RE: How do you feel at 35, 45, 55, 65???? Getting slower inevitable????
of course it is going to get worse. in your 40s injuries will happen for no reason; healing will become glacial; your "speed" will go - which soon won't be a problem because you will be afraid to do short reps because of injury. Finally the longer distance times will begin to slide - slowly at first, then a crash as you become slower than you thought you would ever be. Staying light won't guarantee slowing the decline but packing on the pounds will sure speed it up. And staying light isn't easy with a 40+ metabolism.

And yet, even after almost 40 years racing i enjoy it more than ever. All about perspective.
