The hike today was FANTASTIC. No, that doesn’t sum it up fully. It was FAN-BLOODY-TASTIC.
I’m wiped from hiking 12km over 4 hours, which may not sound like a lot, but when you’re hiking at a pretty pace up a hill of 45 degrees, it’s a damn good workout. My body still hurts from Friday’s training session and this has pushed me over the edge. It was great. I never thought I would say that but here am I and loving hiking. It was a perfect day – hot but not too hot, a bit of a breeze and a clear sky. I didn’t get sun-burnt or bitten by bugs and I met some awesome people.
It’s hilarious – I met a girl with a shockingly similar name to mine, who live 2 buildings over from me ON MY STREET, and with whom I share a weird number of similarities. We kept poking one another and asking “are you sure you’re not me?” Very weird but great. I have a new friend which is exactly what I wanted to achieve today.
I really don’t want to go back to work tomorrow after a great weekend. I’m so tired but it’s a good tired. I really want to continue this feeling for a bit longer. I don’t want to face reality but alas, reality is approaching. I have a meeting first thing in the morning which will be interesting but I’ll manage.
I hope everyone else had a great weekend and has a great week coming up!
