I am 44 and have been running for 5 years.
I have done a few half marathons ( best time was 2 hrs 15 mins ) and more 10 k races ( best time was 1 hr 08 mins ) .
I am not a natural athlete but I do try hard ie run twice a week ( one long run on a weekend with my running club and a shorter run / speed-work during the week ) and go to the gym during the week also.
My endurance improves depending on the race distance that I am training for, but I am definitely no faster or better ( it always feels just as hard as the last time ) a runner than when I did my first 10 k 5 years ago. I find this to be very frustrating and confusing given the effort that I put into healthy eating and the aforementioned exercise / training.
Is it true that some people really are’ non-responders’ ( as per a recent Horizon type documentary on TV recently ) regarding performance in sport ?
Yours, in anticipation .....
