Re: Question for the guys over 35 who've been playing their whole lives ...
I should clarify that I truly want to know how this transition mentally and emotionally effects you? I've never really played tennis but am thinking of taking it up, but I've seen athletic performance deterioration in other areas, specifically in the joints and, if I can be honest, it absolutely sucks! I don't emotionally feel less of a man, but I am questioning who do I become if I can no longer be good at the things I used to be good at. I don't feel like I'm getting terribly older but it's frustrating when my body can't/won't perform to previous levels.
I'm researching some solutions to regain some quickness and joint mobility, and was asking if I'm not the only one experiencing this to see if what I'm finding is worth taking my time to share.
I appreciate your honest comments.
