I'm Lovin' THIS Life


Life has its ups and downs, and for whatever reason, there were a lot of downs last week. Thus, going into my volume block on Monday, I wasn't quite sure what to expect. But sure enough the Universe provided: the sun, heat, breathtaking scenery, and a body that was willing and able. I put in close to 11 hours of training the past two days, and the goal is to hit a little over 30 hours this week. The timing couldn't be better for this volume block. I'm only teaching half days this week, and why half days? Well, our school abandons regular classes this week for alternate classes, and I'm leading a class on how to kitesurf, right on! And next week is Spring Break! For those of you who follow my blog, you know I'm all about making videos. The "creative" process goes something like this: once I hear the right song, I compose much of the video in my head, then, it's just a matter of going out and collecting the images. I collected these images from my training day on Monday. Enjoy the video and let it be a reminder that when life hands you nothing but downs, more than likely, an up is just around the corner.

We are very lucky to live where we live :-) Glad you aren't taking the training scenery for granted!

LOVE me a Kiet video!! Would it be weird if I admitted I sometimes watch them more than once? :) You have a beautiful playground and you certainly make the most of it! 30 hours is MONSTEROUS!! I know you will crush it! Go Kiet!!
