Running hard at 60

Aka "The older athlete's mantra: higher, faster, stronger"..

Dug this link up after reading the article in todays National Post.

Staying a Step Ahead of Aging
It's from Gina Kolata's Personal Best Column in the New York Times.

She cites research saying that as we age we can keep a high level of fitness by continuing to do hard (e.g. lactic threshold) workouts.

So the good news is we can stay in shape, stay fast and competitive. The bad news is that it's going to continue to take lots of work and hurt :-)
