Get Yer Mitts Off My Java!
Much more alarming than the swim assessment was the chat we had before starting with some stretches. The Puppeteer came in holding a cup of coffee.....
Me: Did you get me one?
TP: No, do you want some of mine?
Me: No thanks, just kidding
TP: How many coffees do you drink a day?
Me: I guess I pour about four good sized cups, but after the first one I rarely finish a cup before it goes cold
TP: Make it three tops! It interferes with your calcium absorption......
Gulp..... do I really have to cut down on my precious coffee? Quel horreur!
Now we'll see how serious I really am about this whole training thing! I have happily been prepared to cut down on the alcohol, but coffee as well? It's just not civilized! Cruel and unusual punishment!
Ah well, I guess I'll give it a go and keep you posted, but this one may turn into a fight. Given that a lot of people think that all this training is "stupid", surely I should be drinking MORE coffee?.....
