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.

5K This Weekend

So far so good after my 3 mile run yesterday. I still have a few 'twinges' here and there, but I'm hoping that it's all ok. I go back to the dr in a couple of weeks for a followup. 

But I'm running a 5K this weekend with someone who is doing their first 5K. I'm looking forward to it. I pulled out my old running log and looked up my first race ever. It was October 2002. And I was surprised that my first 5K resulted in a 28:xx race. I was definitely much slower (and older) when I came back to running after I had Lil Man. 

This race on Sunday isn't about 'time' at all. I'm running it for the pure enjoyment of running a race with someone who is experiencing their first race. I hope my foot holds out. If it doesn't, the agreed upon deal is that she is to go on ahead of me and finish her race. If all systems are go, our plan is to run it together. 

I'm looking forward to it.
