As we age as endurance runners, we naturally start to slow down, lose strength and mobility. It's not a pretty sight. We peak in our 40's, then begin the gradual slide.
In my 50's, I could still lay down an good race. But after I turned 60, I faced my biggest challenge.
You see, I was a marathoner for many years, then just before I turned 50, I suffered a heart attack and had open heart surgery. I had to seriously re-think my running future. I decided life was short and I changed my focus to running trails in the mountains.
Running over 50 ultras in the next 10 years, I managed to get some age group awards, including a 2nd in the national 100K trail championships. As a result, I became sponsored by Hammer Nutrition.
But it almost killed me! And I wouldn’t recommend anyone else doing it and here’s why:
A couple of years ago, my excess hill training and crossfit training put me back into the hospital, so I had to find a better way to train.
So after months of research, I found Dr Phil Maffetone, who's proven techniques helped 1,000's of endurance athletes improve their performance by training slow and reducing hidden chronic stress. I implemented his methods and within 90 days, my aerobic max pace went from 10:30 min/mile to 8:30 min/mile.
I got faster without adding chronic stress and pain... Running was fun again!
So I took my personal program and turned it into what I call the Forever Runner Method, an 8 step plan to transform aging runners from slow and stiff to running with joy and vitality.
My passion is to help others to successfully run beyond their 50's. I want you to enjoy your favorite sport and improve your longevity at the same time.
So if you are sick and tired of getting stiff, slower and injured as you age, this is something I can help you with.
