Merry Christmas, apex predators. May your gifts be massive and your hips well

Surgery: Dec 2, 2016. Ceramic into poly, right side.

Ran my longest since surgery, today, Dec 23, 2017: 20.2km. Went slow….

It was -1 C or about 32F. Doesn’t typically get that cold here. Must be that global cooling.

Merry Christmas. Drink your faces off.


I took a picture of this very handsome devil before he went on his run.

  1. That’s great! Congrats.

    How long did it take for swelling to go down and where u were feeling “normal” after surgery? I am two days removed from surgery.


  2. Can’t remember how long it took to feel normal. After three months to the day or close to it, I walked with downhill ski poles a 10K trail loop took about 2:04. Today, one year and three weeks later, I ran 20k in 2:27 and I went slow today.

    BUT the right leg is still smaller than the left, so it takes awhile. My surgeon says a total of 2years. But I felt pretty normal for walk around and doing day to day thing (not endurance sports) few weeks??? I think.

    Be patient, everyone has a slightly different recovery – do the physio that they asked you to do…..
