RE: How do you feel at 35, 45, 55, 65???? Getting slower inevitable????
I've got nothing to compare with from youth, because I only started running in my mid-40s. But I'll be 54 next month and I'm still getting faster each year. I got a new PR of 17:19 in a 5K last week, which is nothing special but decent enough for my age. I expect to continue getting faster for maybe another year or two, but who knows?

I get the impression that many people kind of give up a bit as they get older. They assume they're going to slow down, so they end up doing so, as a self-fulfilling prophesy.
