Recovery continues to go well (LTHR 12/21/17). Ran 7.5 miles today (2/12/18) at an 8:05 pace, 7 1/2 weeks after getting my hip replaced. No significant pain.
Saturday (2/10/18) ran 6.4 miles at a 7:17 pace, which took a lot out of my legs, but hip felt good.
I continue to augment my running with strength training which I think helps tremendously, along with watching my diet closely.
For anyone considering a THR, its giving me my active life back. Prior to my surgery, I couldn’t run a mile without tremendous pain. I am hopeful I can get back to enjoying road races again.
I had a LTHR on 12/21/17. Doc gave me the all clear on Monday,1/29. I had been lifting, using the lifecycle, elliptical and doing burpees without much issue prior to Monday. However, I wasn’t able to run very well, and had lots of pain after.
Tuesday I went for my first “official run”, a whopping 1.1miles, at a 9:13 pace. While I felt a bit like a 3 legged dog, it was a start. Most importantly, I didn’t have much pain after. Looking forward to a run tmw, and many more after.
l should have gotten this done 3 years ago!
Left hip replaced on Thursday 12/21. I have been doing what I can to stay active and sane, so today, 12/24, I decided to do hill repeats… with my walker… 4x 0.25 mile repeats, with 10x walker dips after each rep.
getting my full $27 worth of the walker rental. Continue reading “Hill Repeats 3 days after THR – sort of…”
So I officially joined the club yesterday, LTHR. Was in and out of hospital in 12.5 hrs. Over did exercise a bit to get the epidural to wear off, that was a mistake.
Signed up for the San Jose Spartan Sprint Race on 3/24. Plan to do Trifecta in 2018.
Overall feeling good, just hard managing the idle time.
I am 45, scheduled to get my left hip replaced on 12/21. I go in for a pre-op visit and the only magazine is the one below. Are they trying to tell me something? Lol
Its been about 5 years since I have ran, and I thought I would never would again. I found this site once I decided to get my hip replaced (scheduled for Christmas time). Reading your posts has me very optimistic and inspired. Keep ’em coming!
looking forward to becoming an “official” member in about 8 wks.
