More Running

I didn't sleep well last night... and overslept this morning. I woke up feeling groggy and disoriented. I couldn't bring myself to hurry, I was only able to move around like a sloth. 

On my way to work, I started craving an energy drink so hard I almost stopped at a supermarket to get one. At the office, the first thing I did was get a cup of instant cappucino. And then another.

At lunch, I gave in to my craving and bought that stupid energy drink. I finished half of it before my bad conscience kicked it.

At that point, while I was wondering if I was slowly developing into a caffeine addict, I remembered that I had read an interesting article about caffeine and energy drinks at Nerd Fitness - The Ultimate Guide To Caffeine.  I finished my energy drink and have stayed away from caffeine since then (but I have been thinking about cappucino the whole time).

However, when I arrived home, I took Flo for a walk and decided to run afterwards. I ran approx. one mile without stopping. Yippieh! 

Unfortunately, I seem to have laced my shoes too tight and now have a hurting spot right on top of my left foot. Grrr. Go away, pain! You keep me from feeling good about my achievements!

I didn't check my weight this morning and won't do so before tomorrow morning in hopes of me having dropped another 200 to 500 grams...


  1. I don't know what energy drinks in Germany, but in the U.S. a few teenagers died after drinking too many energy drinks, and some people filed lawsuits against the companies.

  2. We've got a similar selection of energy drinks here. I've heard about those deaths.
