Long time since I posted here. 45 years of age with LTHR back in Feb 17. I’m booked in to get my right done in July but would expect that to be put off under current circumstances.
I still haven’t gone back running yet since surgery for a number of reasons but hoping to kick on now. Second hip isn’t too bad at the moment so thinking of deferring surgery until summer 2021.
I’ve a young family so at the moment I try to do 30 mins of exercise in the evening when the kids are gone to bed. I’m currently trying to alternate foam rolling and yoga one night to strength and conditioning the next. I’ve done the usual clams, donkey kicks, wall squats, etc to build up the strength but just wondering would anyone have any suggestions to really maximise the 30 min window? Joining a gym isn’t an option but open to the idea of using weights or kettle bells if necessary.
Alternatively am I better to do longer sessions but less frequently? (3-4 times a week). I’m hoping I could get back to do some 5ks before getting the right hip done. At the moment I don’t feel I have the lower body strength that I’d be comfortable running any kind of distance.
Any suggestions much appreciated.
