I was thinking more along the lines of "Massive Coronary" (i.e. actual NNDK damage if you really want to specific damage rules). Ageing a year itself is still an undefined thing in HERO. Why would being 91 be any worse than 90?

 

Something like "Physical Complication: Old Age" would be enough. Or "Susceptability: 1d6 STUN and BODY from Pushing powers".

Hmmm...  Maybe the aging would be the special effect for the NND damage...  Call it System Shock...  When his metabolism comes back to normal, he makes a CON roll, and takes NND damage from the System Shock if he fails...

If their aging is accelerating faster than they are then it will get away from them and they won't be able to age any more.

 

If I have completely misunderstood the question SOMEHOW, just add more points to Psychological Complication: Opinionated bigot. That way you get more points every time you run fast.  Until you fall and break your hip, anyway.
