Folks have branded us Gen Xers The Slacker Generation. We must have accomplished something, but I can’t muster the energy to research it. Let’s say my generation is a bunch of slackers. I read that a key element of fitness is rest. You work out, then rest a day to rebuild. The Greatest Generation stopped fascism; the Boomers put a man on the Moon. Two intense workouts in a row. Maybe we are slackers, but maybe we, as a species, need the rest. Gen Xers are carb loading for Gen Y’s intense workout. You’ll thank us later. Or not. Whatever.
