Worried that I might stop following him on crazy adventures, my friend Béat Koszinowski gave me the New York Times bestseller book Younger Next Year for my birthday last year.  At the time, my workout regimen was fairly inconsistent, with frequent rest days, but I was constantly getting dropped on extended skiing or biking outings.  After reading the book, I began reducing my recovery days and increasing my protein and vegetable intake, which has resulted in more energy and endurance with less pain.

No, I am not going to ever be competing with Tom Brady at a high level, but I am enjoying what I love to do more.  If you are over the age of 45, I encourage you to read the book.  It doesn’t matter whether your objective is prolonging the number of years you can be active or simply increasing your quality of life.  It is an easy read, but enough technical information about decay to keep you motivated.
