I have been a competitive middle distance runner since high school and have been competing as a Masters athlete for many years (I’m 68). Although I’ve run my share of marathons and road races, competing on the track is my preference. I had a THR of my left hip in May 2022 and am now back to hiking, cycling, and some running (pls don’t tell my surgeon 😉). I am curious if anyone has been successful getting back into spikes and on the track post surgery. I race 800m, 1500m, mile, 3k’s, and XC.
Another question… over the years, I have probably run tens of thousands of quarters (i.e., lots of left hand turns.) Perhaps it is coincidental, but it was my left hip that “wore out”. Have there been any reports that investigated hip wear out and track athletes?
Any other milers out there?
