The weather was incredible today. Around 4:30pm Kev and I went out for ~32:00 easy, rolling minutes. We were trying to find Steven’s Creek trail but got lost (wrong turn somewhere) and ended up running along roads. Which was fine, there was a lot of tree shade and the clouds lessened the sun. Humidity was just right, dat cross-farms park feel.
I like getting lost.
We were both feeling a little less than perfect but the weather made up for it. Kev’s calves are a bit sore from breaking in his new adis. The top of my left foot has been giving me a little grief; I’m only a tiny bit worried because I unwisely upped my mileage abruptly this week. Hopefully it’s just a bruise or something and not something drastic (a stress fracture). Probably taking off tomorrow or going for an easy ~20-25.
Yesterday I went for ~30:00 right after lunch (partly to see what it would feel like to picnic atop the hill at that time). Realized my hill is a lot prettier late in the day, maybe 4:30pm and after.
Lunch was pho with the housemates (which is quickly becoming a post-drinking tradition) and dinner was ramen with Kev, Lehsah, Paco & Ritchie. So many soup noodles!
Excited. Tomorrow is going to be ~70 at noon and I have a picnic planned! Over the course of the past week I’ve slowly amassed random picnic goods as I found them because I figured the weather was going to be nice. As it turns out many picnic goods can double as camping goods! Which is also exciting! Now I just need to purchase a tent and lanterns.
The house is very camping-positive with the exception of KP, who has an irrational (fear? hatred?) distaste for camping. One of these days we will kidnap him on an outing and he will understand the joys of sleeping in the woods.
