One year post second HR and Getting Ready for Second Ironman
« on: March 10, 2013, 04:13:40 AM »
Hey ya'll. just wanted to drop in and say to all you potential HR folk - "what the hell are you waiting for?"  It's been.. blah blah blah (you can read my story here numerous times). When I was in the throws of pain, confusion and desperation - Surface Hippy,and the members on it, where a great source of information and support.

God Bless this site.  I haven't been on because I have been too busy doing everything.  My 2012 race season was off the hook.  2013 is gonna be sick. Got Ironman Texas in 8 weeks, then a few long distance swims, the Army ten miler, a few Sprint Tris, NAtion's Tri and to top it off - the Marine Corps Marathon (shooting for a 4:30).  The only thing that is going to slow me down is this new job. 

Here are a few pointer from an Old G:
Keep doing the Pt exercises.  I stopped and realized how important they are to my continued recovery. Even 2 years post op on my right hip on 1 on my left, I still need PT to strengthen muscles and joints. Running, swimming and biking doesn't do it.

Keep weight down
Broke 190 lbs and felt it. Going back down to 175-180. Notice a big difference.

You can walk real fast
After running 1-13 miles. I get sore. Walk/running is real effective and I still am able to average 10-11 minute miles on long distances. But some speed walking vodes. These people are serious and getting 10 minute miles.

Some times you got to go fast
I am busting a few sprints here and there. I notice with each one I am getting faster. My goal is to whip my 18 year old son's butt in a 400 meter.

Beware the THR folk
They are out there competing. I thought i was the only Real Ironman till a THR guy passed me on the run. Damn it!

Get it done and get your life back.  You guys can check me out at http://ironman4youth.blogspot.com/2012/09/fighting-to-starting-line.html

Peace!

OMG!  This is great news!  I used to run distance but have not been able to since blowing out my hip.  I am scheduled for 4/6/13 and you have just made my day!  I so want to get back to running, biking, hiking, etc I can just taste it.

How long before you were able to start?

Kim the how long question is a contentious issue. Different surgeons have differing opinions on this. Personally I subscribe to the McMinn wait 12 months school but other surgeons are more liberal.

Great to hear from you, hip - excellent news on all of the competitions. I'm really interested on the 400 - how are you training for that?

Keep it up, HnH.  You are an inspiration to us all.  I returned to triathlon last Saturday at the Haleiwa sprint.  Three mile run with two miles on the deep sand beach.  My hips were never an issue.
