      David, be patient, I had both hips replaced 2 1/2 years ago, I’m 61 now and I really didn’t start feeling totally pain free running until just recently. Everyone is different, and a lot of people go back to running within weeks/months, but for me I would get really sore the first couple years. I did a lot of other aerobic activity, particularly a lot of biking, and now I alternate every other day between running and biking. Best of luck as you progress!

      David,

      I totally get it. Like you, once the door opens an inch, I want to take a mile. So, I tend to overdo it also. The beauty is that your hip will be your guide. It will tell you when its had enough and you will have to listen to it. When the hip says that its had enough, take some days off until the pain subsides. Then get back on to the horse and try again. Eventually, you’ll be back. I should warn you though that I didn’t start attempting to run until after the third month. Even then, it felt COMPLETELY awkward. I finally started feeling good at about a year and half. Good Luck!
