Today I got to hang out with my friend Anna! We started off the day with 9am mass and had some breakfast walking around the Campbell Farmers Market. We had some good Hawaiian sliders, some organic juices, and tried some clam chowders and crepes. I also bought some fresh fruit and she got some cold brewed coffee. Good times!
For today since I had the car I wanted to go see some of the botanical gardens in the area, so I picked the two Japanese Gardens in the area. I took my coworker Chris with me since we enjoyed the Japanese garden in SF. The free one in San Jose was nice, but the one in Saratoga was pretty spectacular.
After a short but good workout at the gym, then a 10 minute cardio video at the hotel, it was time for some dinner. I have been craving pho all week, so I finally got some tonight!
After a good workout yesterday, my legs and lower back were still sore, so I took the chance to try my Xbox Fitness workout for the second consecutive day. This time I did the Power Yoga workout.
So today I restarted my training for my half marathons coming up in a short three months. So to start it off I tried a new app today. I don’t think it worked but I might not have set it up correctly. I didn’t have any zombies chase me. I’ll retry later this week.
Sometimes a busy week of work, followed by a busy weekend of hiking, then a Monday before a deadline just gets you so tired. That is me today! So guess what I did after work?
Today I invited a couple coworkers with me to go to Muir Woods to go for a hike and take some pictures over at the Golden Gate Bridge. We did a nice little 1.5 mile hike and back in the woods for some awesome and fun views of the forest and reached just below the canopies of the trees. Then headed over to Marin Headlands for a few photo opportunities.
Back to it! After a couple days of work and being busy, I had no car and was relaxing while waiting on laundry so I started painting my secret project. I made some significant progress, but stumbled a little bit by rushing.
Today I got to hangout with some old coworkers that recently moved up here to the Bay Area for work. So after I got out of work I met up with them and checked out their new apartment. That is where we played Settlers of Catan for my first time. It was pretty fun!
Guess what pulled into our parking lot today at lunch time? FOOD TRUCKS! There were only two so the lines got pretty long. There was a Twister Burrito truck and I don’t remember what the other one was.
