Saw Dr. Jones, my hip surgeon, today and he was really please with were I was. Jeff Miller, my PT, got me well along and basically strength and mobility were at 100% thanks to Jeff.
Dr Jones told me if I were 25 he would turn me loose . . . but since I'm 62 he thinks I need to go forward more slowly. Start with a .5 mile run. Then add a minute each day (if I can!). Any pain I stop. Period.
Today I ran my first easy 1/2 mile in 5:30 after a 1/2 mile warm up walking. No pain whatsoever! Sooooooo Happy! I promise to keep within Dr. Jones' limits . . . but I'm running again!
