ageing and exercise


Life is like walking into a cold lake, it starts shallow, and you enjoy the feel of water on your feet. The sensations you feel are pleasant and walking barefoot is always refreshing. But as you progress and it gets harder to walk, water is resisting your pace; more effort is needed if you want to proceed. The water may not feel so good anymore – it is more tiring, and you need to be cautious where you step. If water is freezing, it’s more difficult to breathe, and you have no choice but to stay calm, breath until you get to the point you can’t reach the bottom of the lake and you have to start the swim.
