Post THA and running again!

Hi all!

I had a THA on 3/20/20. Guess the timing of my surgery was perfect: just a few months after finishing a marathon (in great shape – except from for the hip of course) and just a few hours before all elective surgeries were stopped and the whole country more or less shut down. The timing has made it possible for me to stay home and focus on recovery – I usually travel every week for work. I did all the PT as asked, and walked as much as I could. Recovery has been going remarkably well this far (even if there of course have been up and downs) and at 6 weeks(!!) post surgery I was cleared by my doctor to start running again. I’ve eased into the mileage with small increases every week and now I’m doing 4 miles, 3 times a week. My goal is to regain speed and get back to doing half marathons (my normal distance). It’s so inspiring to read all your stories and knowing I’m not alone out there on the trails. Thank you all for sharing successes as well as struggles!… (Click Here to View Full Post and Comments)
