Out of Coffee

I'm out of coffee beans. GAH! And I'm catching the sniffles. double GAH! But John took first yesterday at the wrestling meet. Oh YEAH!

I knocked out a huge run yesterday. The temp was about 20, absolutely no wind, sunny and only 2-3 cars. Perfection. McRib was my SAG for the first few miles in the event I needed to shed some clothes and I headed out only 30 min after I woke up, and I did not fuel for such a long run. I had a SPARK, but no food. At mile 5 I took a GU. It was awesome. I had an expresso flavored GU and because it was so cold it had thickened. It was like eating a real gooey caramel. YUM!

I really felt the no fueling the 2nd half of the run as I needed some major cow bell at mile 9. But I made it, obviously without the cow bell, showered, made some pancakes and headed off to the Y for a 2 hour spin. Overall, it was a great day!
Today's workout: 1000 yd swim, 3 mile run, 20 mile bike ride, weights. RUN ON!

I wouldn't be able to handle no coffee! But the espresso gu sounds good.

Love the new look with three columns! Great job on the run. I usually don't eat too much before a long run and I know that feeling of needing something to keep me going!

Running out of coffee is the worst thing in the world. At least it feels that way at the time!

It's been beautiful weather like that out here lately too. I hope it lasts a while... I'm so not ready for spring and then summer.
