Thoughts: Felt pretty decent by mid-afternoon so I went ahead and trained. I tried to keep it intense but not overload my respiratory system. Overall it felt like a great workout. Hit the hot tub afterwards to soothe the legs a little and headed home to watch some football and drink tea. Normally I would pose, but I didn't think that would be very worthwhile right now.
I was looking back at some things from last prep. To compare, I was right around this weight at 12 weeks out last time. Looking at those pictures: 1) I had no idea how to pose, 2) I had zero leg, back, or ab definition, and 3) I was considerably smaller. Feels good to know you've made progress.
