And don’t feel too bad for me.  I’m still having a pretty good day.  After two days of doing my personal rendition of a peg-legged pirate I can now fully extend my leg!  It’s the little victories.

I suppose I should have taken more than one day off from running considering, but there is such a thing as running cabin fever…and I had it bad.
