TREADMILL RUNNING

Hello all,

rainy day here so going to hit the elliptical and treadmill this morning early.  Had anterior hip replacement on 11/28/2023 .  Wondering if anyone has returned to running by using the treadmill as a starter tool after hip replacement?  I have been running one minute nd then walking 1 minute and going to 2 miles.  I have read that this is better from the beginning to help with timing and safer than roadwork at the beginning.  I am wondering how fast to run and how much to increase speed?  Incline is set to 1.5 currently.  Would like to hear anyone’s story on running on treadmill and how they did and how they progressed after surgery.  Don’t know how many days to run with taking a break.  Trying to interval biking and weights in between treadmill runs but really want to run more than anything.

 

Anyone’s treadmill running story or thoughts would be much appreciated.

 

thanks,

TJ

      Hey TJ. Your approach is very sound. I would have a hard time on the “dreadmill” but more power to you. The biggest thing I can tell you is to listen to the hip. It’s not about running time or miles covered right now. Focus on recovery and doing what you can. As the hip heals, you will get stronger and do more. It’s been 13 years for me and I am headed out to run a 50k next weekend. Stay patient and always always always ……… stay optimistic!
