Although my wife Frances and I are very active I may have mistakenly portrayed us as extremely active types. Whats different about us is Frances is a long distance type, she's done full marathons, long X/C events and her true love is open water swimming, I've followed her in a kayak in some distance events. She competes but it isn't a hard core pursuit, she's content to finish vs. working to medal. Actually my concern with her is a serious crash while riding or skiing, there's a bit of recklessness in her blood.
I'm the opposite, always went for the fast and quick sports. I played hockey until a complex cervical spine surgery in 2014 ended that activity and bike riding and led me to a trike. I x/c ski but do not compete. I do not run.
Ironically we both have very low heart rates, Fran's so low she had a pacemaker installed five years ago to keep her from passing out occasionally when relaxed. Mine is near that condition but not quite there per our shared cardiologist.
