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.

Nice!

I can't lie, that felt great! Well, yeah I still had a little pain in my arch. It feels more like a tugging, pulling, burning sensation. It started easing up a little around .75 mile. I'm not sure if it was hurting less or if the endorphins were kicking in and I was ignoring it.

I did NOT want to stop at 1 mile. I almost kept going, but I listened to the nagging voice in my head that I had to be smart and stop. So I stopped at a mile. I FINALLY broke a light sweat while running. It's been over 3 weeks since I've been able to do that. It felt great.

I'm currently icing the foot.

My plan is to rest tomorrow (maybe do the rowing machine at the gym depending on how my day is going). And run 2 miles on Tuesday.

2 on Tuesday has a ring to it doesn't it? ;)

Unless the pain gets worse as the day goes on.

So here's to hoping that there isn't any more pain as the day goes on.
