Ok, so I'm just realizing that there is really no play in my life, and hasn't been for years. When the weather's decent I like playing badminton, walking, being out doors, exploring new areas, hiking and backpacking. But as for fun physical play, other than rolling around with my innumerable cats on occasion, I got....nuthin'. It's suddenly striking me how out of balance and unhappy this feels.
What do you other fair to middling aged dudes (I'm insert number between 35 and 50 here) do for fun when your body says keep away from high-impact sports because it doesn't want your joints to implode on themselves? Running for frisbees is great when my hemorrhoid problem isn't acting up. I tried the P90X thing and it's fun, but I torqued my foot doing it so am wary to try it again. This sounds fun - a friend wants to go skydiving (plummeting?) but I can't pin him down on a day yet. Any grown-up play circles out there?
