Holding on for the weekend

What a week. I have been going full tilt all week and have one more crazy day before I get to relax. Training has been great, despite how busy I am I have been fitting it in. I have surprised even myself a couple of times this week completing workouts that were daunting to look at, and despite feeling tired I was able to do it. I have been getting up at 5am, and D continues to be impressed at how I hop out of bed as soon as the alarm goes off. I don't feel like I have the option of sleeping in- I have people coming to my house expecting a great workout! My classes are going fantastic, I am so happy with the women I am working with. I am done the training programs and have only a few more days of appointments to meet with everyone. Once this is done I will have a lot less on my plate and feel a bit less pressured for time.
Workout wise, Tuesday was a bike and weights, Wed was a swim (I can't believe I completed the workout,it was crazy)and a short run, Today was an hour run with H-dog and more weights. I have been doing so much strength work, between classes and my own, that I am getting seriously ripped. Even I am surprised and the changes that are happening in my body. I love it, it is making being so tired worth it...haha.
Tomorrow is back to back meetings, I am not sure I will get to swim, the lane swim times are so limited. Sat is a long run and Sun is a spin with the gang. I am hoping we have enough energy to go for a ski Sunday too. The weather has been outstanding!

You are very welcome, Amber! The groin is healing, though still aching. To be expected...

Too bad we didn't live closer! I can't skate ski until next weekend, but the motion of classic I could do. Trading would be great! It's a lot of will love it when you try it!
