In brief: Modify your routine

Running, as with most strenuous sports, is in the domain of youth.
Old age starts at about age 27. Not everybody gets away with strenuous and demanding exercises such as running, as they get older. Unfortunately. Running can be physically punishing to the joints. Consider alternating with bicycling, swimming, strenuous yoga and other activities that don't have the same demands as running.
