3 day weekend

How I have been fiending for this three day weekend.  Last Monday, I woke up and even though I knew there was a full 5 days of soul-sucking crap in store for me, I was still full of the bluebird of happiness.  And by Friday, I was jumping out of my skin.

Here it is!  I’m in the midst of three day weekend!

We tried to go to a cherry festival yesterday, but it turns out that it was really just a band playing in the parking lot of a strip mall in Sunnyvale outside of a little produce market store.  They were at least selling cherries, but for about $10 a pound.  So we crossed the parking lot and went into Borders, bought some books and had lunch at Chipotle.  Suh-weet.

I did my second Day 3 of Week 3 in the Couch to 5K “run” today.  Actually, I did it twice.  I think I was running pretty darned slowly, but whatevs.  This week’s task was 90 seconds on, 90 seconds off, 3 minutes on, 3 minutes off, two times.  So all told, I did 4 x 3 minutes of running and 5 x 90 seconds running.
And then, The David and I went to Redwood Regional Park to do a little exploring.  I’d been saying for a while that I wanted to get to know our parks better, so we went out without quite knowingwhat we were doing, and ended up doing a 2 and 1/2 hour loop with a bitching amount of uphill huffing.  It was really pretty and the birds were very chirpy and I think it was all very good.  But man, it kicked my ass.  God help me tomorrow when I try to get back on the treadmill for Day 1 of Week 4.

And oh yes, tomorrow.  Sweet, sweet tomorrow.  Another day without the horribleness.  Another day of sleeping until I feel like waking up!  Another day of so much time with my sweet boy.  Another day of sunshiney goodness and infinite possibility.
