Subject: RE: Basic speed training for older runners?
It gets worse when you get past fifty. Brace yourself.
I've found the shorter alactic sprints are particularly hard on the body...the results are usually felt a day or two later. I have sciatica and PF. Both can come back with a vengeance doing shorter sprints. Tempo runs, not sprint-type workouts are much less hard on the body. You must be wise in this regard.
Another option: toss the watch. You're not 20, so every 5 years or so after 40 you'd be advised to start your seasons' PR goals anew by adding a little time or just running by feel...listen to your body, if you want to keep running.
Lose the ego, too. It can cause more trouble than anything else.
I'd suggest Messrs. Atkins and Whitlock could teach us a lot on dealing with the large numbers of calendar pages some of us have behind us.
