    Its a long time since I spent time listening to the elite
    riders talking about what their coaches told them.

    Anyway, for me 220 - 61 = 161, and damned if I can get my heart to go
    anywhere
    near 161!

    But I have known other older veteran riders who did very fast TTs and
    they all did manage
    faster HR than I ever could. I couldn't even stay up with them when
    riding close behind
    on a flat road. Some were 10 years old than me, 50, and they'd get 1:02
    for 40km,
    and I'd only get 1:08 maybe.
    One would do 11 mins for 8k, I'd do 12:30.
    Neil Stephens was on holiday from Europe and did a 9:30, much faster
    than the club's seniors,
    but you'd expect that from a pro.
    But one guy who was 10 years older and a faster time trialist than I
    ever was hated being in bunch
    races with me and the others; he couldn't handle the changes in pace and
    attacks.
    Then of course there were others who barely stayed with the bunch in
    race, but at the
    end they'd easily sprint past everyone.
    Cyclists come in all shapes and sizes and with much different
    physiologies.

    But I have only seen about 2 veterans still riding out of the 50 or so I
    saw regularly
    some 16 years ago.
    Some of the club veterans now racing were seniors 16 years ago, and
    they are now as fast I once was, and if i rode with my ghost of 42 I
    couldn't
    keep up with myself.

    The older ya get, tha betta ya woz!

    Patrick Turner.

    Naah, this is my old (as in his age) GP came out with this last visit.
    Specialists wants to double my meds, but GP can not see the reason. I
    worked out it is my specialist that gives me high blood pressure (but
    still under 220-age) and the GP relaxes me (almost 220-2xage {:).

    Given that I chased up on some other recent "medical news" the specialist
    was spruiking on about and found out that this new technique he wants to
    try actually increased the risk of people dying, I've decided that the
    best thing is to reduce my BP by findng a new specialist.

    Personally, if you're swinging your leg over a bicycle and going for
    a ride daily, then you're probably doing yourself much god.
