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.

Three year anniversary yesterday
« on: February 17, 2014, 11:27:58 PM »
I just thought I'd chime in with a three year update as of yesterday. Absolutely no regrets at this point.  Last year I really started to feel 'strong' with lots of cycling (crits, road races and cyclocross), a bit more running and also throwing in a weekly Kettle-bell class. 

While cycling takes up a ton of my time w/regards to sports, I think the bells class has really helped balance things out with regards to my legs, core etc. L

I still read this board on occasion and try to chime in when I can.  :)

I'd be curious to know if anyone has seen any recent survivor stats from Dr. Gross lately.  I think his last posted graph is a few years old.
