On this, my 2nd real week of training for Augusta, I’m finding that I’m super thankful for caffeine. I am not sure how I will ever train for a full IM because I currently feel like I work out more than I sleep. I know this isn’t the case and I’m being dramatic and as I get further into the training it’ll all click. I’m readjusting to the early morning workouts.
I actually put a caffeinated Nuun in my Powerade Zero this morning. Surprisingly, Kona Kola is delicious mixed with grape Powerade. It’s like a grape soda! (Listen, it was 5 AM, I was a zombie. Don’t judge me.)
I’m also thankful for social media because I can complain at length about being tired and “woe is me I have a functioning healthy body and must work out” and I always have people to commiserate with or receive giant eye rolls from. These people keep me honest and if it’s my family, they sometimes tell me to shut the hell up. Always nice to get a kick in the butt.
I’m thankful that the weekend is thisclose. AND we’re riding hills AND my long run is back up to….wait for it…six miles! I’m so looking forward to running a wee bit of distance again. Don’t worry, I’m taking it easy. Again, many apologies toes.
Currently lots of stuff to be thankful for in the life o’ B.o.B. Yay!
What are you thankful for today?
Love me some kitties! You keep kicking butt over there because it makes me want to kick butt over here. 🙂
SIX MILES!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You celebrate that shit Boo, you've been out a long time!!!!!!!!

HOORAY for Half IM training in all it's ass kicking glory!
So I can put a Nuun in my BEvERage?????
Way to go girl! I didn't know they made caffeinated Nuun. Yum!!
Yay to running again! Yeah this training stuff is almost like a second job! 🙂
I hear you about the working out more than sleeping, and I'm just marathon training. Some of this stuff really monopolizes the time bank.
Good luck with your long run this weekend! Woot! Woot! And your ride in San Ann. I am thankful for all the athletes I know who continually remind me of the benefits and rewards that come with hard training and who lead by example. The camaraderie keeps me going. Notice I am popping in to read your blog more often? It's because I am getting on Daily Mile, um, daily, to log my workouts, and then I scroll down and BAM, there is BoB's awesome blog! 🙂 Thanks for writing!
I love the Kola one, but the bubbles always bothered my stomach :/
Wendy won't let me train for an IM (full for sure, probably 1/2 either) because she knows she'd never see me again. You
