Falling into bed after a long weekend – must have been a good one

You know it has been a good long weekend, when you fall into bed utterly exhausted from the weekend’s adventures. We took Friday off making it a four day weekend. So Friday we (including daughter #2) hiked up Ha Ling Peak (800m vertical) – 5 hour round trip of slow hiking due to the steepness. Saturday I drove daughter #1 to camp for the day and then ran 26 km in the driving rain. Sunday I ran 16 km doing hill repeats, went to church, and then did errands all afternoon with daughter #1. On Monday I ran 12km with 700m of vertical in the mountains, mowed the lawn, and then went on a geocaching bike ride with daughters #1 and #2.

Then late on Monday afternoon I had a sneezing fit and sniffles that lasted much of the evening and night which exhausted whatever I had left in me.

Tuesday I kept it a little easier and even drove to work for a change. I need to rest up to prepare for next weekend so we can do it again.
