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.

Trails, Dogs And Falls

So, as you know, we got Miles, our little puppy (Ya'll Meet Miles) a couple of weeks ago. We are in full blown house training (can we say pee and poop!).

But he also requires a lot of exercise (which we knew), and I took him out on the trail for the first time last Friday.

At first he was hesitant, but when we turned to come back the way we came, he turned on his jets. As in, he was running way faster that I am used to on the trail.

It was fun... and then I bit it.. and bit it hard. Yep, 2 tenths of a mile from the car, I fell. Thankfully I held on to the leash (He's still learning to come when he's called). And he immediately stopped once I fell. I felt my right foot pull (in the arch). Saw the mud and a little blood on my pants, and they ripped. Grrr... these pants made it through the (It was Bound to Happen) but didn't fare so well this go around. 

A few days later, my knee still hurts, but thankfully it wasn't as bad as my last fall! 

So when we got back to the car, he wouldn't take another stop. SERIOUSLY.. not another step. I'm curious to see how he does the next time we go out. Because once we got to the car, I realized that he picked up the pace so he could get back to the car. 

And before I left the parking lot, he was already asleep. 

It was fun trail running with him (other than the fall). I look forward to future runs as we work out the kinks of learning to run with each other. 

So tell me, do any of you run with your dog(s)?
