Training & Nutrition - Grip: Wasted youth
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
This is me:
Age 16, tennis player, weight 128lbs. 10k off the couch run time: 41:00
Today, Age 39, weight 152lbs. 10k run, moderately trained: 52:00 plus change.
Never let yourself go. Even 2x week during your most trying years will prevent years of trying to play catchup.
It's time again for AYCE sushi. :D

Future - age 50 - 140lbs - 10K run 38:00 - you can do this - age is not the issue!
Yes I can. :) Ferget the past! Thanks for the positive vibes.

Further future: 61, 157 lbs. Ah, youth! At 18, I rode a century in 6:30. Today I ride a double in 12:00. A riding buddy who's 68 drops me on steep climbs. I don't know where the edges are. Haven't encountered them yet. 400k coming up on Saturday. Looking forward to it.

Yeah, and I used to run a 12.9 s 100 meters and a 26.1 200 meters. I could run a 6 minute mile with no training. I don't even think I could run a mile at any pace(beyond walking).

It's scary to think what 2-3#/yr post college will add up to at not too old an age. I'm going through tailoring/resizing a few items from a recently deceased uncle who had apparently the exact same size skeleton as me (hat, shoulders, feet, arm length...) but 60-90 extra # (over ~20 extra years)... It's freaky to picture the different kinds of volumes that can be packed onto the same frame. Anyway, gain 3#/yr from here onward and I can still catch his weight at age.
