Its now 30 months Post Op, [7/7/2014] and everything is just great with my hip. I have no worries or problems doing Triathlon, so long as I keep it to Standard Olympic Distance/Sprint Distances only.
Swimming and Biking pose no issues, but once I start running in excess of 12km, whammo, the pain starts to arise. Any thought of doing a Half Ironman is “out the back-door”. I find I can manage 3 Run sessions per week of about a 5km, 8km and 11km.
What does help alot is that virtually all of my running is done on grass or a soft type surface. All in all, life is treating me and my HIP brilliantly, so fingers crossed it stays this way and I can keep competing on the Triathlon scene.
