Hey Runindy!
Be sure to prep your space for the recovery period. For instance if you can install grab bars in the bathroom you should do it now. This will be especially important since you live alone. You might even consider a raised toilet seat. At any rate, the pain that you are feeling right now will be long gone but the journey to complete recovery will require some mental yoga to avoid overdoing it too soon. I was back out running after 3 months. It took a year and a half before I finally felt like I was running like my old self again. Don’t want to discourage you, just want you to be prepared. Keep your head up and stay optimistic. You’ll be back at it soon and each day will get better and better.
