May has been a tough month. I thought April was bad. But May is the everything-going-wrong-at-once-and-there’s-nothing-you-can-do-about-it sort of bad. I can’t even go running to relieve the stress because on Sunday I tore something in my knee. I did a new yoga routine that morning and I must have stretched something a little too much, because the first step I took running I felt something sharp, but since I never learn form the past, I kept on going. For 5 miles. I thought it would be okay, but by that night I couldn’t put weight on my right leg. However, I’m proud to say that I managed to bike to work the next day with the help of a Chinese herbal plaster, and I have been hobbling around with great facility for the last few days. The only problem is, I’m not stupid enough to go running again until my knee improves markedly. I’m pretty sure it was the yoga, not the running, that hurt my knee. I’m so flexible that I don’t ever feel things until too late.
I’ve been cooking a lot, though, mostly curry and cookies. Maybe one day soon I’ll start posting about food again.
