If you haven’t run since 2007 you might consider yourself a new or beginner runner and find a start to run program. I know it’s hard but you will not be returning to your old self of running 7/8 miles per day in the near term. Most programs would mix short runs with walks. They would also recommend specific strengthening exercises.
You will most likely feel soreness as you return to running because those are muscles and tendons you haven’t used in awhile.

This site is a blessing. I am 64 yrs old now. I use to run 7 to 8 miles everyday before having my left side done in 2007. After that surgery I was told that I would never be able to run again, and it was suggested that I take up cycling or swimming. Fast forward, I had my right side done Jan 2021. Completed physical therapy and was completely satisfied with just going swimming, which I do 3 to 4 times a week. I stumble up on this site by mistake and it was just awesome to read about some of the testimonies. Just to know that it is a possibility to run again just sent cold chills through my body. Especially since I was told that I could never run again. Question to anyone that may have a answer. Right now both sides hurts or I feel a discomfort when I walk 2 to 3 blocks. Is that normal or should I reframe from trying to jog at this time.
Thanks for the feedback.

Consider going to physical therapy. Ask your doctors for a script. Probably your muscles are just atrophied. And if there is a deeper problem, the pt will help you identify it.
And no, you shouldn’t be hurting on both sides from walking a few blocks. Nope. Actually that’s worth discussing with your original hip surgeon and going to a PT for.
