Not as long as it does at 57! I also include golf in my balanced exercise plan that includes running and trail walking. I’ve also had lower back problems probably caused by strimming the garden but it seems to be the golf that causes it to flare up so I’m limiting it to nine holes once a week.I am moderately fit, play golf and old mans football. Anyhoo, decided to up the ante and started running again, did a mile and a half yesterday and a mile and a half this morning, not at a particularly fast pace. Christ, I was chin strapped.My lower back is going crazy, with what I presume is stiffness, how long to recover from the stiffness at 53 years old ?
Will use tomorrow as a rest day, supposed to be playing golf on Friday, no chance that is happening at present.
