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.

Recap of This Week's Running

Yesterday's long run (8 miles) was not necessarily the confidence boost that I needed before the Half next weekend. It was great to meet a friend to run so I didn't have to run alone. But I did not expect the heavy tired legs that I felt. I know that I didn't eat right last week (and I'm hoping that was part of the reason), but I was hoping for a 'wow, that was great' instead of 'wow, that was extremely tough'.

This week is a taper week.. I only have 2 short runs before the Half on Saturday....

I'm hoping for a strong run..
