and that expectation stays with you until age 109.
How is this useful? Taking care of yourself is important. People who are frail at age 70 are not likely to last until age 90. If you are mountain climbing and doing marathons at age 70, your expected lifetime is much higher.
And that is one of the primary tenets of Tim vs. Aging, to demonstrate that aging can be controlled, and perhaps even reversed. It is up to you to make the choice.
