Hi BuffaloFreddy!!
Yes for sure those hanging knee raises or straight leg raises are a challenge!!
I am 8 months post op THR on left and 3 years on right . The first few months those were pretty painful to do . I kept at them and now it is almost pain free .
I believe they are very worth while to do them . Strengthening the hip flexors are an important part to help stabilize your run . Strength training along with daily runs / walks is the key ! Keep trying .Take a day off to rest and heal and try again .
