I love coffee. I drink truckloads of it. I have a loyalty card for every coffee franchise in existence. I only drink "good" coffee. We have a percolator in our office at uni with all the supplies we need to keep us caffeinated for at least a week. I won't drink 'Bland 43' or 'Intestinal Roast' or any other forms of 'instant death' unless I get really desperate and I'm a long way from a source of good coffee. My regular morning coffee is from Bravo Expresso underneath David Jones in Adelaide. Earlier this year I stupidly tried to reduce the amount of coffee I drink. This resulted in headaches and a severe sense of longing for my good friend coffee. I think I lasted two weeks. Enough ranting about coffee, back to work.
PS. Still sick, but I'm recovering now thanks to a day off work and a trip to the doctor for some antibiotics.
PPS. Sorry about the rude language.

In better news, we may have found a replacement member for the Power of Four, although she still needs to go for a run with Phil to see if she is compatible with our team. Assuming Andy's knee gets better, we should be on our way to running in the trailblazer event.

We still haven't found a replacement runner, but we are following up some options.
This week: 2-3 runs during the week totalling 30-40km then a long run on Sunday of about 40-45km. I won't be running in the city to bay because I have to look after the kids while RunCarly runs in it. I had considered running in it with the kids in a pram, but I think the cost outweighs the benefit and it also would interfere with me doing my long run.

Ran into uni 10km on Wednesday. Legs still felt a bit heavy so I took it easy.
Ran home 10km on Thursday night. This was the first time my legs felt good since the marathon. No soreness, no fatigue and no sore foot.
Ran into uni this morning then ran over to do two laps of the uni loop, so a total of 15 km. Everything felt good again so I guess I must have recovered from the marathon. Good thing too, because we are doing a 40km training run for trailblazer on Sunday morning.
Some news about the trailblazer. We officially now only have three team members and we need four. If anyone from Adelaide (or elsewhere) knows someone who would like to run in this 100km event, send me an email.

Foot is still a bit sore. I've narrowed it down to a muscle on the outer side of the foot below the ankle bone. If anyone has any idea what this muscle is called or has had a similar injury, your comments would be appreciated.
