17 mos. Post-op AND now FASTER

There is hope…

to not have pain in the affected hip

to be able to run again (for me 45 days post-op)

to race again (60-days post-op)

to run a marathon (11 months post-op)

to run an ultramarathon (13 months post-op)

to better my pre-op 5k (ran 20:07 16 months post-op)

to better my pre-op 10k (ran 42:46 17 months post-op)

Now I’m not expecting lifetime PR’s at age 50… but most docs say I should not be running 😉

LIVE IN HOPE HIPSTERS!!!!!

      Brilliant, WedgeC – well done, most inspiring!

      I am too old to think of PRs but in Masters age percentage terms I too managed a best score over 5k, 73%, 11 years after my previous best (albeit 2:20 slower) and this gives me great hope for the future too..

      Keep believing and keep getting faster… or at times – just keep moving forward!
      Yesterday I ran 20:47 for a trail 5k and will break 20-minutes at 5k soon… 17 months post-op THR. It’s not perfect but I have no pain am enjoying running!
