Wowwwwww what is this beast made of??? look at the WR he owns: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ed_Whitlock#World_age_group_records_set_by_Ed_Whitlock

His 85+ times, they are all faster than my PRs, but if i train hard for a few months i can beat them.
His 80-85? maybe, with a good year of training. probably not but maybe.
His 75-79 though... 5:40 mile , sub 20m 5k , sub 40m 10k. I think i am unable to achieve that, no matter what i do. Incredible!!!!
woot

dude look at this Whitlock's form at like 85+

if I live to that age .. i want to be moving like that (or better - marathon training might be too much, should probably limit it to halfs, dno..).
