16 Week Update
« on: March 14, 2012, 04:04:37 PM »
To celebrate 16 weeks today I went for my first 30 mile road bike ride on the new hips.  I took it easy: 2:09:34 and everything feels great.  Right now I'm sitting here with the ice, which I still do almost every afternoon.  I stretch every morning and I'm feeling nice and loose.  Most of the time my right side feels like there was never anything wrong.  My left is just a little behind; sometimes I can still feel that something was done.  No pain though.  Oh, I got a slight pain in the left groin muscle once when I twisted funny.  Strength is coming back slowly and I couldn't be happier with my progress so far.

Workouts:

stretching and core; every morning

Walk, swim, road bike, gym;  2 of those every day

54 days until I can run again!

Awesome Woody.  :)

You are an inspiration!

I have my sight set on a backpacking trip in the Maroon Bells near Aspen in mid-July. Hopefully some longer hikes by May.

Its great to hear from someone who is doing so well at 4 months out.

Congrats!

Thanks everyone,

I expected to be sore in the hips this morning but I feel just fine.  I'll be heading to the gym this morning but going easy on the leg work, then out walking in the woods after lunch.

Amy, have a great time in the Maroon Bells,  I was there once and it was beautiful!
