Hi Brent – sorry to take so long to get back to you. I was able to run only til late April when I started getting sharp stabbing pains that stopped me in my tracks. I had my surgery on June 30th. I could no longer walk more than 2 miles, no running….but I was biking and swimming at a high level up until surgery.

I am now seven months post op and can tell when doing one legged mobility and strength I am really not balanced yet. Since running is a one legged sport….it is very important to work that out. My swimming is great and I am back to about 70% of my potential on the bike. Since it is only February…..I am sure I will be ready to compete in duathlons and sprint triathlons this spring.

And oh BTW….I have no hip pain and am so glad I had it done.
