Age is no bar­rier

Trail Running (UK) - - Warm- Up -

Braini­acs at Ge­or­gia State Univer­sity have con­firmed what we run­ners have long sus­pected: run­ners aged be­tween 24-34 are in their prime. Per­for­mance de­clines from 120-150 sec­onds per marathon ev­ery year from 35, with fe­male run­ners de­clin­ing more rapidly than men. All is not lost, though; strength and con­di­tion­ing can help you reverse these ef­fects, and reg­u­lar ex­er­cise can still lower blood pres­sure and blood choles­terol, and en­hance your psy­cho­log­i­cal well-be­ing.
