I have been watching people run since the 60's and can't remember ever seeing a smile on their faces. Some times with biking i do. At edging in on 50 i started doing hill sprints 100+yards for 10 rounds on a 45+ degree hill. 2X a week. Started doing it 3X a week and started slowing down as i wasn't recovering that quick. In my 60's now and i have not done 1000 yards of sprinting for a while and 2x a week about the most i do and can still recover along with everything else i do.

That’s why I do conditioning, not cardio. Hammer swings, tire flips, sled drags, hill sprints, bike intervals. Keeps me lean, is much more fun, and actually benefits my lifting and improves recovery

I agree that it helps to keep you lean, and it is more fun but do you really think it improves recovery? I've heard that those really exhausting conditioning workouts cut into your recovery and should often be treated as another day of lifting (instead of aiding with recovery).

Regarding my slow @$$ 10-11 mi/min cardio, I don't think it helps my recovery, but I don't find it hindering it either.

Consistent cardio is the key, if you lift weights, I'd focus on moderate/high-intensity steady-state (because you already get the interval effect from weight lifting), if not, I'd do interval-style HIIT cardio.
