Stayed with the program okay for a hangover day. I had brined a brisket and made pastrami. It was delicious. Not quite as good as Katz’s in NYC but it was only my second try. What I lack in expertise can be made up for in portion, so I took two pieces of rye bread and sauerkraut (delicious and legal) and made a reuben that was bigger than a cat.
The rye bread was one transgression; I also drank two beers – father’s little helper – to get me past the night before.
I rode the stationary bike for a half hour at a speed slightly higher than reverse. You have to start somewhere.
