THR December 1 feeling strong.. Prep for running?

Hi my name is J.R.  I am 59 years old and had a THR on December 1,2020.  Prior to surgery my hip pain limited my cardio to 30 minutes on the stair climber, 10 minutes of intervals on the elliptical and 5  three minute rounds on the heavy bag (3x a week)  Up to a month before surgery my resistance training workout consisted of 6 super-sets and 3 individual stations.  Among other things,  I was doing cleans, dead lifts, leg presses step-ups all of which engaged my hips (2x a week)

My surgeon is an excellent technical surgeon who used the anterior -lateral approach.  Unfortunately , he does not support high impact activities like running.  After an agonizing and extremely painful first week I was walking unassisted on day 8 post surgery.  By day 12 I was walking  1/4 mile with ease and no pain.  I am now 29 days post surgery and I easily walked 2 miles and my cardio workout is 7 three minute rounds on the heavy bag and 20 minutes of intervals on the spin bike.

My questions are:  What should I be doing to best prepare to run again?   How long should I wait before I start incorporating  jogging a few steps into my walks?   What warning signs should I be on the look out for that may indicate I am pushing it to far?… (Click Here to View Full Post and Comments)
