Hi all! I am 13 weeks post THR and happy to report I’ve been able to increase my training/walking/strength work each week. The knee/IT band pain I have had is now subsiding and almost gone as my leg gets used to the new orientation in the hip.
Yesterday I took the new hip out for a good test — did the annual Coronado Bay Bridge Run/Walk where you get to actually go over the bridge (never open to pedestrians!) — It is a great opportunity to get a truly magical view of San Diego and have done it once before, years ago when I ran it.
This year was a walking year but super happy to report that I did around 6 miles yesterday with no problems! Walk itself was 4 miles then did some walking both before and after.
I remain impressed with everyone’s running stories and am feeling the urge! Not quite there yet and haven’t actually decided if I want to go back into it or not, but I feel the strength and stability in my hip increasing each day and it’s super encouraging.
Happy Monday all!
