Absolutely no point rushing it Pietro. Glad to hear your times are improving. Stay positive and optimistic. In time you’ll be running again….FOR SURE!!! Great post!

thank you Tom. Still progressing well: I have just walked the parkrun 5km in 35:31 this morning, and no spasms afterwards (any faster than that and I might have to run it!). I am going through the hoops: elliptical trainer, stationary bike, wall climbing machine, brisk walks, stretching… and I have even been quietly started fitting in a few slow jogs in my walks. Started with 30 seconds very slow jog and 90 seconds walk only 2 or 3 times, and now I can comfortably alternate 1 min jog and 1 min walk for 10 reps. This is just to keep moving a bit, as my second hip is coming in less than 3 weeks now. The real test will come in about 4 or 5 months. But it feels awesome to be outdoors and to start “running”, even at a ridiculously slow pace. It keeps your mind on the right track.
