Legs like lead, tired and not very motivated!

Seems I am not the only one that is feeling absolutely shattered this week. Week 9 has been my biggest struggle, mentally and physically. Sometimes when we know we have challenges ahead like a move etc we run on adrenaline - at least I know I do, but then I collapse from exhaustion when the dust settles. I think that's what this week has been about. I got what I needed to done over the last few weeks and now it's catch up/repair time. Just as the 5 sets of everything kick in:-/
I am however doing better at the scoop push ups.....managed two sets ok but on the third set I literally went into stomach on the floor, a la cobra, then back up again - not ideal, but it worked to get me through a few more reps. The V-sits are still not pretty either - two sets ok, then it just gets sloppy, so I am regressing back to leg ups still.
Despite watching the available demos I know my technique is off in a lot of the exercises and regret that I didn't spend some time with a personal trainer going through some of them in greater detail as I hate thinking that I am wasting my time doing something and doing it incorrectly. I am however noticing much more muscle definition in my legs and arms. My legs are like lead at the moment though and as I type now, my arms just want to hang down.... so tired!
Looking forward to seeing the back of week 9. I haven't enjoyed it as much as the last few weeks but that's ok, it can't all be plain sailing or it'd be too easy. Plan is to motor on, make the most of and enjoy the last 3 weeks!
