My definition of endurance.

Endurance. That’s what I’m aiming for. As I age. Best to rule out speed and quickness.  That’s for young whippersnappers. Old coots like me.  Need endurance in our search for the Holy Grail.  And for survival. We plod along. More like a turtle than a hare.  I don’t go 7-minute miles anymore. Settling for 4 miles an hour.  But I keep going and going and going.   No let up. If some day it’s necessary to slacken that pace, so be it. As long as I stay in perpetual motion. I picture myself. As a svelte and handsome 114-year-old completing a marathon. Averaging a 30-minute mile.  Yes. Take that. As my definition of old age endurance. --Jim

One of these days. Soon. I’ll get on a treadmill in my exercise class. And walk a half marathon (13.2 miles). In less than four hours. I know. I know. That’s not very speedy. But hey. Ain’t all that bad. For an old coot. My aim. Is to build up my endurance.  And become the last man standing. --Jim

It's lonely at the top, Jim. Why not take others with you so you can all be standing ?
