Where has the time gone...

The past few days have been crazy busy around our household!  The end of the school year is quickly approaching and we have had tons to do.  Today was a special day because my little guy graduated pre-school...

He has grown so much over the year and I absolutely love his teachers and the dedication they have to the kids.

I have to tell you I am liking how my body is responding to all the weight training I have been doing the past week.  It takes a lot to motivate me to get there but once I start I find myself enjoying it.  Thank goodness I have an amazing gym and tons of supportive friends there!

This group of girls are so fabulous!  They have helped me look at the bright side and see that I will come back stronger then I was before.  Thanks girls!

I have moved my focus to my core, glutes, and ankles since I apparently have NO strength in these areas!  Tons of core work will hopefully give me the "pelvic girdle" I am lacking.  I also got cleared to do the elliptical and octane machine!  This was such a huge joy for me...Usually I avoid these machines like the plague.  I have totally shifted my mindset and am now really excited to see what my future training holds.

Today I was allowed to do the Stairmonster and got my sweat on...

Boy I look mean!  I swear I was elated to sweat like a man.  I did 70 minutes and loved every second.  My legs were shaky when I was done and it felt great.

I followed this up with Physical Therapy...I feel so weak in PT because he makes me do all the exercises I never do!  Hence the injuries.  I totally got worked today in PT for 1 hour 30 minutes.  But now that it is over I have to say I love it.  He knows exactly where my deficits are and forces me to strengthen them. I also had laser therapy and some stim!

Hope everyone is training smart!

Happy Running!
