RE: Be inspired: Meet Andy Ward: The Brit had a 30:20 age pb from age 25 to 44. Now he's sub 30:00
Maybe with the correct training and continued motivation plus good health, one does not slow down as much as you think with age. At the very top level guys like Geb, Lagat or Garhib have somehow kept motivated and relatively injury free.

But Ward's running career is a very inspirational story, especially when you take into account that he also works as a gardener and is raising a family. As you say, it is difficult from the article to understand his training fully. From what is written I guess that he is doing a lot of "fast steady" running like Lydiard or Ron Clarke but he is controlling his effort with a heart rate monitor to avoid going too intensely and way beyond his lactate threshold. "Intense" sessions at 10k pace and faster seem to be less of a priority.
