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 Last 10 Miler

We had family in over the weekend, and I'm just not getting a chance to catch up.

Friday I ran a 10 miler (solo). Lately I've been running my long runs with my running buddy, but she was running 16 on Saturday. I wanted to get in a 12 mile run and my scheduled worked out best to run on Friday.

As you can guess, I only ran 10 instead of 12, but it was a good solid 10 and I was pleased with it. I had stomach issues (since I had eat the wrong foods prior to the run). So I wasn't surprised to find myself in need of relief around 4-5 miles into the run.

But ovberall it was a decent solid run. I had planned to run the following day, but instead went on a 6 mile hike with my sister-in-law on the Appalachian Trail. It was a nice workout. Then the following day, we had other plans so I still wasn't able to run.

I did however get a 3 mile run in today on the treadmill. This week is my first 18 miler (gulp) . So I am definitely hoping for a good running week.

The Half is fast approaching!
