Re: Re-entering training after knee injury

First, Ron, I'm sorry you are learning the hard way (sigh) if it's any consolation, I have been too; you all reap the "oops, don't do that"s of my life!

Greg, just want to point out one thing: it may not be lack of flexibility. Some folks, at any age, get hurt because they are hyperflexible in a joint and have not done work to strengthen the surrounding muscles. Each person is different, and within each body, joint to joint may be different.
But, yeah, it all gets harder/slower to heal as we age.
