Uniyun, if your fragile manhood is threatened by the thought of a 50 year old woman running 7 minute pace, we fully understand, but you might want ot back up your assertion with some facts, because I have run with a couple of elite athlete women who had no trouble handling sub-7 minute pace. In fact, two weeks ago I did a long weekend run with a 51 year old woman who qualified for a couple of marathon O-trials, but who I would call sub-elite. We ran 6:34 pace for the long tempo effort.

Moron #2: Nobody said Slaney couldn't run 7 minute pace at age 50. It would not be an easy slow jog was the point.
Slaney is probably the most talented american woman ever. If she didn't put on weight, I wouldn't be surprised that she could run 7 minute pace without much effort at 50.
And you would be a fool. Slaney was able to run 7 minute pace without much effort in her prime when she could run about 4:15 for a mile. However, at age 50, when she could not run a 5:15 mile, 7 minute pace was a bit of an effort.
