      I’ve been reading about everyone’s recovery and have been a bit jealous because my recovery has been much slower than expected. ┬áMy THR was performed

      That’s the spirit Eric! The hip dictates the pace of your return, but your return to running is imminent!

      Hi Eric! Sounds like you are doing really well! I echo Tom’s comment — your hip will tell you what you are ready for and what pace is best — everyone is different. Keeping it slow and steady is the best call and you’ll get faster and stronger as you go. At 8 months you are really just getting your strength back and I didn’t start running until 7 months after — slow and steady and by the following spring I was training for a half and finished a half just under 14 months after my THR. slow and steady and keep us posted on your progress!
      Aimee.

      Suggest you try not to worry about your pace. You have a second chance to run without pain. That’s a big deal!

      Eric,
      Get some well cushioned shoes. Hokas are good, but I now like the highly cushioned Altras (wide forefoot). I guess the jury is still out (although, not my jury) on weather cushioned shoes are beneficial, but you WILL feel a positive difference in them. Even if it’s for a short time, or even if it’s placebo, it’s worth it.
      Healing and improvement for me, is coming in spurts and fits.
      Good luck,
      gj
