Build Your Aging Training Base in Your 50s and It Will Be There for Your 70s, 80s and Beyond

Once your body learns something, even when neglected for years, it remembers. It remembers mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually. I found this while reapplying water running to my ongoing peripheral arterial disease (PAD) marathon and Ironman training, to spare my feet on long training runs.

Water running is a great tool for endurance run conditioning later in life.

Water running is tough, but I found that the investment I’d made a couple of years ago paid off. The first run lasted eight minutes, and I was beat. Within three weeks I was back to my old comfortable one hour water run.

My base was there, waiting for me.

It’s an investment worth making, my friends.

Wishing you happy trails,
