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.
