Weezy McSneezy

AM: 20 mins. pool
3 miles
PM: 5 miles + strides

So, here's the funny thing about taking caffeine pills at 5:30pm: they wake you up. Like, for a long time. Here is essentially a breakdown of last night:

9:30pm: Return home from workout; shower, eat dinner, etc.
11:00pm: Get in bed.
12:00am: Still awake.
1:00am: Still awake. Cat vomits. (Oh, have I not told you we now have a cat? More on that in a second.)
2:00am: Finally fall asleep.
7:00am: Wake up for pool. Hate life.

This chain of events leads me to feel torn about using the caffeine pills. I thought they really helped me feel alert and excited for the workout last night, but obviously I can't take them this late (which, essentially, is the scenario we were practicing for at Nationals) and expect to attain a semblance of a good night's sleep afterward. I don't know if having a strong cup of coffee would have quite the same stimulant effect, but most of the reasoning behind taking the pill instead of drinking actual coffee is that I'm exceptionally wary of how a cup would affect my notoriously tenuous stomach situation so close to race time. So, I need to think a little bit more on this matter.

Now to the kitty. Last week, one of my classmates informed our class that she and her husband are moving and that they can't take their cat with them. Apparently the local shelter is currently full and not accepting any new pets at this time. Fast forward to a few days later, and somehow we ended up with a three-year-old feline named Weezy. After a few days of hiding exclusively underneath our bed, she has gradually become accustomed to her surroundings and is turning into, if I may say so myself, the coolest kitty in the entire world. When she's not eating her food too quickly and throwing it up at 1am.

P.S. I added the "McSneezy" on the end because the pollen is making her sneeze just as much as Jordan. It's pretty adorable (Weezy's sneezing, not Jordan's). I never thought I'd say this, but I might actually be turning into a cat person. Or at least a Weezy person.

If I was you, I wouldn't be blogging about my PED habit.

you are a cat person now for sure...especially after weezy's paw in water trick.
