Is doing this sport worth the risk if im not going to get anywhere? watch

    • Thread Starter

    Im female in my 30’s and have always been good at physical activity, have had strength and a bit of speed etc (unfortunately no stamina though) even though im only 5ft, though not enough to be very good. I just to do hurdles in competition but have never trained regularly. Im thinking of starting training again just to be the best i can at them maybe compete in a few club competitions. I may as well as ive not had kids lol. I could just practice them on my own as no one else at my athletic club does them. Part of me is worried about getting injured though i worry that if I train my bestat them I’l tear my acl etc then you need surgery and pretty much have problems for life. Is it worth the risk if Im not really going to get anywhere or win many competitions? I feel ive wasted my life a bit though by not doing much i want to achieve something even if its just to be good at something : /

    honestly you could tear your ACL falling funny or going for a jog... not every hurdler will tear it... if you love the sport then do it
