How much do I need to cut back on workouts as I get older?

Longer Rest

As we reach middle age, it takes longer to recover from injuries and hard workouts. You may want to run every other day, instead of every day, or take two days between workouts instead of one. Be realistic about your exercise. You can keep the quality of your workouts high--just cut the quantity or frequency.
