week 51 workout summary

I am so excited to report that after 3.5 days without power due to a massive ice storm that hit Toronto on Saturday Dec 21st, our power came back on early Christmas morning. Friends, I don’t know how our forefathers did it. (Or how the Amish do it today for that matter…) Call me spoiled, I…

week 50 workout summary

The highlight of this week had to be the strength it took to get in a workout on Tuesday night (technically Wednesday morning). Tuesday for me began with a 4am wake up time so that I could be at the airport by 5:30 for a 6:30 flight to New York. Clearly there was no working out before…
