I am a young man from Latvia (European Union). First half Marathon I ran at the age of 42 in 2008. My first Marathon was in 2010. I have 45 half Marathons, 42 Marathons and 16 Ultra in my collection.
Three and half weeks ago I had a left leg hip replacement surgery.
Surgery is not the end of my running career. It is a small pause. I promise to run half Marathon this year. I hope it will be a Marathon. My physiotherapist will decide that.
At this moment I can to go 50 meters without crutches. It is short distance. Today. But that is start of my new way to Marathon.
I have one big problem. I hate sleeping on my back. I get back ache from that and more importantly – I get tingling feeling in my operated leg. Another problem is my sleep. The longest sleep time I’ve had since my surgery is 1.5 hours. Unfortunately, drugs do not help me to sleep longer. Do you have a similar problem?
