So, here is my thought. Once a person hits a certain age, say 40ish, you should not try and keep up with the younger generations (20ish). For example – I love soccer. I love to watch soccer…coach soccer, and play soccer. The problem – my knees hate to play soccer.
What do I do – play soccer and re-injure my knee.
I rest it.
I rest it some more.
I head back out last night for some play against the young guys, that after a 4 month layover. What happens – the knee holds up great but i get hit in the chest (red card if you ask me) – and now I have bruised ribs. Recovery time – 3 to 4 weeks.
No contact sports for me.
It is no fun getting older.
