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.

Nervous

I know that a lot of people deal with nerves before a marathon. I feel very unprepared (which I know is also normal). But I also know that missing some key runs probably really does leave me unprepared.

I did a hilly 12 miles yesterday. It was harder than I had hoped. I think partly was that I'm just really tired of running in the cold wind! And my stomach wasn't playing too nice. I'm officially on the 'taper' of the training plan. I have a couple of short runs this week, an 8 miler this weekend, a couple of short runs the following week, and then it's race time.

I think I might puke. I keep telling myself that this race has NO time limit. I can do this. Hydrate, refuel, walk as needed. Just keep moving forward. Don't over think it. Have fun! But right now, I'm just really nervous!

  1. There's porta potties available and in an emergency, just think puke is biodegradable, road side comfort creatures :)
    Now, open a can of whoop ass, enjoy the race and hydrate at all the water stations.
