    Long term effects of running with hip osteoarthritis
    simobk posted:
    Hi all, [br>[br>I am 33yo and have hip osteoarthritis. I started running 2 months ago, and globally, the weight loss lessened my pain. [br>[br>Sometimes though, it can hurt a lot and running over it just makes it worse. Last week, my hip was just begging me to stop after 300ft, but I pushed 5 miles on it. I was in pain for the next two days, but am now back to normal and running. [br>[br>I don't mind that "occasional" pain and can deal with it, but am scared of any long term effects of running on it. [br>[br>Any knowledgeable people willing to share their opinions? [br>[br>Thanks, [br>[br>Simo [br>[br>PS: For a little history, I haven't exercised in 15 years. A little bit over 2 months ago, I promised myself that I'd run an IronMan for my 35th birthday, so I started running, swimming, biking and very little strength training. I am 5'8" and went from around 190lbs to 177kgs.
