In brief: No bounce

For your age, you are at the "weekend warrior" risk group.
Stretch and hold all ankle, leg, thigh muscles for at least 1 minute each. It may be best to get a partner to help sometimes. Sometimes the stretching may seem like forever but you may need it to prevent injury. Also, hydration is very important and proper gear protection. Hope this helps.
