I had a:
I FUelled up at the grocery store...
Then headed over, with SuperFit, for a dinner over at The Masta's house!
|He made lots and lots of food!|
|And people brought some amazing looking eats too!|
|Chicken and Veggie Vermicelli Rolls.|
|Hummus and Pita!|
I ended up having an amazing salad topped with Oven Broiled Salmon seasoned with Olive Oil, Fresh Rosemary, Garlic and Salt and Pepper to taste! (Thanks for recipe idea Chris!)
I made it a few days later (twice) because it was so Mmmm Mmm Yumm!
I did tweak the recipe! (Just a little bit! lol What I did was use my salad dressing recipe as a base and added from there...)
Ingredients to mix (serves more than one):
3 T Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 T Lemon Juice
1 T Dijon Mustard
2 cloves of minced Garlic (I like it really garlikeeee)
2 T Chopped Parsley
Salt and Pepper to taste and
Some fresh Rosemary to top
Coat your salmon with this mixture and broil it in the oven at 400F for about 15 minutes (until top has browned slightly!)
I didn't have the amazing looking Cannolis for dessert! (Although, I can't say I know what I'm missing because I've never had a Cannoli before!)
The remainder of my prep involved lots of...
FUn with friends...
Interesting internet encounters...
And good food!
|Cucumber and Coffee.|
Interesting combo don't you think? lol
|And more salad!|
This one was amazing!
When it comes to my running...
I had mentioned last week my calf was giving me issues!
As a result of that...
I had to take a week off to give it the rest it required! (Boo but a smart move!)
Come the day of my test run...
I did 3K with some slight discomfort!
My ankle seemed sensitive! (My calf not so much!)
Let's just say...
I've been careFUl with my runs and I'm hoping everything will regulate itself soon, given the proper at-home care and some good stretching!
There's no denying...
I want to get back to my distance soon!
**I'm going out for my third run of the week today! WoO HoO!**
I changed up my routine (a little) in terms of when I train certain muscle groups! (No specific reason, I just wanted to give my schedule a little shake!)
I have to say...
I have gained some strength as I was able to increase some of my weights with certain exercises! (All while keeping proper form!)
|I found my very first pair of training gloves I had purchased|
when I was just getting started at the gym!
Aaaah memories! ;)
**It's one thing to lift heavy and it's another add weight, not have proper form, sacrifice actually working the targeted muscle group and then risk getting injured! Be sure you always maintain proper form when executing an exercise! Don't train your ego, train your muscles! And, if you don't know how to do it, ask! Simple as that! :)**

I should also mention...
I was super excited and totally pumped when FitFluential created and shared, on their facebook page, this motivational captured image of SuperFit and me! (If you haven't 'liked' them yet, head on over and give them some L.O.V.E!)
All in all...
My second week into my competition prep went well!
I'm feeling good, I'm feeling strong and...
I'm getting more and more excited as the days go by!
I'm also thrilled that Teddy Bear's FUr is growing back nicely! (Since his 'bad' haircut!)
|I just finished brushing him :)|
