Imo living long life is overrated, 65-70 is enough...

How old are you? That sounds like something someone in their twenties would say, including myself at that age.
Past 40 (I'm 42) 60 suddenly doesn't seem invisible on the horizon anymore (although that's still around half of proper adulthood left before old age, so not a total disaster). And when I'm 60 I sure as hell expect that I would very much like to have another 15-20 decent to good years, unless I've been very unlucky in the health department.
More difficult to predict how I might feel at 80.

It's only now that my father has passed 70 that he's actually starting to look old to me, but he's still looking pretty good, and has a happy life with wife, dogs, grandkids and plenty of energy for long walks and various other more or less active hobbies.
Barring unfortunate events I certainly plan to do my very best to be in a similar positive situation in 30 years. And ideally with even better fitness level.

As far as my current age goes - definitely more wrinkles visible the last few years (but not bad for my age). Started losing my hair in my 20s so nothing new there (shave or buzz cut). More and more frequent minor health issues (digestion, joints etc.). More muscle mass than I've carried at any point in my life, even if I don't have as much functional strength as 20 years ago. Aiming to get down to 10-12% body fat for the summer (I've been around 14-18% most of my adult life, on the low end of that now).
