So, I've just returned from a couple of days out in sunny L.A, on a work project.
Spent two days talking to weird and wonderful people - all part of the job and task at hand, however through that, I've returned feeling totally unfit, and...yes, old.
Most of the women we spoke to were in their mid-late 20's. Now, i'm under no illusion that L.A and hollywood is the place of extremes, with most of the women working out every day, and drinking as much water as their tiny tummies would take, but still.
Talking to them made me realize that the last 12 months (since my hip pain started) has seen a pretty significant decline in my overall fitness. Me and hubby used to take strolls, nay 'power walks' around our neighborhood, but I just can't hack it anymore. 2 hours of any type of walking and I'm done.
Anyhow, the final straw being when I departed the aircraft last night in terminal B (Atlanta Hartsfield). I'd flown back first class, so was off the airplane lightning fast, however with a pretty impressive limp setting in fast - everybody was flying past me even those almost 40 years my senior - to the point where I was last to make it to the train and may as well have sat at the back of the plane!
Oh well...things will improve. Of that i'm sure.
I'm off to Pilates tomorrow morning to try and kick-start some hip-friendly exercise.
