Picked this quote up on a bike list frequented by (mostly) guys fitting roughly my age profile (> 50):

The more one allows for aging, the faster one slips into decrepitude

Keep fighting it...

Since aging up earlier this year, I've posted masters PBs in SCY 200 & 500 free, 200 & 400 IM, & 200 breast; LCM 100 & 200 free; and SCY, LCM, and SCM 100 & 200 back. I'm having a good year!

I'm convinced that better training methods make you faster faster than age makes you slower. YMMV.

Congratulations, Swimosaur! :applaud: Watching you swim has been inspiring, especially when I see those time drops!
