Coffee and a Winner

I'm headed to my six-mile run and I'm testing something new. I'm going to see if coffee really does reduce pain as I read recently. A thing in The Other Mag suggested drinking coffee 30-60 minutes before a tough workout, so I'll be sipping some coffee on my way out to Long Beach. I'm looking forward to the run. I had wanted to make a playlist and everything but I didn't get around to it so I'll have to figure something out. Oh well. Might go with the Cash-Metallica combo.

And speaking of Metallica, the winner is...

Raoulysgirl's choice of Enter Sandman by Metallica is the song I will sing and post right here. I was worried that I'd have to sing Bootylicious. That would have been pretty bad but I don't think I'll make anyone forget about James Hetfield.

We'll see how it goes. I hope I'm able to post the video soon, tomorrow would be best, but it'll be up at some point.

Meanwhile, here's what I'll be facing tonight. Let's all sing along!

Have a good run!
I always drink coffee before runs, I wonder if it really does help.

I was pulling for Kid Rock, but I think Enter Sandman is a good choice for you.

The coffee/pain relief connection is interesting. I'm anxious to hear your results. I'm a huge fan of coffee!!!

Willoughby, I think the coffee helped. I whacked my knee on accident in the morning, in the kitchen. It's tender right now, a few hours after the run and it hurt when I hit it but I didn't feel it much during the run. The coffee might have had something to do with keeping the knee from hurting too much. So now I can throw coffee into the pre-run rotation :)
