|Subject: ||RE: 50+ Masters Training and Racing Open Forum|
Banished from using my computer today because my wife has taken over. Hope this new format works. Been running regularly since 1976 with 4 or 5 years off due to injury; have had almost all the common ones that waylay runners. The latest being stress fractures an entry level arthritis in my knee. As most regulars know I xc ski half the year. 5K has been bandied about as a bellweather. Have not broken 16 since 1993, before that I enjoyed about a decade when I ran sub 16 pretty much every time out. Ran 16:20 as 40+ and best 50+ 2 yr ago was 17:01. Now maybe 17:30 shape but in a funk lately despite age grading well. To get back to a level I want it would take building back to 60 or 70 mpw but last year I got reinjured at 50 mpw so must be careful. 41 for the 3rd week in a row. We shall see what future weeks bring. Meanwhile I have enjoyed reading everyone's story so far.
