Your amazing. I have had Full hip replacement beginning of May 2019. Fine if I run up hills but not that great on the flat.
I love running but have not been able too do it for 2 years, previous too that I was pregnant and before that I was running and extremely active. I was a national boxing athlete.
I never had problems with my joints or hips until I fell pregnant.
Because I felt so great one day I over did it.I run fast on the treadmill doing fartlicks. I love running like this. Bad news it has caused me too go backwards in my healing.
Wondering if anyone has any advice out there. Hanging out too go hard but think I need too stick too swimming, cycling etc and strength training. Go hard in those forms of exercise.
Why would my knee hurt? Has anybody had this happen? I have both knees and hips checked for arthritis and there are no problems there.
I have a stone and a half too loose. Maybe it’s that.
Look forward too any advice.
Yes I know i have learnt no going hard running. Start baby steps.
Too all you guys out there that are running with hip prostheses you are amazing. You are my inspiration. When I found this website I just about cried because I felt quit alone. I want too be competitive again. Not a couch slouch. Running keeps me mentally sane. It’s the way I relax and think. My trail running and dogs.
