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.

Getting Ready for Next Week's Capital 10 Miler

Sorry I know I've been MIA for a little bit. Life just got super busy all of the sudden. Lil Man turned 3, we took a trip to the beach, and we got some news that sort of knocked me on my rear concerning my family.

So, I had to take a little time to re-group emotionally. And I'm getting there.

As far as running goes, so far so good! I completed my first 10 mile training run yesterday. Yes, I said 10 miles!!! And then today, I was scheduled for a 5 mile pace run (9 minute mile), and I did it! I was super excited and amazed that I was able to do that.

My 10 mile race is next Sunday. I have a timed goal in my head. I always have a timed goal. :) But if I honestly don't reach that goal, or if the race just doesn't feel like I'm in the groove, I'm planning to slow it down and run it as a fun run / training run. I have several Half Marathons on my schedule for this year.

But regardless of the outcome of the race next weekend, I am totally seeing progress.. and I'm super pleased about that!

Last week, I was able to get a run on the beach. (My first run ever on the beach). It was beautiful!
