Miles, broken up.

I hit 32 miles last week! Over thirty, OMG!
The problem with that is that many were walking miles. I've been cleared to not take walk breaks, but I found that when I did that, I was having pain with walking later in the day. So the breaks came back - every mile, 2 miles, or 3 miles, depending on the day.

I am probably going to call my doctor after I hit the 16 week post-op mark. I haven't been progressing lately: I felt better, starting running, felt ok, but had pain later...and there it has stayed. I did talk to him while at work, and he seemed to think that was fine and normal, and reminded me that I may still have pain for months, years, or forever. But I have to know that I am not damaging anything in this hip. I don't want to blithely run it into ruination!

Could the pain be nerve damage? Sure. I already had nerve involvement before surgery.
Could it be residual surgical pain? Definitely.
Could it be continued pinching and catching of the labrum? It could, but I need to make sure it's not!

Until then, I'm still breaking the miles up a little with walking. It's a smart way to ease back in anyway.


  1. I think you are doing exactly what you should be doing by slowly easing back into things by alternating walking and running. That is the smart thing to do for sure.

  2. You're being so smart about your recovery. I know too many runners who would keep pushing despite the pain and the chance of making things worse.
