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 Miler

You'd think after all of my whining about not being able to run, that the idea of getting up to run 4 miles today would be the best feeling in the world... NOT. I started bargaining with myself. I could get up later and try to do it at the gym (but I knew that wouldn't happen because I needed to get the last of the Christmas shopping done). Or, I could just totally skip today and do it tomorrow (but I need to run 4 on Sunday and wanted 2 days of rest in between). Finally, I got myself up and downstairs to the basement to get on the treadmill.

Finally about 3 miles in and yes it took 3 miles before I was glad that I was doing the 4 mile run, I felt a sense of accomplishment for getting up and running today.

The foot... well... it didn't really start hurting until about 3.5 miles and I don't want to say hurt or pain.. but more uncomfortable/twinges/pulling/slight burning in the arch. I stretched and iced and it's a little tender to the touch now on the outside of the foot where the tendonitis is bothering me. I suppose I should ice it again.

Rest day tomorrow and Saturday, and then I'm hoping for a 4 mile run outside on Sunday.
