  1. Thanks to everyone for your encouragement, messages of support, and the card and bottle today. They are much appreciated. The main conclusion from my analysis of my own performance over the years is that you can restrict speed decline to 2% p.a. into the 70s. You can also improve again after a significant injury, but it is unlikely that you will get back to your previous speed level: it is a negative ratchet effect. So, please all stay injury-free in 2020! It is definitely worth slowing up for a while rather than risk tearing a ham string. Best wishes, Trevor.
