Welcome Back

The Hip Talk Discussion Forum was hacked a few weeks back. It has taken me a long time to fix it. The only backup I could use was way back to April 2020. All members and posts up to that date are available. Anything newer has been lost. I am sorry, but that has been the only way to get things up and running again.

Don't yell at me people!!!! I just want to hear from the Hippie who breaks my record. Get your arses moving hippies! And to all those who are the  scared, I don't know, how long will the pain last, should i just get a THR types (that was me), don't let pain ruin your quality of life.  Listen to my fellow hippies: "get the best surgeon you can and do the thing!"  You know what they say: No Pain - No Cane!

No yelling, hip - my surgeon wanted me on a bike quick. You're competitive and it's going to drive your recuperation. Pretty darned good, my man. Take care of them hips well and keep on keepin' on ... more disco wisdom...

No yelling this time, Hip.  You go!  The bike is great as long as you aren't doing sprints. It's the pounding of running that hurts.

I love uphills and headwinds!

Averaging almost nineteen MPH...that's fantastic!  I think Marcus and I are both wondering where you found 56 miles of downhill!? 

I'm just jealous.

Keep up the good work!

Wow!  Looking forward to being able to get back on my bike.  Don't think I'll beat your time though, even downnhill!
How long after the op did you start cycling?

I'm going by memory, but I'm pretty sure I laid down a 2:59 for 60 miles at 3 mo. :)
jk. Pretty sure I was still on the trainer at 3 mo. Congrats, and glad to hear the recovery is going great!
FWIW, I recall that during the first year, I didn't have a problem with long, steady state rides, but a couple times I tried to contest for the sprints (on group rides), and I got some serious muscle pain around the incision area.

Way to go Hip! Nice job, I didn't come close to 19 plus at 3 months, I guess I managed a 17.5 for 40 mi with some hills. How about quantity, I had 1008 miles at 3 months and 3710 at 6 months. Perhaps a bit unfair since I'm retired, but by the same token I'm OLD.
Life is good.

does it count that I did a 13.5 mtn bike ride in 1hr 37 min at 3 months?  From what i recall, isn't it like 5:1 dirt to pavement ratio?  so that's like comparable 67 miles?  LOL

Great Job HipN!

I felt more power in 1 yr BHR hip. I need to focus on single leg pedaling to build strength in recently operated hip.  Never noticed the difference until this ride.  I got back on stationary bike at week 6 and riding ever since. I just avoid high traffic areas. I will even drive an hour or two to get to a good safe area.

Dude, no problem.  75 miles in 3:53 today.  First 44 into a 10-15 mph head win. It was 18 mph ave. at 44 miles, and on the way home kept it around 21-24mph.   H.R. kept between 130-140 the whole time.  Easy/Moderate Tempo Ride.

Hey Mr Hiphop, great ride. I figured about an 18.6 avg. there.
What did you do to rehab so quickly? I'd like to get back on the bike as soon as possible. Did you have a lot of pain?
I'm 55 and was doing 160 miles per week. I had to quit on Easter. It started bothering me too much on the bike. I'm having surgery 7/16.

Pro - you won't regret the surgery.  You will be back in the saddle before you know it. Just listen to your Surgeon and take it easy.  I started on the Stationary bike at the gym at week 4.  Started off with 15 minutes, low resistance and gradually built back up.  I am doing some one leg pedaling drills to increase my hip strength in the left hip. 

Might make sense to get a new Bike fitting.  My bike fitter put an extended stem on the front to allow me a great angle when in aero bars.  I think I pick up a little more wind resistance but I am very comfortable int he saddle. Let us know how your surgery goes. We are here for you.
