I started this thread 4 years ago....

With hindsight I do not know why I was worried that turing 40 would mean that I would slow down and not run PBs again. I ran Lonodn yesterday aged 44 and PB by 13s with a time of 2:59:39 - so each year since 2005 has been faster than the previous year. Next year I turn V45 and now am really up to PB one more time....

So if you are worried that your best days are behind you when reaching 'middle aged', I can counter that and say (marathon) life really does begin at 40.

Another update on my on going crusade against the effects of aging and related slow down in times. Yesterday I ran Abingdon marathon in 2:55:26 so a 4min PB. It now seems completey farcial that aged 39 I thought I was going to slow down and not ever get under 3 hours.

Time to focus on VLM2013 when I will race as v45 - can't wait!
