Don't worry about winning, just enjoy the ride

Here's an interesting article from the Health Journal of the Wall Street Journal.

The contention is that in order to enjoy your fitness as you get past 50, you need to let go of the idea of winning or even competing, and enjoy the continuation of participation. It's an interesting one.

For many, the idea of sport without competing is unthinkable, but we share the opinion that the pleasure of not having to stop doing all the things that you love doing is on its own enough of a reason to make the effort that is required to stay in shape - alongside the pleasure of doing them, of course.

You just have to be clever about how you work out, to get the most out of it.
