I’m a male and 56 years old now. I start running 2 years and half years ago because of my high blood pressure.
After 7 days everyday one mile jog, My blood pressure became normal. Quick!
After 3 month, I tried 5k. It was 25 min 40 sec. I was a little disappointed.I bought three books about how to running. Next year, practice 800m x 3 once a week for 3 month then I run 5k for 22 min. Better! I love running now.
Then I followed the running practice schedule for marathon from the books for 4 month. 1000m x 3, 20k pace run, 30k LSD, plus weight training. Then run the first time marathon at Baystate and I got BQ. Time was 3 h 38 min. BQ time was 3h40min fro my age. But this year, I just missed deadline for Boston marathon registration . Sad.
I had only 2 weeks for practice before Baystate. I was jogging 30k once a week after last year Baystate marathon. But my weight was 20 lb havier and much weaker muscle. Then I took a week rest before race. 3h 42.5 min. Sad. l failed. 2.5 min late.
I have to try again next year. Baystate course is nice almost flat course. Good for speed. Perfect for BQ. Running same course every year, I can learn many things. I just notice I need to change my form a lot. I will beat 3.5 sub next year. Beat 8 min per mile.

Anyway I practice again 1000m x 5, 20k,30k for 2 week.
