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.

I Can Do This Right?

Well, this was my first run outside since I've been sick. I can't say that it was easy. Ok, there wasn't really much about this easy for me today. My breathing was horrible. It felt like I was just breathing 'off the top' if that makes sense. My running buddy told me to blow out hard and then breathe in. It worked. I was finally able to get in a deep breath.

We ran a few miles of flat then added in some hills. My knee tolerated it ok. I didn't have any 'pain', but just a few tweaks and twinges. I'm planning on (trying) to stretch this evening.

The moment I got back from the run, I've been on go go go mode. So I haven't really had time to really stretch it the way that it needs to be stretched.

I've been really stressed lately with training (or lack of) with being sick, my knee feeling off etc. But I'm trying to be positive and tell myself that it's ok. I have one 18 miler under my belt this go around. I will probably get in a 16 this weekend, and I'll have a hopefully solid 20 before the taper. I'm a little concerned about the hills with the knee. But my plan is to make the best of it.

I can do this right?
