I read somewhere that a good strong coffee about an hour before a run can have positive effects. So, keen to give it a go, about a month ago before a 10k race I popped into a coffee shop nearby and downed a double espresso. As far as I can tell, it had no effect whatsoever!
I have another race coming up this Saturday, so I'd love to know if anyone out there has tried this and did it work for you? If so, what is the runners cup of choice?
Large Americano or Skinny. Mocha? A simple Espresso or is it best to go all in for the Festive Cinnamon and Toffee Nut Latte with sprinkles and whipped cream?
