Monday Mario

The adorable rabbits of Furry Butts recently showed off their Olympic potential with their superb "Synchronized Chillaxation." Mario lacks a dance partner but would like to open up requests to join another rabbit for the 2012 games. For your inspection, he would like to showcase his perfected toe point. Note how he keeps his legs firmly together for the entire duration of the Chillaxation.

Thanks, everyone for the well-wishes and advice. After my short run Friday I decided it would be best to take some more time off. Since then, my leg is feeling much, much better. My calf muscle has been tight/sore so I've been tending to that the last few days. I've read that tight calf muscles can sometimes cause shin pain so I'm hoping that is what I'm dealing with. The actual shin pain has significantly improved and today I can bounce up and down on my left leg with no pain. I am going into running withdrawal and can't wait to get back out there.

And an exciting, news breaking development: There is a giant bug flying around the apartment right now. I can't get a good enough look at it to decide whether it is the world's biggest fly or a bee. I did however take a running sprint down our hallway to close the bedroom door to keep it from infiltrating the sleeping chambers. During that 7 second sprint...No pain! Hey, it's a start.

Lovely ballerina toes! Mario is well set for the 2012 Olympics ;) Our Hans is still lacking a partner at the moment, but I think Mario would prefer to 'sync' with a girl-bun, lol! Hope Mario finds the right partner soon.

Glad to hear your legs are feeling better. You should try Mario's position, it might help the calf muscles!

I would highly recommend ART to help you out with tight calves and shin pain. I had such a frustrating time at the beginning of the year because every run hurt so badly. A few rounds of active release helped a lot. Good luck!

Not sure but there might be an Individual Chillaxin' event, Mario would get the judge's attention with those perfect toes. From an acupuncturist's point of view; don't use ice if your calves are tight, it will make them worse, try some Moxa and/or Epsom salt soaks.

The toe point is indeed Olympics worthy!

Good job on keeping the bee/fly out of the bedroom! See, all of that running has been good for something =:-)
