Jet-lag, Coffee & an AM run

Up for most of the night as we just got back from London last evening but pushed on until 10pm or so to try and reset the body clocks. I finally gave up around 5 or so and headed down to brew up so java to shake off the cobwebs. Ticked off a 1 hour base run after a few cups. 255 days!

Just having another cup and a nibble and off to face day at work.

  3. well, today's was actually on the tread as it was still pretty dark/cold and eventually just overcast in the wee hours. But i prefer outdoors as much as possible. today was just a debate over sleeping in and running later and then just deciding i was up and the tread is just down in the cave.

    i grind and brew it in a cuisinart coffee maker that's named the same (grind & brew) – how appropriate eh? i usually set it up to automatically go the night before if it's a really early / long am session (which these really haven't been).

    I drink coffee before these to not only get me going but to hopefully rid myself any unplanned stops before i even leave the house or start out on the tread. I carry out the same intake of java on training days as i do on race days to get it down to a schedule… but as you can guess it also takes into account the time, density, type, and amount of food taken in the previous evening.

    but, i sometimes run on the northern westchester rail trail if i think the roads are dangerous weather/visibility-wise as we don't have real shoulders here, and in doing that I pass an NYSC (@ about the 5 or 8mi or whatever mark – depending how you loop it) that we belong to in the event of any unplanned needs arise (hydration, facilities, etc) but haven't had the real need to do so yet. this lends some comfort if you aren't so sure and you can keep lapping it if you fear for the worst. 😉
