I am a runner and athlete who is 53 years old and yesterday I was in formed by a hip specialist that I will need to have my left hip replaced!
Once its done he recommends that I do 'no' impact sports like running after my surgery!
Did your doctor tell you the same?
Did you ignore his advice?
Do you think you will have the whole thing done again? And do you think your running now is fast forwarding that?
Do you tell your doctor now that you run?
If so what is his reaction?
I want to return to running, any advice you can give to help me make it happen
I may be wrong, but I don't think Amy has posted on here in more than 4 years.
Amy, that is awesome! You're an inspiration to me and to many others, I'm sure!
Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject. - S.J.
Wow and quadruple wow!!! Living life to the max!
Live the Adventure. Enjoy the Journey. Be Kind. Have Faith!
Funny thing is that now, if she posted today, it could be an attempt to break a record in an age group that is 5 years older than when she originally posted this in 2008....
Wow, but WTH 'Athlete'. Not, "What the Heck", but "Who the Heck" are you? and "Why the Heck" did you post the response 4+ years after OP....
MTA: Ok, I see in Amy's "About Me" portion the stuff that links "athlete's" question to the OP, but still questioning the timing.
#1: Do what I can do (200+ training days, 200+ aerobic hours).
#2: Race shape (1/2 marathon, 2 half Ironmans, marathon)
#3: Prepare for 2018

Your toughness is made up of equal parts persistence and experience. You don't so much outrun your opponents as outlast and outsmart them, and the toughest opponent of all is the one inside your head." - Joe Henderson
