[QUOTE=Cliff Miller;1260995]
when we were in mexico this year my wife and i spent a lot of time talking about what we want to do in the next few years and it really began to hit home that we are getting older and need to dial it back a bit and do some things for ourselves now [/QUOTE]

@Cliff - Could not agree more. None of us are going to live forever nor are we going to have the quality of life/ health needed to do the things we want to do. We made our decision for me to retire one night in the hot tub when we realized that 7 friends from our old ski club had died in the previous two years. Only two of them had reached their 70s. The bad news is that 2 more have departed since we made the decision last year.

"I tell my wife that lifting gives me strength to do all the stuff she wants me to!"

@Bill - That would not have worked. LOL Jan is not a big fan of the gym; she loves to get her exercise outside (cycling, hiking, skiing) so she views gym time as a necessary evil when we can't do something outside.

I think as we get older, more and more folks we know pass on. It gives me the motivation to keep WODing. I always lose the retirement discussion with my wife! ;)

Yep. That is why I work out nearly every day and try to eat healthy food. I do like tequila and good wine, though, so the lifestyle is not as healthy as it could be. ;)

Perform in teams of two, one partner working for the full 60 seconds, then resting and supporting their teammate for 60 seconds. Track scores either individually or as a team.

Another one with "rest". I didn't think it was too bad and told my partner we could have done a 3rd round. If we could go for 16Min, we could go for 24Min.:pepper:
