I’ll hit my 5 year anniversary for my left hip in a couple weeks and just celebrated 4 years for my right hip replacement. I apologize for being scarce. Running a business and having 3 active boys in High School have made time scarce. (All 3 run XC)
Sooooo what can everyone expect? We can expect to continue much more active lifestyles once we get our replacements. And we can expect to get older and have other parts of our bodies fail. As for me, I’m still running regularly 5 days per week. I have pulled back from any type of intense training. Sore back, pull hamstring, IT Band issues, etc. have forced me to re-evaluate my competitive spirit. I’m now Forrest Gump.. I Just Run.
That said, we all have different goals and expectations. Sometimes reality doesn’t match the goals and expectations. As for me, I’m just thankful to be running, skiing, sleeping, etc. without pain. My mind, body and spirit are in a very good place. All thanks to my replacements.
That’s it for now. Please keep up the great stories!!
