Gregg- 11 Weeks Still (I RAN!!)

Quick update on my progress in the last 4 days since I last did a post. My hip has been feeling better and better everyday so Wednesday night (11 weeks exactly since my THR) I decided to give the treadmill a try.

I was apprehensive at first and started at 3.0 mph but quickly saw that I could go a lil faster than that. I ran a total of a half mile!! I freakin’ loved it! I felt like a runner again. It was slow and I took real small strides. it took me 9 mins but I could care less about my time. I WAS RUNNING AGAIN! 🙂

The next morning the first thing I did was check my hip out for soreness or pain and it felt fine. So I went straight back to the gym (5:30am) and did it again! Same speed and everything.

All day at work I was on cloud nine and I couldn’t wait to go back. So, right after work I went home, changed clothes, and headed right back to the gym. This time running 1.3 miles in 20 mins!!

The next day, Friday, my hip was a little sore so I did just 1 mile. Saturday morning (today)I woke up and it felt great! I was itching to try a lil trail running. My girlfriend and I went to a local trail and ran 2.0 miles in 33 mins 23 seconds! The run was awesome! I ran slow, good form, short strides and walked most of the hills.

I am loving life!! 🙂

  1. Awesome Gregg! So glad to hear that you were able to start running. You’ll find that the hip pain will come and go. Sometimes it may seem frustrating. But you are listening to your body so keep it up. By about 12-13 months…..you won’t be thinking at all about your hip….
