Curious how many have considered the differences between the two?
There are many things that we do to be fit that take from our health, such as overtraining, wearing out joints, or wrecking a bike.
Also, there are many things we do for your health that doesn't increase our fitness. A prime example would be tooth/gum care.
I'm guessing that the older one gets, the more health is a concern. I'm certainly getting there. I've competed at some level my entire life and have been pretty fortunate to not get seriously injured. But I have had my near misses. This came to mind when my bookkeepers boyfriend wrecked in a mountain bike race, hit and tree and pushed his femur through his hip socket. It made me evaluate what level I want to participate at.
Does one's health suffer at some point to become "fit" in today's standard? Is there a balance or is that a cop-out?
