Hey Will, greetings from NC. I had just turned 44 when I had my surgery RH Anterior with ceramic and plastic. I was in shape when I had the surgery. Recovery went well. I used the elliptical, rode a bike and did a lot of walking and climbing stairs. Was back to work in 10 weeks. I currently do a lot of running on a treadmill and average about 7.3 mph on an incline. After 12 weeks you should be able to pass the test but I think it will be a challenge. I am 15 months post up and the fastest I was able to run was 7.9 mph for a two minute sprint. My leg was sore after that sprint. I have put this hip replacement Thru a lot and it has held up. Worst It feels is sore if I overdo it but that goes away after a couple of days. I will try a 8.2 mph sprint tomorrow at the gym and see how my hip feels after.
