I'm going to start running again this week!
After a couple minutes on a treadmill this morning, I was completely pain-free in my right hip.
My trainer at the gym and I had a joke, that when I was ready to start running again, I'd send him an e-mail with the subject line "!!!!!!!!", just from the excitement of being able to run again.
In the meantime, I think I've maintained my level of fitness well, with spinning classes, kickboxing, and the elliptical trainer.
The timing is good -- I can look forward to an early season triathlon, maybe???
