Good morning, friends!
Boy, was I sore yesterday after Sunday’s Tobacco Road Half Marathon! I’m still pretty sore today! Normal walking is okay, but going down stairs? Yikes. Scary sight:
I definitely utilized the hobby/sideways shuffle down the stairs approach. Thankfully, though, I’m just super sore — nothing hurts or feels injured at all! I think all those lateral leg/hip strengthening moves I’ve been doing really paid off.
I had a busy day at school yesterday and stuck around after class until about 4ish so I could get some work done with less distractions. I should probably do that more often — I was a lot more productive not being at home, and I got a ton of work done, which was great because I had plans for a fun dinner with my high school friend Hilary.
Hilary and I hit up one of our favorites in the area — Akai Hana in Carrboro. I always come to this place when the weather is nice because they have a really nice, big outdoor patio! I’ve come here a lot lately since it’s been so warm, and last night was no exception —gorgeous evening for it.
We both started with a glass of wine. Chardonnay? Don’t mind if I do!
We also shared some edamame to start while chatting away.
For our main course, we did our usual — picked out 4 sushi rolls to share!
We had an eel/avocado roll, a spicy tuna roll, a salmon roll, and another more complicated one I can’t remember. They were all amazing — this was probably my favorite combination of the sushi we’ve had at this place!
Yum. I also love that this place isn’t pricey — for two glasses of wine each, one order of edamame, and 4 sushi rolls, we both only paid like $25 — win!
Thanks for the fun night, Hilary!
Early this morning I decided to take a nice shake-out walk around the neighborhood while studying some notes for our comprehensive exams. A few classmates and I are starting review sessions twice per week, starting today — gotta prepare!
I enjoyed a nice 40 minute walk around some of the trails near our house. I’m going to miss these when we move!
Time to pack lunch, pack yoga clothes (I’m hitting up a low-key class this evening), and head off to school!
Have a great day, friends!
