So, yeah, I was supposed to go to my last physical therapy session today. Until I decided to have an awesome run yesterday and went and got my shin all irritated again. So after $70 in co-pays, $80 for new running shoes, and a month and a half after I stopped running in August, I'm back where I started.

At least the run was worth it. It really was awesome. I had a lot of fun and felt great. It was a short 3 miles, so I kept at a pretty quick pace for most of the time. I felt strong and like I had a nice stride with quick foot turn-over. I had to slow down from that pace a few times because I was out of breath, but was able to bring it back up again and really felt good. The shin didn't start to hurt until after I was done.

My physical therapy was consisting of massage and exercises to increase the flexibility in my ankle. Today they did some ultrasound massage too. The entertaining thing was, before deciding to do it, the therapist asked how old I was, since they don't use ultrasound on teenagers. Come on. Do I really look like I'm still a teenager? Really?

So I'm not allowed to run more than 2 miles at a time for now. I have two physical therapy sessions scheduled for next week. We'll see how it goes...

I don't want to end on a sad or frustrated note, so here's a massively fluffy angora rabbit that I cannot look at without laughing:

Are you laughing yet? Because I find it hilarious. And adorable. Which reminds me, there was a commercial on TV yesterday that was totally making fun of me. It was filled with fluffy bunnies dressed up in cute outfits, and high-pitched voices were in the background singing "Oh so sweet." My reaction was "OMG look how cute and sweet!", when a deep, sarcastic voice interrupted the singing saying, "You know what's sweet? Winning a million bucks after only paying 1 dollar. That's sweet." It was so making fun of me. Oh well. :-)

Ugh that really stinks about your injury. :( I'm sorry!

On another note, that picture killed me. WHAT THE HECK! The things people post amaze me.
