This year is the 40th anniversary of my first joining an adult
acrobatics troupe, and in the intervening years I have done a lot of
very physically demanding activities, and so stayed very fit and agile.
I first learnt trapeze when I was 50, and had to do some very intense
stretching exercises to get my flexibility back again. One of the
exercises I did to stretch the tendons in the backs of my legs, was to
do 100 touch-my-toes very fast. This left me walking very strangely for
a couple of days afterwards! ;-)
