The weekend in Atlantic City was a success! We celebrated my bff Lauren’s birthday and it was amazing. En route to AC I googled some places to eat dinner on the trusty iphone. We made reservations for an asian restaurant called Buddakan and it had great reviews so we hoped we were in for a treat. Once we got there it was beautiful! A giant Buddha in the middle, the ceiling looked like a night sky, and the interiors seemed as if you were in a chinese village. I was immediately in love.
The food was delicious! A few of us split the edamame raviolis which were to die for. They were creamy and I didn’t want them to ever end.
For my entree I split the pad thai with Megan. We left feeling satisfied, not overly stuffed and loved every bite.
The rest of the night was filled with laughing, dancing, wine, and friends. Nothing better for a birthday celebration! HAPPY 24th BIRTHDAY LAUR 🙂 LOVE YOU TIMES A BAJILLION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
On the running front….
yesterday I was walking Eden and decided to try and jog for a few seconds to see how the knee felt. I instantly felt pain and felt as though my knee was going to twist again.
I’ve thought about it, and i’m going to also take this week off to let it completely heal. It’s still really sore and needs to be iced so this week i’ll get back to yoga, but no running. Then it’s Costa Rica for a week! When I get back from Costa Rica i’ll start up running again. The cherry blossom 10 miler gives you a training plan for free when you register, and it doesn’t even start until the beginning of Feb, so I think it will be smart if I wait until I get home on the 22nd to pick up running again. Then I won’t have the thoughts in the back of my mind of if i’m going to sprain it again by running on it too soon. I think it’s better to nurse it now, rather than letting it get hurt closer to race time and upping my chances of injury. I’m excited to do some yoga and am hoping that it will also help in stretching out my knee some. yoga to the rescue 🙂
