      Ahhhh. The dreaded piriformis. Since you only started running 3 months ago, my guess is that your body is still getting used to running on the new hip. Give it a rest and then when the pain has settled down…….ease back into it. These issues will occur as you ramp up your running.

      I agree with Tom. I started running again about 2.5 months post THR. I constantly listen to my body. IF I am feeling any weirdness, I do another type of cardio. I run 3-4 miles 3 times a week. I also strength train my quads, butt and hammies 3-4 times a week. Those muscles need to support your running and if they’re weak, your runs will not go well.
      Listen, be patient and soon, you’ll soar!

      Checkout an earlier post of mine for some exercises I do that I think really help. These are all free and can be done in 7 minutes. http://hiprunner.com/?p=8504
