At 61 years old I should know better

But I “came off” my horse today - didn't fall (well ok maybe I did) and injured the shoulder I recently had rebuilt through six different procedures. So I guess its back into that inefficient, expensive, time consuming medical system again tomorrow. Oh joy!

Oh no... you really gotta stop doing that !!
After my back surgery Dr. said my horse riding days were over.
I hadn’t rode in 30 yrs (his assumption).
Told me...
Golf would “just not be the same” I never really played (lol)
I asked about gardening ~ Dr. said “start slow & don’t over do.”
Little did he know I use a chisel & hammer along with a crow bar ... to dig in the hard desert ground where I live.
Long story short it’s just not worth it to not take care of yourself.
Did I listen??
Nope~I’ll probably be paying the price for as long as I live.
I hope your recovery is complete. Comes a time when we should just know better.
It sucks getting old~er but the alternative is much worse.
Best wishes

Oh boy!!! At 67, these old legs can get a little wobbly on a roof. Not a good ending to hurt yourself all over again. Good luck.

I turned 70 in Aug. and still ride my Harleys. But I probably shouldn't.
At least I shouldn't have my wife on the rear seat.
I would hate to damage the precious cargo.

I’m 73, bad knee, arthritis in back and hips. Play Pickleball for 2 hrs 3-4 times a week. Get absolutely nothing done afterward but nap. Lots of ice and Tylenol. But everyday I play I am grateful that I get too. I know if I quit, it will be nothing but recliner and tv.
One day at a time...grateful for today.
Good Luck...keep moving. It won’t be long and we can’t.

At 61 you don't bounce like you used to! Hope the injury is not too serious!

Now you understand the problem

Still recovering from my back surgery. My doc says another 4-6 months. Heck it has already been 4+ months. Isn't that enough....Pass the wine.

Teach that horse to drive!

Wife’s horse flunked out of driving school so she’s still riding. Her gaited horse is easier in the knees and back.

Some days I have to look in a mirror and remind myself - No, don't do that, hire someone. It's cheaper and less painful.
