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.

Vinnie's Kids 5K Run


What a disappointment this race turned out to be. I think I put too much emphasis and pressure on myself to go out and PR. I started off with an 8:40 mile, but I just couldn't hold on to it. I got slower and slower as the distance went on. I am still waiting on the official results, but I believe I came in at 28:22.

But I suppose every run/race can't be a great one. I'll just have to train harder/smarter for the next one. I just registered for Logan's Run for April 10. I also plan to do either another 5K or a 5 Mile race on the 17th. I'm waiting to see what the fertility dr says about my running before I register for any more. Hopefully I will be able to continue to run the shorter distances.

HG got some good pics today for me of the race. I'll have to get them posted.

I am putting my training for a half marathon on hold this year. My current hope is that I will be allowed to continue to run the shorter distances. I guess I'll know in about 4 weeks or so. Until then I am focusing on the next two races.

Even though today wasn't what I had hoped for, I'm still glad I did it. Everything is a learning experience and I have learned from this one.
