As you know, I have been an overexerciser in the past, and I'm confronting aging in a rather difficult way. Suddenly, plyometrics made me throw out my back. Shoveling is giving me tennis elbow. My standing desk makes my lower back ache, even though it relieves my upper back pain. I have to modify certain yoga poses because they hurt in a way that feels dangerous. It totally sucks. But I'm with you -- I keep reframing and telling myself doing anything is better than doing nothing, and I want to be mobile and active well into my senior years, so suck it up, right? You can do it!! But do take your inhaler. No need to end up in the ER!
