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.

NOOOOOO.. Not the FLU!!!

Yep, what started as a little cough on Thursday night for Lil Man, turned into a low grade fever by midnight with a full blown storm by morning. I took him to the pediatrician and they did a flu test. He tested positive for the flu. You've got to be kidding me right?!? He had the shot so I'm hoping that will help him.

But this came out of no where, as I suppose most sickness does. But as many of you know, I'm about to peak in my training for the marathon. Today was supposed to be 17 miles. My Lil Man was just too sick for me to leave him. So I've pushed the run off until tomorrow, and hoping I will be able to leave him long enough to get it in. Next week is my one (and only) 20 miler. I've been snotted on, sneezed on, and had his slobbery fingers in my mouth. So, all I can do at this point is take care of him, hope he gets to feeling better soon, and hope that Hubby and I don't get it.

I currently have a slight sore throat and a pounding headache, but no fever. I'm hoping this is just from the lack of sleep as Hubby and I were up most of the night last night.

My Marathon is 4 weeks from today.
