RE: How do you feel at 35, 45, 55, 65???? Getting slower inevitable????
35 is no problem. Maybe not quite as much energy and fire as when you were 35, but being more mature, and smart/consistent with training can more than make up for that. I am pushing 45. Turning 40 was nothing. Running was great. Each year since, I have been able to hold on, but have to be careful about over training and having dead legs. Easy days are rrrreeeaaaalllllllyyy easy. Biggest issue gets to be motivation. Why put on the hurt just so you can run 30 sec slower than last year at the local 1/2 marathon? Why not cruise it in, add 15-20 sec to your finishing time and not feel like crap the next day?

Friends who have hit 55 are pretty much done. They are just happy to still be out there and feeling good now and then. Speed drops off precipitously each year.
