Hi, I have been running competitively for 30 years, ( i am now 64, lady) my besy years were my 40,s, i had pb,s 5 miles ( 30 m. 05 sec) 10k ( 38.50),
10 miles (64.50). My favourite running is x-country, i have had various titles in the South of England and hampshire. I slowed down in my 50,s, but still performed well in my age group. I have recently started running in the UK park runs, after a break from competing( 5 years). Obviously the park runs are undulating and off road, but i was well above average in my age group, those runs were from April to July (best time 27.52). Sorry to be going on, but i need you all to realise i am not a new runner. For the last month, everytime i go out for a run, my legs feel absolutely shattered and i feel i am hardly moving. I have had a couple of leg massages, but problem is still there. I walk my dogs at least 5-6 miles every day, but i have always done that. I have rested for 3-4 days at a stretch but when i return to a run its though i have not rested at all. Has this happened to anyone else in their 60,s???? I don,t want to give up yet, i run 3-4 times a week.
