RE: How do you feel at 35, 45, 55, 65???? Getting slower inevitable????
An interesting thread. It has been many years since I ran or even jogged two days in a row. As I aged (now 78) my goals and interests evolved until I still enjoy running/jogging/walking but the purposes have changed completely. One theory I have never given up is that one needs 40 to 60 minutes of cardiovascular, i.e. run/jog or walking, EVERY day. Anything else is not as effective. There have been several studies that indicated that walking daily is the best exercise for the heart. So as you age and approach 70 it is likely that competing is on the back burner and cardiovascular fitness is more important. And I suggest that you stay away from the marathon after age 50.
