»When somebdy says " I'm past doing something", does he mean that he's got beyond the phase of doing it, or that his present age doesn't allow him to do it any longer»

 

It could be either. Give us context. If the man is 95, it is an age problem.

If he is only 35 , it means he just doesn't feel like it at that moment but given the right circumstances.............

 

 Obviously I am talking running 5 miles in 30 minutes here .
