Bryant here again. You all motivate me incredibly… I had my 2nd THR May 24th. And amazingly I feel great… I do get a little reminder every once in a while but that’s usually very mild. I have been swimming religiously, weight lifting and lots of stretching. Even doing squats better than I have in 20 years. Rode bike 60 miles on Saturday at about a 17.5 mph avg pace. Two weeks ago I started running experimentally and I am working carefully on developing/ perfecting a mid-foot landing form. Seems to help quite a bit. This past Wednesday I ran 4 miles at about a 10.5 mph pace with no pain. I’ve signed up for a Triathlon in September and plan to walk/run that portion. Will be my first open ocean swim… funny that’s the part I’m worried about vice the run.
Question for anyone.. what kind of running shoes are you using? I’ve just started with Newtons to get away from heel striking and although awkward I like them. Wondering if I’ll start losing toenails now? Anyway keep up the great work everyone! If anyone is in or near Charleston SC let me know! The 40th Cooper River Bridge Run is next spring – great race in a great city!
Great to see HipRunner on Facebook & Twitter!
