Gregg- 12 Weeks and 4 Days

Well, week 11 I ran 5 straight days. 1/2 mile, 1/2 mile, 1.33 miles, 2 miles and 3.22 miles. The last 2 runs were trail runs.

It felt good but I don’t think I’m quite ready to make that jump yet. Since then I have had a lot of soreness in the hip and my hamstring got strained. I need to continue to strengthen the surrounding muscles around my hip.

I am going to take a break from the running the next week or so and increase my cycling, swimming, elliptical and PT exercises.

I am finally being smart with my recovery 🙂

  1. Gregg,
    I remember those first runs and can relate to everything that you are experiencing. You are not cured overnight when you get your hip replaced. The hip will tell you when it is time to rest. You are being smart. But don’t let those moments when the hip starts hurting deter you from knowing that eventually you will run regularly again. Just keep doing what you are doing and resting when the hip says it is time to rest.
