Y: (Breathing heavily) I can't run anymore.

P: Yang, Chen, we've only run a half mile. We have four and a half miles to go before we finish!

Y: (Stopping) 还有4个半英里?我要累死了。

P: I wonder why are you so tired. What did you do last night. Shopping again?

Y: Macy's had a great sale.大降价。

P: But that still doesn't explain your terrible performance today. Yang Chen, let me ask you some questions. Did you stretch before the race?

Y: No.

P: Did you have a meal with plenty of carbohydrates?

Y: 碳水化合物? 没有。I didn't eat anything.

P: I can't believe this. Did you have any water or sports drinks before the race?

Y: Coffee!

P: You did everything wrong. Everything. First of all, your body needs carbohydrates (carbs) for the energy that you will use to run.

Y: 下次跑步之前先补充carbs,吃块儿面包。

P: Also, you drank the WRONG liquid, Yang Chen.

Y Why?

P Your body needs to be hydrated - meaning having enough water - Coffee is a diuretic, so it actually makes you dehydrated - which means you don't have enough water in your body.

Y: Patrick, I'm not going to quit 前进!

P: Let's stop today. You are totally dehydrated. And how many cups of coffee did you have today?

Y: I had five.

P: I think it's time to go to the hospital, Yang Chen. 救护车。
