      That’s great & Congratulations!!! I would love to hear details of your training and any issues you had and overcame.
      I am 7 months post THR. I started running again about 12 weeks post THR and will begin training for a half marathon in a couple of weeks.

      Thank you all! It has been a great year as I had also completed an Ironman in June so I had a great base to start my marathon training in late July. I kept up my swimming but was glad to get off the bike for a while. I was initially “hoping” to train for a 3:35 Boston qualifier but in August I ran into some serious heel/plantar fasciitis issues that spread into knee and glute pain.. arghh! It helped to step off the speed work and just concentrate on bi weekly long runs. I started with a decent base of 30 miles or so a week and built to several 45 mile weeks with two 20 mile long runs in there. My training included some good stretching and tons of foam roller work. I will say that I have not had any hip pain at all (knock on wood) and miraculously my plantar fasciitis seems to have faded since the race just 2 days ago. Who knows? My next race is the Last Chance 50K trail race here in Charleston on December 1st!
