How I Am Incorporating Alert Caffeine Gum Into My Fitness Routine

Thank you Alert Caffeine Gum for sponsoring this post. All opinions and experiences are my own.

Anyone else struggling with getting back into a routine after being off for the holidays? I know I have. Add in that Lil Man was sick an entire week before Christmas and daily naps became the norm, I'm really struggling to make it through a normal day.

Although we haven't gone back to school yet, Hubby is back to work. And that means if I want to get in a workout or at least one without company and interruptions, I have to get up early and workout before Hubby goes to work. And the rest of the day is the usual go go go.

Thankfully I've had the opportunity to try Alert Caffeine Gum. 1 piece of Alert Gum is about the equivalent of a half a cup of coffee. (And for me that means no jitters). It's just enough ooomph to give me the boost that I need.

Frustrated – that’s what I am at the moment. I just completed a three mile run. It was a struggle from the very beginning, but I pushed myself on if you want to call it that. I think I saw a turtle moving at a faster pace. I did run a few hills today, but I am frustrated with myself. Since I’ve started back running, I can’t seem to break the 11 min per mile pace. It is frustrating. I had a better run time when I was run/walking. I was in the 9 minute range when I would run, recover and then run again. Now that I am trying to run without walking any, my time has dropped significantly which is very frustrating. I am hoping that if I keep at it and add in some speed work and hill work out that my time and endurance will increase. I sure hope so.
