    Yes, confidence is an important element, but I was wondering whether some light weight training might help. As someone who is erm...also definitely advancing in my own years, I'm aware that muscle tone, etc, can slacken off as we inexorably shuffle our way towards the door marked 'exit' ( ) Weight training helps maintain our proprioception and general balance and, supposedly, helps us to catch ourselves, even unconsciously, before we list too far from the vertical and catch ourselves before we hit the dirt if we do stumble!

    Have a speedy recovery.
    Thanks - appreciate the support from everyone on here.

    Weights are something I've not really used but I have considered including them in my training of late especially as I've had to give up climbing/bouldering which I guess filled that gap before.
    I already need to do about 30 minutes of daily physio which keeps my core in shape and strengthens those areas which these days, are sadly waning!
    So I'll need to think through how I balance that with any additional weight training but definitely worth considering.

    No need for weights :-

    Just utilise your body weight/imagination and the gym that nature provides us with and train where ever and whenever you want to, for me there is nothing like a spur of the moment al fresco workout to break up a walk or run.

    Hope all goes well for you.
