I used to be a power runner on hills but now I can be running up a slight incline that I would not have even noticed in the old days and it's like Mesabi Ave (not sure if I spelled that right or not).
Same thing with wind. I can run into a slight wind and it feels like it's slowing me down like a hurricane would.
Dagnabit. I hate this. There has to be a shot that would make you young again...I don't mean a PED...I just mean its frustrating...not claiming that is some brilliant observation...but knowing aging is frustrating does not really help much...it still IS.
I have to be able to get more speed back on the track...it's hard when I cannot run 7 min pace right now for 1 lap.
