Man, I’ve missed cardio. Seven months after my half marathon (mistake), I can finally say that my knee is basically fully healed and I can now run and hike and yoga without any hindrances. Well, still taking it easy on my knees in yoga (virasana and related postures) but this week I ran 2.5 miles and hiked 5 miles without any issues. Hurrah! Thank you, body, for doing what you do even though it took awhile. I’m only getting older though, so I think it’s time to be more careful with my body, since it’s only going to take longer and longer to heal these types of injuries from now on. 😐
Tomorrow’s Mother’s Day, so I’m throwing a celebratory brunch at the house for all the extended family, with all the next generation too. I’m making roasted potatoes, french toast, avocado toast, cinnamon rolls, coffee cake, bacon, omelettes, and eggs-of-all-kinds. Except poached, I’m not really into poached eggs. Also I’m making cold brew coffee, though it’s taking forever to drip, and I’m not sure if I did it correctly… but coffee drinkers will be coffee drinkers, so I’m not too worried heh.
Anyway, other than work and yoga, not much is going on lately. Stanley and I threw a 2016 birthday party at our new place, and I’d say it was a total success! For future reference, we made tacos, and made about 12-16 cups “sides” (slaw, corn, kimchi), and ended up cooking about 9 lb of meat for about 20 attendees. More seating would probably be nice, but our space was big enough to fit everyone seated on the ground like true Asians. Looking forward to next year’s birthday party already!!!
