Im approaching 40 and have only really got into running in the last 2 years. Im gradually getting faster which im very pleased with.
What ive noticed is that it seems like all the fast older runners in the club i run with were sporty and runners when they were younger ie teenagers. They then had some time out in their 20s and have come back to running in their 30s or 40s. Their bodies must have some kind of muscle memory because they find it easier to get very fast again.
I didnt do sport as a child, im still scarred by memories of being picked last in PE!
Just wondering if there are any stories out there of people who found running later in life and started out doing a half marathon in 2 hours but have managed to get their time down to say sub 1h40m ?
