I passed the 10 week post surgery mark this past week and thought I would give an update.
I am progressing very well. Hip strength is coming back and the pain level is very low. It is nothing a couple IBU cannot knock down. Balance is still a bit of an issue. I am working a lot on that now.
My PT is working me with some challenging work outs and it is really helping, especially with strength and balance. I am glad I chose this PT to work with. He is a personnel friend so he knows me and knows what I want to accomplish. With his help I will certainly get there, and that means running again.
I did get a nice 30 mile bike ride in over the weekend and that felt grand. I do feel my stamina needs some work, so with the weather finally turning warmer around here, I should be able to work more on this in the coming weeks.
The goal now is to take part in a century charity ride on May 15. It is the local Ride for Missing and Exploited Children. It is a great ride for a great cause and definitely my favorite. I hope to get some good training rides in until then and hopefully, I will not have to use the SAG wagon for any of this ride.
I hope all is well with all the HipRunners out there.
