"This is your Drill Sargeant speaking..."

Well... my 6:30 a.m. client overslept again! This is the 3rd time. She showed up about 15 min. before the session was over. That's ticket number 2 she's lost. The policy is that if a client is a no-show, or more than 15 min. late without calling, OR doesn't give at least 24 hours notice before a cancellation, they still have to pay for it. I give all of my clients a "1 time grace session" to miss one without getting charged.

I asked her if she'd like to try doing the evenings or weekends. But she said she wants to make a 6:30 a.m. workout a routine for herself. What ends up happening is that she wakes up, hits snooze, then doesn't wake-up again until it's too late.

So, what do I agree to do? Call her each morning before I leave my house to train her. She was so grateful. That gives her 45 min. to get to downtown HW. It takes her 30 min. to drive there.

The other trainers think I'm too nice. I think I just love what I do and am extremely dedicated to my clients. Not to say they aren't, but I just put a lot into it. I figure that my clients are making an investment in me, so I will do the same for them. Plus it keeps 'em motivated.

Anyway, my next appointment isn't until 9:00, so after E, the 6:30 a.m. client had left at 7:30, I decided to try running on the treadmill. I was nervous... this was my first time doing a 30 min. run with my inhaler. Right now my doses are supposed to be 2 hits of the Flovent, once in the morning then once before bed. I've actually only been doing the bedtime dosage. I'm trying to minimize my reliance on it. Plus I haven't had to use the albuterol inhaler yet.

Awwwwwwwwwwww yeeeeeaaaaaaah! I was a rock star runner! Tight, quick pace, varying inclines, and not one instance of chest tightness or gasping. And that typically happens with or without a cat. Depending on the season, I get exercise induced asthma. Primarily in the Fall and early Spring.

After that, I did abs and stretched. I feel AWESOME! Now I'm just waiting for my 9:00 client as I cool down.

Life is good. : )
