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.

6 year HR anniversary with Prof. Cobb 2010
« on: January 31, 2016, 12:55:59 PM »
Hi to all hippy friends old and new- just checking in to say my fantastic HR was six years old yesterday. I celebrated with a 20k bike ride followed by a 2k swim- rainy day so I'm off to Hampstead Heath for one hour mixed walk/ run.
Time of year again to thank Pat and the other pioneers of HR.
Cheers
Toby
Ps Saw my surgeon last year for X-rays and bloods and his protocol is next check up at 10 year mark

Great news Toby, and you have had a surprisingly similar day to me to celebrate - 6k run, 20k bike and 2k row, all indoors because of the weather. Hope mine lasts the next 5 years at least!

Great to hear.  Keep up the good work.  I'll be at 5 years in November.  I'm working this body pretty hard and 99% of the time I can't even tell that I'm a bilateral hippy.  Every once in a rare while I feel something in my left glutes.  Rest of the time, I can't even tell.

it is so great to get our lives back and be able to be active, enjoy life, and be pain free!
