10 weeks post THR and feeling strong!

Hi all!  So today is my 10 week mark — have my official 12-week checkup in a little over 2 weeks from now and amazed at the progress made just in the last few weeks.  Minor swelling but all bruising is gone, no more tenderness and incision looks better each day.

Each week I am pushing myself more with physical activity — I’m now up to 30 minutes at a good clip on the exercise bike, plus then another 10 – 15  minutes on the treadmill walking briskly uphill at 10% incline.  My biggest goal is to get my cardio strength back to where it was and continue to build strength.  I can now do leg presses/leg extensions with increasing amount of weight, and weighted leg raises.

My hip itself still feels a little weak — Anyone have any good hip strengthening  exercises they would recommend?

This last week after a good workout I found myself tempted to think about trying to jog on the treadmill….Not ready to try, but thought about it!

To any Hip Runners out there doing the La Jolla Half Marathon this weekend, good luck!  The course starts right by my house so plan to be out on highway 101 cheering everyone on!  Jealous as all get out of course.  🙂
