RE: How do you feel at 35, 45, 55, 65???? Getting slower inevitable????
I ran well until about a year ago, when I turned 33, especially at longer distances. I found that I could run the same times over longer distances with much less training (60 mpw vs. 90 mpw for the marathon).
Then, right when I turned 33 I noticed a big drop off. I think a lot of it may be related to desire because I've been running hard for a long time and decided to focus more on my career, but when I started running less the injuries started. Now my achilles, knees, and IT band are constantly sore and I feel like I'm in my 50s when I run.
In sum, I think the drop off can hit at any time, but a lot of it is mental and related to your desire.
