Poster: not much speed
Subject: RE: 50 and Slowing - Masters / Seniors Input Please
apparently I'm bucking the trend here. Long time (30+ year runner), with a couple of breaks induced by injury. After coming back from a long-term injury my times have maintained or improved slightly from 45/46 to early 50s.
Using WMA scores, I was 83-84 at my peak (20s and 30s), now in my early 50s it's 85-87. So maybe I'm doing something right, or at least something that works for me.
I run 5 to 7 days a week, including some doubles; real easy on easy days; do long runs consistently; do shortened pace and speed workouts; and do a lot of tempo running. Not a whole lot different than in the old days, but found that less intensity leaves more for race day, as well as longevity.
