Older does not always mean slower

Older does not always mean slower

We cannot turn back time, but we can still get faster, stronger and healthier. 

Athletic capacity declines as we get older, but our actions largely determine the speed of that decline. Most lifestyle athletes can improve at most ages.

Older athletes can still build large endurance engines, improve efficiency and minimise the age-induced loss in power as most of us have not reached our full potential.

How to get better as an older athlete…

  • Accept the ageing process, train and race where you are, not where you were.

  • Strive to become more efficient and structured with your training.

  • Respect that recovery is essential to your performance.

  • Optimise your efficiency, training and recovery nutrition.

  • Improve your sleep.

  • Take more time to warm up for intense training or racing.

  • Train intensity regularly but not every day.

  • Use more active recovery.

  • Do strength training.

  • Respect that the process takes a little longer.
