Hope I can help with some answers:
Did you run after hearing you had hip arthritis?
Yes; but started “dialing it back” with less emphasis on road marathons
How long after the arthritis diagnosis did you end up having a hip replacement? About 4 years
What types of changes did you make to your changing after diagnosis? Less racing and marathons, more cross-training incorporated into the week, more flexibility work
What sorts of training helped or hurt? Unfortunately most any activity would trigger ache or pain… running hard and long was the worst aggrivator but most any activity would including anything requiring lateral stability… casual soccer, cabled leg swings in Pilates, etc
Hope that helps!
