So, this weekend was a bit nuts. I kinda overdid it a bit, actually.
Friday night, I went out to a ritual up in San Francisco with foxgrrl
. We ran over to San Rafael to hang out with whimsywanderer
afterwards. We were out there until 2:30 AM. I finally got back home around 3:30 AM or so...
Saturday morning, I woke up around 8AM and went on a 5 hour, 12-15 mile bike ride with viesti
It was actually a bike ride/geocaching hunt, so we were stopping here and there to look around and poke aorund in the dirt. It was still killer though. By the third hour, my perineum was killing me on that seat.
We got back around 1PM, and I crashed for a few hours, watching TV and eating food and cuddling with tarathene
, who are still staying over. Around 7:00PM, I took off for viesti
's place where she and her family were throwing a gaming party with a bunch of friends. Of course, I rode my bike the 4.3 miles to her place. It took quite a while since my body was already super-exhausted...
I got to her place and hung out for a few hours, but by 11pm, I had passed out. I had a little bit of dinner, but not much, really. I think I was just drained. I woke around 2:30AM, slipped into bed with viesti
and slept until 7AM.
On Sunday, around 7AM, I woke up and rode my bike back the 4.3 miles to home, where I jumped in my car, drove to Fremont, and met up with my friend David to go hiking and mushroom hunting up at Point Reyes. I got some AWESOME photos up there, which you can find in the album below:
I also pulled my pic-a-day from there:
Unfortunately, we didn't get up there until noon, and we had about a 10 mile hike with a 1000 ft. ascent to deal with before getting back. We had little time to dilly dally as we hoofed it down the trail before our light gave out. We managed to get back to the car JUST as twilight was hitting around 6:45pm. We did find a few interesting mushrooms that David took back to identify, but only on the second half of the hike when we were really pressed for time. We would have found a lot more if we weren't walking so fast.
By the time we reached the car, my feet were in pain, my calves were in pain, my gluteus maximus was in pain, my hips were hurting, I was sunburnt, I had gotten stung by stinging nettle, and I had slivers in my hand. I was really in bad shape. On the drive home, my GLaDOS GPS system decided to take us the wrong way down a winding highway that added some really extreme nausea to my experience. Did I mention that I was starving due to not eating lunch that day?
We finally made it back to David's house around 8:45 pm. I was nearly passing out and aching so bad that I could barely move, so I rested there for an hour or so until I felt good enough to press on and head home.
I got home, watched some House, snuggled with my house guests, ate some food, got nauseous, and passed out around 1AM.
Today, I am sore as all hell...
A wonderful weekend, but I think I might have overdone it *just* a bit... :P
