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.

I’m sore, and I’m getting more sore as the day goes on. But it’s a good feeling. I wasn’t sure if I would be able to do it - the 11 mile run yesterday, I’ve been having stomach issues when running the longer distances. I tried the stomach aid last weekend on my 9 mile run. It helped but didn’t solve the problem. But yesterday, I used the stomach aid and I carried water with me. I’ve been running the long runs without drinking any water. I know I know. So yesterday, I carried water with me. Usually once I take one sip, I’m in trouble. But yesterday I drank probably 8 ounces during a 2 hour run. It was a good ‘start’. I don’t want to use the stomach medicine every time I run a long distance, but I need to use it on my longer runs to decide how much to take and when before I run the half marathon.

I believe I’m doing to treat myself to a sports pedi for making the distance yesterday. It was tough, but I did it.
