I had abdominal surgery 8 weeks ago and couldn't even stand for long periods of time until week 4. At week 5 we went to Zion National Park and we were averaging almost 5 miles a day for the 7 days we were there.


Ouch. Sorry to hear about your surgery but it sounds like you are on the mend and putting me to shame with all the walking you have been doing recently.
When my parents were in their 50's, they looked and acted old. They drank and smoked a lot. No one jogged. As a matter of fact, no one walked anywhere other than going from the house to the car in the driveway.
I have neighbors who are in their 80's who put me to shame. They are a very hardy group here in New England!
