7 weeks out

Hi fellow hiprunners,

I am 7 weeks out today from my rthr.  I have been recovering very quickly- I am 42 and very fit before surgery.

I can do all physical activities-except heavy lifting for legs, abs exercises that stress use of hip flexors too much.

I ran a half mile at week 5.  One mile week 6.  I am dying to run.

Can anyone provide their journey back to running?

I am nervous to do too much too soon.  But, I know my body will tell me.

My hip feels fine during the day.  At night I get some leg aches and have trouble sleeping.

      When I had my replacement almost 9 years ago at age 49, I was considered young. And I bounced back fairly quickly. My only advice is take it slow. You’ll get there. I ran a half marathon less than 6 months after my first hip replacement. I set a goal to run La Jolla. Set a goal to do something big, but don’t expect a PR or anything close to that. St Jude’s in Memphis would be fun and about 6 months out and well within your reach. Just take it slow.
