5 Months Post Operation

I am 39 years old and had a LTHR five months ago. I had the anterior approach. My recovery has been great. I do the elliptical, spin, strength train, hip/glute specific exercises daily. My thigh is still numb, but I understand it could be that way for a while.

I have tried running twice. The first time was great. I ran a minute and walked a minute. I did this 4 times. This included a 15 minute warmup and 15 minute cool down. The next time I ran was a week later, after the third interval I had a deep pain in the bottom of my glute. I stopped. It hurt the rest of the day. The next day it was fine. Shew! It was such a deep pain that it has scared me to run again. 😩 But I dearly would love to try again. I have ran 15 marathons and 3 ultras and dearly miss it. I don’t want to run those kind of miles in the future.  I Only want to be able to be able to run a couple miles a few times a month. I miss running on vacation too! This is my hope!


1. Anyone experience this pain?
2. Anyone scared to run on new hip?

3. Recommended shoes? Hokas?

Thanks so much!!
