training as we get older

The comments on the Jan H. post are fascinating. I hope to be training when I am in my seventies. Ron still takes ukemi for the whole class at 65. He is a bit slower than he used to be but still rolls and falls nicely.

This morning I am quite sore after 2 nights of good classes...my back and knees are feeling a bit stiff. Ki exercises and stretching and a little Tylenol helped.

I thought I would start a new thread about training as we age. Do you care to share your experiences here?
Thank you, Joe and Henry for talking about the need to keep training through it all.
