“You’re the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” ~Jim Rohn
This is why I spend as much time as I can with my trainer, mentor, and good friend, Austin Head. Austin’s hard to capture in words- I’ve never met anyone who could be so damn motivating while simultaneously making you sweat buckets. His jokes are 10% bad, 90% hilarious. He has the highest standards for himself as a coach, and he demands just as much from us. He packs out his classes til they’re standing room only and you need to get there 30 mins in advance to even get a spot! He’s super passionate about building community among his students, which he does expertly. He gets everyone jazzed about 6am charity rides and races, fundraisers and service projects, holiday themed classes and friendly competitions. He even coached me through a 5 min burpee battle against Jesse Itzler!
Several months ago, Austin approached me with his goal of starting a Tread podcast and asked if I’d help. Tread (speed and incline intervals on a treadmill) is one of my hardest workouts but for Austin, it’s ride or die.
If you’re just starting out as a runner, working towards larger race or endurance goals, or just trying to up your fitness game, you’ll love this!
What you can expect from the Treadcast:
1. Explicit directions for interval and speed training
2. Verbal cues about running form
3. Nonstop motivation, pushing, and encouragement
Take 40 mins and let me know how much you sweat. PS- I’m a quote fanatic… below are the ones I apparently shared during the workout, all 3 by David Goggins, a retired Navy SEAL known as, “the toughest man alive!”
“I don’t stop when I’m tired, I stop when I’m done”
“When your brain says you’re done, you’re only at 40%.”
“If it sucks, we’re doing it.”
