When I returned to running after my 22-year hiatus, I suffered injury after injury, the worst being torn meniscus in both knees (one just after the first one healed). I found a great PT who has helped me strengthen my core and hips, which resolved my knee problems but requires consistent attention. I broke my foot (non-running injury requiring surgery) early in the Covid lockdown, which was tough because I couldn’t run or play golf. I ended up with a sore shoulder from trying to work out on crutches.
