I’m getting a hip on my right side on 4/30/20. I’ve run since 1971. I was fairly competitive. My best distance was the 1/2 marathon but did run a 2:45 in Boston several years ago. I’m hoping to just be able to run a few days a week and maybe do a 5K or 10K somewhere down the line. My left hip is in good shape. Extreme pronation on my right side took its toll over the years. I know the medical community basically says don’t run on a replacement. I became aware of this web site and thought maybe there’s some hope for me post surgery.
I’m very active. I swim 3-4 miles weekly. I play hockey, tennis and hike. So I’m in relatively decent physical shape. If I run again it will likely be on trails in northern Michigan.
Any thoughts on the prospect of me running after I get my hip?… (Click Here to View Full Post and Comments)
