I'm almost 4 months post-op and that means I can jog and jump and things like that. Actually, I've been jogging since I was given the okay at 12 weeks or 3 months. I'm getting my speed back and I can comfortably run about 6.5 km. I think I could run more, but I don't want to push too hard. I've also started lightly break dancing again and it feels great :) I missed dancing so much. As for my progress in physio, my extension is fine, but my knee flexion is not quite there yet. I think the problem is my patellar tendon. The area is numb and it also feels tight. I think the tightness is preventing me from bending farther. My leg muscle is coming back, but it's still skinnier than the other one. Hahaha. I think running has helped bring it back. Now that I can skip rope, I hope it will improve even more.
I returned these babies too. Good bye crutches! May I never need you again!
I didn't really celebrate Halloween, but I am proud of my costume, which was a slice of pizza :)
I went to Asakusa to have dinner with my soccer coach. We went to a restaurant on the Sumida River. It was beautiful and you could see the poop building, which was all lit up.
We also went to Sensōji, where I got a fortune. Recently I've had a slew of bad fortunes, and this one was no exception...
Surprises in the mail:
Over the past month or so, I have received lots of surprises. I got a package from a friend, another from a former student, and one from my aunt! I even received a letter from my Granma! I love receiving mail, so this was soooo exciting for me :)
I have been baking and cooking a lot. Here are some of my recent projects:
Soy flour and pumpkin pie muffins... These were sooooo good!
Tokyo's first November snow in 54 years!!
On November 24 it snowed! It was the first November snowfall in a long time and it was beautiful!
I couldn't believe my eyes! Good bye November, you were fun!
