Jack sipped his namesake, then turned up the cheap hotel glassware, draining the contents in a gulp before resting the glass atop his tupperware.

He chuckled at the little stack of plastic bowls. He had meal prepped for this trip with all the good intentions of a habitual dieter. Then the business went bad, and the diet with it. The healthy habits landed in the trash can, while he landed in all the local dives eating slop and drinking worse.

He poured another drink as he packed. There’s always next week, he thought. I’ll do better then.

#weekendcoffeeshare 5-8-16

If we were having coffee, I would be drinking something new from the Keurig machine today. Cafe Verona, a dark roast from Starbucks, is on brew today. I picked it up from the grocery earlier today, and it’s pretty darn good. Won’t you have a cup? 

Coffee not your thing?  That’s okay. I’m sure we have something else. Maybe a nice tea or hot cocoa. Help yourself.

Last week was pretty good. On the running front, I had several morning runs, but nothing over three miles. The lack of mileage is just a bit of a disappointment, as I had hoped for a long run later in the week that never happened.

Saturday was a rest day after my hardest workout of the week Friday morning. Friday’s workout involved lots of sprinting and tire flipping. It went like this. A one hundred yard Sprint followed by twenty tire flips, repeated until 120 tire flips were done and over a mile of sprints were logged. What a workout!

Today, I logged two miles in the trails, 20 burpees, 10 tire flips, and a rope climb. Not bad, but not the best. Tonight, I’ll do a bit of meal prep and get some good sleep for tomorrow’s morning run. I’m looking for my best week in a long time this week. Hopefully, my mileage will be up a bit and that long run will happen.

Running in the morning isn’t always easy, but it’s always worth it. Hope you guys have a great week. God bless!
