After talking with a couple of different ortho doctors yesterday and spending a lot of time thinking about and researching - I have made a decision to give up running.
This is a very difficult decision for me. My hips and knees can no longer take the strain and impact - even with very good shoes. Both doctors have suggested to me that I continue to walk and ride my bike for exercise as these are easier on my joints. I will eventually have to have all 4 joints replaced, but will be able to put it off a little longer this way.
I will continue to be active, I will just be finding lots of different ways to do it. How much fun I will have finding new activities to enjoy!!!!!
Have a Sparktastic Day Friends.
