Thanks so much for the uplifting reply. I plan to enter some all-comers track meets next summer. I am curious about your training methods. In my youth, we would run lots of miles, run tempo or fartlek sessions and intervals twice a week. As a Masters athlete, I have followed the same training approach but reduced my weekly mileage. Instead, I put more emphasis on quality interval sessions and tempo runs. I think that this is/was a good compromise between endurance and speed and was working until my left hip became a problem. At this point, I am reevaluating my training strategy and am interested in other mid-distance athletes approaches.
Thanks again for your reply.
