      Hi Pietro – well done, and you beat my time of 25:05 today, if not my 69.5% age grade. My most recent hip is 3 years in May, best 5k since then was 23:53 a year or so ago. Best time as a 60 year old with arthritic hips was 22:03, 9 years ago.
      Hope you can maintain the progress, I shall watch Palmerston results with interest! I run Braunstone and Leicester Victoria in the UK, desperate to get back under 24 mins at the moment…
      Regards,

      Pete

      Hi Pete, I think you can be very happy with your age grade…
      I actually started running after the onset of hip arthritis as I could no longer do sports involving contact/jumping/twisting. Was still doing ok up to 2 years ago with a parkrun best of 20:50 and a marathon around 3:45 every year, so I still have a bit of recpbuilding to do before I get there, but it’s looking good.
      I particularly appreciate the posts of those like you who are still running a few years after surgery, as there isn’t any decent amount of published data about running in the long term.

      Great Progress Report Pete! Keep it up! It will get better. It took me 16-18 months before I finally started feeling like I was getting back to normal.
