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.

4 Mile River Run

This morning started off dreary, foggy and rainy. I had planned to possibly try to get a 2 mile run in on the dreadmill. I haven't run in a week due to being sick, and I wasn't sure how I'd feel. By 2:00pm the sun was starting to shine. By 3:30 it was gorgeous outside. I decided to go down to the river walk.

There weren't many runners out when I was there. But it was a beautiful day to run. I was overdressed. I didn't need the long sleeve shirt. I was struggling at first. I hadn't run in a week, and I always have problems with my breathing when running. Add in the fact that I'm still congested and that didn't help matters. I had told myself that I would like to run 3 miles since it was so nice. As I was nearing the half way point, I was close to an intersection. I decided to run to the intersection and turn around.

When I got back to my starting point, I was just shy of 4 Miles. Instead of stopping, I decided to continue on the path until I reached 4 Miles. I feel pretty good about the run. It wasn't by any means fast, but overall it was steady. I wanted to run the last mile faster than the rest. I did ok.

Mile 1 ~ 10:11, Mile 2 ~ 9:48, Mile 3 ~ 9:59, Mile 4 ~ 9:25
