Hey everybody, I’ve posted here a few times regarding my hip surgery. Just a recap, I had anterior THA of my left hip in February. I’ve been doing walks of up to 5 miles starting around week 8 of recovery in between physical therapy 3 days a week. At week nine I began doing 3o second jogs with 5 minute walks for 4 miles 2 to 3 days a week. I have no “hip pain” to speak of, just mild muscle soreness related to not having ran in the last 7 months. Last week the beginning of week 10 I stepped it up to 2 minutes of slow running (11:00-12:00 pace) followed with 2 minutes of walking, then I went to running flats and downhills at 9:30-11:00 pace and walking all of the up hills as rests for 5 miles. I’m still mixing in the 2 minutes on, 2 minutes off workouts with my running flats and downhills runs and even on those runs when I feel overly fatigued I’ll stop running and walk it out until I recover. Aside for muscle soreness to lack of conditioning I’ve had no aches or pains coming from the area around the prosthetic. I know we all know our bodies bests, but generally speaking from a clinical standpoint, am I pushing it to soon? I’ve shortened up my stride to more of a mid foot strike during my run segments, I run in Brooks Glycerins (the 19’s are amazing) for all of my slow or rest day running and they work really well here as well. I just hope that I’m not pushing it to soon, I have my 12 week evaluation May 11th hopefully all will be cleared up then to return to full activity.
