Bad Coffee

Things I’ve learnt the past few days:

24 hours of sleep does wonders for the complexion. Okay, you might not get a glowing complexion, more like zero bags.

Always listen to your mother when she says be careful what you wish for. You might just get it, but not how you wanted it.

Last Friday evening I ate or drank something that didn’t agree with me. Coffee and peanut butter sandwich I had to defend off a headache. Friday, I said I wanted a weekend of just me and the cats. There was another Spartan Training session the following day, which I really wasn’t keen to attend yet felt I had to. I wanted to be ‘fresh’ so to speak for this weeks race, but at the same time I didn’t want to miss out on any tips and advice.

I got my weekend with the cats. Whatever I ate kept me up all night throwing up. I missed watching or being kept awake by a fantastic thunderstorm in the wee hours of Saturday morning. I know it was an impressive storm as it lit the bathroom up while as I worshipped the porcelain god.

Zero burpees Saturday. By 1pm I’d made it from the bed to the sofa. 3pm I had enough energy to feed the cats their breakfast. 6pm I just had it in me to clear up their piles of sick from eating plants as they tried to feed themselves breakfast. 9pm some pieces of toast and out until 2am before giving the cats their dinner and moving back to bed.

Sunday, energy nearly restored with some odd vivid at times disturbing dreams, no bags under my eyes for the first time since the last time I was out for 24 hours (March), back to eating, kinda, can’t face veggies, but no running. Chores, a bike ride to and walk around the zoo, yoga and more zzzz. Hence no Weekend Friday Favourites, no sea run view, no 3-4 x 30 burpees, just what I asked for, a weekend with the cats. But not how I envisioned.

Listen to your mother. Sometimes she can be right. Except mine didn’t say a bad cup of coffee can make you ill detox.

Everything lately has been coming back to organutans. This guy/girl was how I felt Saturday.

When was the last time you were ill or had zero eye bags?! Have a great week!
