Here you go Alexander, I asked coach Ernie Clark from Ashland university this question and he gave me permission to repost here.
"I Don't have any articles or science on this, just experience and knowledge from past clinics. From my experience in coaching football, basketball, and track I have NOT noticed any significant imbalances but have always assumed that there MUST be some. Most specifically because the athletes are ALWAYS traveling FORWARD. Therefor, I have always implemented reverse running and jogging into my weekly plan. I also incorporate lateral training in the conditioning cycle because I found that once a multi athlete gets rolling in track, they tend to be very durable. So I like to attack them as a full athlete in the early season.
The main imbalance that shows up is in indoor track in in the feet, knees, and back from tight turns on indoor tracks during indoor season."
