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.

Early Morning Runs

Today I was supposed to get up at 5:00am to get my run in. I turned my alarm off ... sigh. I did manage to get on the treadmill at 6:00am and run 4 miles while Lil Man and Hubby ate breakfast. I then put Lil Man in the jogger for a short run. I had hoped to run 2 miles, but I was tired and hungry. We stopped at 1 mile.

But today's plan was for an easy 4-6 miles. I got in 5 miles which I'm happy with.

I hope to go to yoga tomorrow, but I need to get in a 40 minute tempo run. Yoga is at 8:30 which means we must leave the house by 8:00am. I also have lunch plans at 11:30 which means if I want to get in a morning run, I need to get up at 4:30am... hmmm. I could always try to get in an evening run, but those usually don't work out for me. By the end of the day, my energy level is nil. Plus with pop up thunderstorms, even the treadmill might not be an option.

It looks like early morning is my best option for tomorrow... too bad I'm so tired just thinking about it.
