While I'm not able to run this week because of the cut on my foot I can't help to think about the shape I would like to be in and be training for right now.
The best shape I've ever been in was from 1996 – 1998. This was also when I ran all my best times for the various distances we run.
Finishing a 50km in 04:54 - Skinny me!
Now I am 50 years old and that makes getting into and staying in that shape much harder. I’m sure I can get there or almost there but it will never be the same as it was when I was in my prime.
56km Two Oceans in 05:37 - Skinny me!
Yes, there was actually a time when I was not a back of the pack runner. :)
Marathon in 03:49 - Skinny me!
