The Runaway Belle

Ok so according to my run race schedule I'm about ready to run my 10K. However...yup a however...I haven't run in about 6 weeks. So here is the story... 

If I had planned my runs right I would have been ready to run my first 5K. My 5K was to be run the Saturday after returning from my ski trip. That week was also the week in the C25K that I was to run 25 minutes continuously. I think I used the ski trip as my reasoning as to why my running plan got debunked. Let's face the facts the REAL reason is I think that I can't run for 25 minutes continuously. Which doesn't really make sense since at one point I was able to run 6 miles. What can I say I have a mental block with running. 

The thing is that I really began to enjoy running. I just need a running buddy to be there when I want to quit, push me to go faster, and for workout accountability. Sounds great right? I am currently take applications if you wish to apply. Ok so not really...ok sort of for real. There are running clubs. I see some of them meet at my favorite park. Some of them are pretty funny...they run then gather around a tailgate to drink beer. I may look into finding a club that could work with my work schedule.

Return of the Southern Belle

So upon request of several people I'm back. Apparently people like the blog! Today's post will be an update on what has been going on in my life!

Ok last ya'll heard I was studying to take my certification test again. Well I took it February 12 and PASSED! That is right! I am a Cooper Institute Certified Personal Trainer! That same day I applied to several gyms. By the end of February I was hired by a brand new 24 Hour Gym being built in the Katy area that was not due to open until April 23.

The idea of wait till April 23 to start making real money was a bite scary but I had the nanny job till then...or so I thought. Turns out that my job with the little blurs wouldn't work with my training schedule.

It was a bitter sweet goodbye to the boys. The family was such a blessing. They encouraged me to continue when most told me it was time to move on.

Well I am learning everything 24 Hour Fitness and getting to know everyone. There are 21 trainers and 9 Membership Counselors. It's sort of like being at camp. Which is great because if I had just gone into an already established gym it would have been hard for this shy Belle to get to know people. Also our gym's opening has been moved up a week! We are opening April 16th!

So let me know what you want see on the blog. I def have some ideas for postings. But what are you struggling with? What can I help you with?
