You remember how I am no fitness guru, right?
Except that sometimes I pretend that I maybe am.
In recent months I found out this crazy trick that helps me push myself a little harder and run a little longer when in the midst of a workout.
I know, stop the presses everyone!!
Specifically Trident Spearmint flavor.
I was amazed a while back when I discovered it and even text Colleen to see if I was totally crackers. It's not that it's some miracle and makes workouts super easy. I assume it has something to do with it keeping my focus or maybe creates more saliva or something really scientific, therefore making it beyond my comprehension.
After struggling with getting back in the running groove over the winter, gum somehow helped put me over the hump. I even tried different flavors and the spearmint worked the best.
As long as I keep chomp, chomp, chomping on my gum I am like Superwoman.
Even if it is the weirdest oddity I have discovered to date, I don't care. It totally works for me and keeps me moving.
I wonder if I can convince my husband to consider buying stock in Trident?
How about you? Do you have an inexplicable (exercising/workout related or not) tip to share?
