Are you prepared?

Hopefully people arrange a helper when they get older, maybe someone receiving a regular wage and will take care if you have a stroke etc

I prefer the 'have lots of Thai children' approach.

And hope one of them hangs around to look after me, if I don't die a relatively quick death.

I am 76, normal weight for my 5'9" frame and up until March exercised daily (walking 10 km a day).  Non smoker and drinker.  So, why did I have a stroke  in March?

Walking 10Km/day on the flat isn't that much exercise, is probably the answer.

There's also a genetic propensity for old age as well.

 

But at 76 you need to expect death at any time.

I'm 64, cycle 20Km/day, hike in the mountains often ...... doubt I'll make 70, none of my family do.

 

Did have a pal that had strokes from age 60, Dave2 on this forum, he died age 70 in his bed.

So it's not the end for you quite yet.

10 km is a good walk for anyone, stop the nonsense. But agree that at age 76 nothing is guaranteed. Same goes for anyone at any age. 

...... about 200Kcals according to Strava.

Anything less than 1,000Kcals is hardly worth the effort IMHO.

Possibly.........

Have many friends that sustained mild injuries during exercise when they were younger. Now that they are a lot older most of them have dodgy joints.

Golfers seem particularly prone to this.

I would like to recount briefly my recent health experience.  I am 76, normal weight for my 5'9" frame and up until March exercised daily (walking 10 km a day).  Non smoker and drinker.  So, why did I have a stroke  in March? 

Yep makes you wonder why bother with any exercise, I  think some people are  just prone to it whatever. No  history of heart problems in my Family Dad dead at 86 Mother  still alive at 92

I think the 50's are a dangerous age. Any undetected defects like heart conditions, aneurysms etc. seem to hit at that age. After that, most fatal conditions develop.

How many calories do you spend doing your young beautiful wife on the side?

You know anything less than 1,000 calories you might as well stay home!

Saves another 1000 as well.lol.
