I'm thinking of dropping my gym membership. I like the club, but I only use the pool - I love to swim. The problem is that my body is betraying me. Joint pain is getting worse instead of better. I have always gone by the "let the pain be your guide" method of setting my limits. If swimming makes pain, then swimming isn't good. ... also, walking isn't good (different joints hurt when walking).
At this point the only thing that doesn't hurt is riding my bike, yoga, and muscle work. All of this I can do at home and skip the annual gym membership fee.
Getting old isn't for sissies!!!
It makes me sad.
