After hip resurfacing I am rediscovering the joys of trail running in New Zealand.

You may still be able to run with a hip replacement using an appropriate running technique and with the right approach.

The dangers of the day after

We all know what its like to be sore the day after unfamiliar exercise. Although running strengthens our muscles in the long term, in the short term they are weakened by unfamiliar stress. This is important to take into account as we try to protect our hips while restarting running after a hip replacement.

Your much requested eBook

A big thanks to all those who have requested more information about how to run with a hip replacement. I have spent the last few months writing a 90 page eBook which I hope will at least partly satisfy.
You can buy the eBook through Amazon for a very small fee ($2.99).

How long will it take?

Katheryn of Houston, TX is a runner undergoing a hip replacement operation emailed and wants to know, "How long did it take between your surgery and the first steps you were able to run?"

I can answer your question Katheryn but because every case is so different it may have no bearing on another question, "How long will it take you to get back to running?"
