Hello fellow Hippies!
I had a total hip replacement 3 1/2 months ago. before that i ran everything i could from 5k’s to 50k’s (5k in 17.13 best, marathon in 2.56 best, 50k in 4.04 best). Going from all to nothing as well as covid has been as manky as you could imagine…i feel stodgy, rubbery, tired, unfit and generally poo! i have started back swimming, spinning and walking which has rescued the inner spark into a small glow, but i really want to start running again. any info? start at what distance? start on what shoes? start for how long? start on what surface?? Start at all??…..please can you help me….44 years of age, female and going fecking mental!
