How much coffee is too much? I have thought about this several times in the past few days, and after reading Sierra’s post this morning, I realized I am not alone. I usually have one cup in the morning before work during the week and occasionally (on average, probably once a week) another cup in the mid afternoon. There are however, the exceptions to the rule, such as today when I almost fell asleep on the subway (I find the motion very relaxing, especially if I am sitting down) on the way to work, and immediately decided to stop and pick up a second cup on my walk to the office.
Yes, I know there are documented health benefits and warnings about coffee and caffeine consumption in general, but I am curious as to what others think is too much coffee?
I feel that in general I don’t do too badly (I see some people who literally drink cups and cups a day) and as I often don’t have any on the weekend, and certainly don’t require it to get up (I workout in the morning before having any coffee) I figure it probably isn’t that horrible.
Tonight was the annual Wall Street Run & Heart Walk, which is a 5k race sponsored by NYRR through the financial district in downtown Manhattan. This would have been my first one, and apparently turns into a bit of a competition between different groups in each company and even between companies to see who can have the most participants and raise the most money, so I was definitely looking forward to it.
However, after finally finding a promising lead on the apartment searching front yesterday we had to book an appointment with the leasing agent at 5:30pm, which meant I wasn’t able to run the race. Though I went to the gym this morning it was a very relaxed workout and I had really been looking forward to getting some week day mileage in, but finding a place to live is much more important! I hate making a commitment and not following through, but sometimes life has to take precedence. Since I didn’t get a run in tonight, I am determined to get in a run tomorrow.
We haven't made a final decision on the apartment yet, but I think we are definitely making progress! Time to obsess over the floor plan and potential furniture placement…
