My back is nearly 100% recovered! I even did a little rowing on the machine today before biking and it didn’t seem to aggravate my back at all. I firmly believe that my daily hour of intense cardio has helped my mending process (in addition to a lot of ice). Thanks everyone, for your various forms of advice.
kitchen tutorial: pad thai
I spent a couple of hours cooking in the kitchen tonight without any back trouble, so I know things are nearly back to normal. I made Thai food. Here’s one of the dishes:
soak rice noodles in water until pliable
salted turnip can be bought in any asian grocery store
minced garlic, chili powder, green onions, eggs, ground dried shrimp, tamarind concentrate, lime juice, salted turnips, rice noodles, bean sprouts, unsalted peanuts, fish sauce
sauté garlic in hot oil until golden
