8 months post op.
10 mile road race to test the new hip properly. Pb 3 years ago at 69 mins so this was going to be interesting. Physician recommends keeping my time on tarmac to a minimum. Its a cool, breezy but sunny morning as 555 line up on the start line. I set myself a goal of 90 minutes. I do a mile warm up and decide to start slowly. one mile in and 8.00 mins is slightly faster than anticipated. Remember run as you feel I remind my self. The first sign of any pain and slow down.
10 miles later, 79 minutes (222 of 555 finishers) and no pain.
I only run twice a week and am focusing on static bike and core strength training. It seems t be working so now starting to plan an event diary for the year, Don’t quite want to call it a race diary yet!
Keep the faith folk’s!
