23 November. Right hip replacement. After 10 years of deterioration, it’s finally about to arrive. I hope in 4 months I’ll no longer be doing a couple of miles “jobbling” (jogging mostly hobbling) at snail’s pace and be able to get back to running through the local woods and fields without pain and at a pace which allows me to overtake dog walkers, rather than them overtaking me.
I doubt I’ll run beyond 10K, but being able to do that again will be wonderfully satisfying.
