Hi, I used to walk up until Sept 06 (I lost my weight that way) I walked 5 miles a day and sometimes added a bike ride. My top was 12 miles walk/ride.
Then I took a break for vacation, then winter rains then spring rains blah blah..now whenever I start to walk it hurts!
I have been having hip pain for about 10 years but now it stops me from walking.
I went to the Dr thinking it was osteo arthritis, like my mother, but instead it is bursitis.
I am a wuss when it comes to shots, so I want to wait a bit before getting a cortizone shot in the hips. I am facing surgery in a couple of weeks for my bunion (I'm scared!) and I know I will need to start walking again.
My question is, does anyone here have hip problems that slows them down?
How do you push past it, and what is a good time or mileage to limit yourself to, to prevent pain?
