Runnergreg, Sounds like a good plan; don’t go big, just enjoy what you can. Regarding the groin pain, I had significant amounts before my two THRs. It would start after 20 miles, then 15, then 5, until no more running and barely walking. My orthopedist said that I ground down the hip cartilage, and my quads had to overcompensate leading to a severe muscle imbalance, and the constant groin pulls. We have to remember that our hip joints are replaced, but many of the other components are still the original, well-used, parts. Best.
