I’m not pregnant.  I feel like if you are in your 20’3/30’s and you say you have big or exciting news, everyone automatically assumes you’re pregnant.  Never fear, that ship has sailed.  BUT, I got a job!!! I announced it on social media yesterday but had a kid home sick and just didn’t have time to sit down and blog about it.

I’m pumped.  I’ll be starting in May as an instructor for Texas Fit Chicks.  I’ll be teaching bootcamps for ladies only.  How cool is that?  This is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time so to see it become a reality is exciting!

As it relates to you amazing readers, there is an online training option through TFC.  I am SO stinking excited about this because it means I can train YOU from a distance with top of the line technology.  The system has everything from a visual tool to allow you to see what your transformation will look like as well as nutrition plans and workouts.  It’s really so cool.  To look at the online training click here.  It’s crazy affordable and allows me to work with you using tools I don’t have at home.  It’s going to be fun! So, stay tuned as I’ll have all that info linked to the blog once we get my business page up and running.  Yay!

And my other piece of exciting news for this week…I got a new treadmill!!  I ran a nice and progressive 6 miles yesterday..in my bedroom!!  I got on and did my thing then got right off and back to life.  It’s going to save me so much time it’s ridiculous.  And I got a killer deal.  My computer is not loving me today and there is a GIANT fly buzzing around my computer screen and trying to land in my coffee cup that I just can’t kill.  It’s not my day.  And it’s only 6:30am.  So, I’m not able to load any pics of my new treadmill BUT here is my workout from yesterday.  Made this run go by so fast!

*Adjust the pace according to your ability.  You wan those last two miles to be comfortably hard.  You can breath, but not talk or think about anything other than maintaining that harder pace.  For added challenge increase your incline to 1.5-2%.  Pacing is hard for runner’s.  Practicing progressive runs on the treadmill is a great tool because the treadmill sets the pace for you.  I’d suggest taking it outside after you try this a few times.  It will teach you to navigate your pace and eventually you will learn how to have negative splits or keep your pace even.

Let me know how it goes!!!

What’s your fave treadmill workout?

Also, she needs a name.  Taking suggestions…GO!!!

  1. Linda me too. Only so much I can take of running in place=) If I have zero plan when I get on the treadmill I’ll last a mile and get bored. And I just love you. Estelle!! HAHA!! She’s a character…makes me miss Friends=)

  2. So exciting!! My moms running group used the phrase BAMR a lot (bad a** mother runner) so you could call her BAMR (bammer) since you are one 🙂

  3. Congrats on the job!

    Hmm, I also love progression runs on the treadmill. Keeps things interesting. Actually, maybe I like hill intervals too. Anything that makes the time fly by. Plus, I always feel extra sweaty and badass after. Bonus!

    Name – Bertha? Kidding. Come to think of it, mine doesn’t have a name either! Hmm.
    Maybe Estelle? Lke Joey’s agent. 😉
