Old age

The body is definitely failing. I have logged lots of miles but really just starting the marathon training and the old Achilles problem is starting back up. Very discouraging. I managed 4 miles without a problem today but I am feeling discouraged with the whole thing! I certainly can't and won't quit running, nor will I give up my desire to run another marathon. Guess I'll train smart and hope for the best....peace!

Sorry to hear this. Train for distance first and forget about speed. Give yourself enough rest and recovery. Keep it going!

I know, sorry that the achilles is giving you grief again. Good luck - hopefully this won't sideline you too much!

I feel your pain and am right there with you. Just last week I was thinking about what I would still like to accomplish in running (break 45:00 in a 10K, do another half marathon in sub-1:50:00) and found myself wondering if, at 57 years old, it's reasonable for me to maintain those goals. For now, I'm just pushing on.
