The alarm goes off. It’s time for your pre-work training session. But before you can think about which shoes lace up or how many layers you need, you’re thinking about one thing… Coffee!
For many of us, the promise of steaming hot cup might be the only thing that gets us out from under those warm covers. That boost caffeine before a morning training session or race isn’t optional… it’s a requirement as fundamental as running shoes or a helmet.
And this is actually for a good reason! For years, research has reinforced the theory that caffeine is not just something that gets us out of bed, but it can actually contribute to better performance during a ride or run.
