So, hi there. I guess it's been a few days since I last checked in. I skipped out on some of my favourite weekly posts and took a much-needed blogging break.
I took Thursday and Friday off work so I could write my personal trainer certification exam. I took the course a few weeks ago and, with Melissa moving away, didn't focus on studying as much as I should have! The three hour exam was Friday and I PASSED!!! It was as hard as I thought it would be but I'm glad I took Thursday and Friday off so I could have a cram session. Now, I just have to do my practical exam and I'll be a PT!
My next goal is to certify as a Marathon coach. I registered, and got all the materials, but it's on the back burner until I pass all the components of my PT exam. My exam is in September so I have some time before I have to really start studying. I definitely can not leave this one to the last minute. That's too stressful!
Work has been going good but it's been busy. With summer holidays, it seems like we are always down at least once person every week. We have a small staff to begin with so it means more work but at least the days fly by.
I started working part-time at Orange Theory Fitness! I officially got hired and Saturday was my first day working in their preview centre. The facility doesn't open until late September/early October but I'm helping with membership sales in the meantime.
They have try-outs for coaches/personal trainers next month and September so I'm hoping to make the cut. It's exactly what I imagined myself doing when I started to think about a part-time job in the fitness industry.
I don't want to talk about running because I'm not sure what to say. If you've noticed a lack of running/working out photos on here or my IG page it's because it hasn't really been happening. I am still experiencing some pain in my leg (Posterial Tibilia Tendon Dysfunction) and the recovery hasn't been as quick as my Physiotherapist and I first thought. I did finally run Saturday (2.5 miles) and it felt okay. I've learned not to rush injuries but it's easier said than done.
London threw out the first pitch at a local baseball game yesterday. He was so excited and did so well!
I was one proud mama! It's amazing how the littlest things make kids so happy.
I'm off to see FloRida tonight! Some girlfriends and I got tickets to his concert and one of my old friends is actually opening for him. It should be a fun night!!
Hi, I'm Kaella, a single mom, reporter and avid runner. I love sharing my workouts, race-recaps, and experiences in group fitness class, with you. I also talk about my four-year-old son London a lot. I'm slightly obsessed with NYC, Starbucks and 5 Cent Candies.
