    Oooh, do you not receive PMs when banned either? I know you can't send, but I was under the impression you could still get them.

    That's about the first valid point in this entire thread about getting old!

    I was thinking about getting old just today. I think the 5's are much worse than the 0's.

    25 really is that age when your muscle give up wave a little white flag and suddenly you're a fat bastard. Hitting 20 is nothing.

    Then 35 is the point when you start aching and not being able to do thinks that you think you should be any more. Hitting 30 though is really of no significance, just an excuse for a bit party.

    Heh. I certainly agree with your assessment for 35. I ache far more after running/working out since hitting that age now. Stretching is becoming very importany.

    I was really fit until we had kids at 33 and thats when lardiness became more of an issue for me. After 30 I did notice it was easier to develop a slight gut over xmas, but it always went really quickly when I got back in the gym or running and cycling.

    I went to seed a bit during the first year and a half after having our son and am now back in reasonably decent shape.

    I can run about as well as before, shoulders,arms and chest are all well defined. BMI and fat %age are all normal, but I still seem to hold a slight belt of fat around my waist. As a younger man, that'd have been long gone. There's just not enough time to exercise as much as I used too and I'm not about to totally cut out beer & crisps!

    :(

    Hopefully next year will get rid of it.

    35 has certainly been a very sucky year for me.

    Normal beer binges and crap food blowouts hang around on my waist far longer and bigger than before, and I'm constantly getting injured - to the point where I've now quit playing football.

    Hitting 30 was the end of youth for sure. I was indestructible up till then.

    Read my post above!

    As soon as I hit 30, it was a massive dip.

    Harder to stay fit, harder to shift weight, harder to avoid injuries.
    Like you, I felt I'd be fit forever when I was 28. I was jumping off phone boxes and vaulting road fences like no ones business.

    yeah for the first time in my life have actually started to think im getting on a bit and actually thinking that the fun days will be getting fewer and fewer in the next few years.
    I went to a night club the other day and everyone must have been 25 and under and that's being generous, they all might have been younger.
    I still feel very young though and can still go out all night etc, just the people around me are so much younger in general.

    Not like it's a step at 30 either. Slides on down from tgere or thereabouts.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    I'm lucky that I was a fat unfit fuck up until I was about 25. Consequently at every significant anniversary so far I now feel better than I did ten years before. 40's probably going to hurt though :(

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    Similar to me, I was a massively unfit fat knacker right up until my mid 30's. Started running, working out etc and at 40 I pretty much feel healthier than ever before. Saying that, currently suffering with stress fractures in both legs, probably wouldn't have happened twenty years ago...

    Stress fractures? You can break bones just from running? O_0

    Well, running and idiocy really. Upped my mileage big-time and figured the resulting inability to walk without a shitload of pain was the norm for that sort of distance...

    Didn't help that nothing showed up on an x-ray, so I kept going. Took an MRI to spot them and at that point, was told to stop for a few months or risk crippling myself when my shins snap!

    I've been in constant pain for the last 15 years or more, so I've felt prematurely old for a long time now. You're all a bunch of pussies.

    Not many things get better with age, but sex is definitely one of them. Until it just stops working I spose.

    Anyone who thinks that you suddenly "get fat" at 25 is obviously eating too much and not doing enough exercise.

    The advantages of having been a weighty youth are shining through now. Its not that difficult to shift weight you just have to commit to diet and exercise instead of talking about how hard it is while drinking a bottle of coke and eating a share bag of crisps.

    I've been a lazy, effort-avoiding slob all my life so I've not noticed the drop-off at all. Well, I drink loads less these days. That's all.

    Trouble will come if I ever think of doing something though.

    I don't think anyone has said that at all.

    If 1985 is when you were born, then we'll see how you feel about that statement some time between 2015-2020.  ;-)

    To run around a field constanty for 90 minutes they wouldn't call it football, it would be a half marathon. Anyway sorry, yeah, my bad. The seasons started again hasn't it. That Carroll's a real athlete isn't he, fine specimen etc etc.
