Nothing right now.

Keep on running.

Chase is a Cubs fan and they were playing the Diamondbacks last night so we went to the game. We live 3 hours from Phoenix.  Of course he wanted to stay till the end. Since it was late and I wanted to stay awake I took a 5 Hour Energy as we were about to head home. Let me tell you, it worked. We got home at 1:30 and I was wide awake. I layed in bed and read until I got drowsy and fell asleep about 2:30. Then I woke back up at 4:30 feeling completely awake. I layed there and tried to go back to sleep, but gave up at 5:15 and headed to the gym for a run. 

TM- 5 miles at 7mph then got bored with that and started a progression run over the next 5 miles, ending at 10mph. 

Now I'm home and showered and still feeling wired. I'm sure I will crash soon and get a few hour nap. 

Oh and the Cubs won.

Thank so Dan.

I'm an Astros fan myself. They sure have had a rough week.

Cool, just going to a MLB game is fun! If I took one of those 5 hour energy things it would probably kill me! Hows that stuff going to effect you recovery from the gomboo? 35 days till the Full Monte!
