I've been recovering this week. Except for Tuesday when I did a speed session. Probably not the smartest thing to do after my weekend of running. I was a bit sore (left hamstring, both adducters and a little muscle in my left arm that I think was from carrying my empty gel wrapper a couple of k to the nearest water stop and bin) and a lot tired. And I stupidly thought that Coach Chris would go easy on us. I've been regretting my diligence ever since and am doing no running at all until at least next Tuesday.
So since I can't run I've had to shift focus to the other love of my life. No, that's not my husband (although he deserves big kudos for being such a great support last weekend) And it's not my boys. Or the dogs. Or even the chooks. It's coffee!!
Last week I mentioned that my usual coffee shop was closing. This week it's shut! I walked past its empty lifeless corpse on Monday and had a moment's silence. Never more will I quench my thirst with its wonderful elixir. I am desolate! And I am also in search of a new coffee shop. So far this week I've tried two. The first has an inconvenient location, but the price was right, the service efficient and the coffee was good. The second was way more convenient, way more busy, way more expensive and had way worse coffee. So do I go for convenience over flavour - hell no!! Contestant number one definitely has my vote. I think I've found my new place.
