Then I started thinking about the timing of the effect, and the only thing that was really different was that I started making my morning coffee with a press instead of drip. I ran into Brady and Leah tonight and Brady seems to think the added boost from the coffee press could well be the culprit. High heart rate, high blood pressure, basically not good stuff. So it's goodbye Bodum starting tomorrow. Heck, I think it'll pretty much be goodbye coffee. I've cut way back on it in the past, resorting to green tea instead. No big deal. Oddly I've had some cramping issues too, probably from the more potent coffee brew.
Regardless, I still got out tonight for round two of intervals. Max intensity hill repeats. Starting from the Ponca Hills F.D. up to the Shipley Cemetery. Man I forgot how much these things hurt, considering it's been well over 5 years since I last attempted them. The first week is always the hardest.
Busted out the leg warmers and went Euro PRO CX style with the socks on the outside. Thank you Sven, Neils and Styby.
