Kay Glynn, on cusp of 65, shares 11th annual Christmas greeting

For the 11th year, masters track star Kay Glynn shares her inimitable Christmas greetings photo — showing off her strength and flexibility at once. Also her amazing lack of aging. Kay writes: “Looking forward to turning 65 in a few weeks!” — as well as competing at indoor hep champs in Kenosha and indoor nationals in Ladover. “I updated my second hip resurfacing… a few months ago at this YouTube video. and added an acrobatic Christmas video from last week Also, I had a great experience telling some stories on a podcast with Thomas Matt where I was actually encouraged to acknowledge a few people. Ken, I even got to mention your website at 20 minutes into the interview!” Aw shucks, Kay. Thanks for thinking of me!

    A-maz-in! We have 20-somethings in our gym, who can’t match Kay!

    What kind of workouts do you do? Nutrition tips? How has your training changed as you have changed age-groups.

    Thanks guys.

    Tips? First, smile. Then find something physical that you enjoy doing and do it every day! Add music for motivation.

    And, Frank, my workouts vary so much from sprinting and jumping to weight training to cartwheeling! My main core workouts come from doing lots of acrobatics which is just plain fun for me but not something everyone can do. Check out YouTube for core exercises. So much to do–so little time!

    An eating tip that works for me is eating small amounts every 2-3 hours. Basically, no fried foods or white flour. My diet is plant based but includes lean beef and fish. (I know that sounds counterintuitive.) I struggle each day to cut back on sugar. Although I cheat on my “diet” I feel better with the changes I’ve made so far.

    Training, eating, aging? Never give up. There’ll be ups and downs, but just keep on keepin’ on. Appreciate the opportunity to wake up each day to have another chance to get it right!

    Thanks to Ken and the people on this website for keeping me motivated. 🙂

    Kay, you ever think about writing a sports/nutrition book? You should!
