5 Weeks Out: Ready to Roll!

The past week in my Fitness Competition prep has been filled with...

Goodness all around!

Yep Yep!

First off...

It started with a ride....

A motorcycle ride that is!


Let me explain...

SuperFit...


Having had his motorcycle license for quite a while now...

Was given a bike to borrow for a couple of weeks! (Awesome friend!)

Riding with the boys for the first time in a long time!
(And by boys I don't mean his Abs lol)

Well, needless to say...

We took FUll advantage of it!

Hi!

 How?

We ended up riding in and around the Gatineau Park...

Sup.
Enjoyed some nice scenery!

And...

We 'hit' up the Westboro Village area for some afternoon FUel ;)

Cappuccino for him.
An amazing Americano for me!

I will tell you one thing though (despite the amazing rush!)...

The rides did leave me with a really sore neck!

So...

I got me a massage to fix that! (On top of treating my body to a well deserved tuning of sorts!)

I was RENU'd alright ;)

By the end of my 60 minute sports massage...

My RMT left me not one, but two bags of Epsom Salt! (She figured I would need it! Hmm yes, yes indeed!)

If you haven't tried Epsom Salt in your bath...
YOU MUST!
So, SO relaxing!

In addition to this FUn...

I also got to spend some time with Family...

My cousin's bday!

And...

Friends!

My very good friend CM
Nikki and Little M
Cheese!

I also got to...

Practice my posing and routine with a bunch of amazing ladies at Florida Fitness Aylmer! (That is, before we hit the Serious About Fitness and Physique Canada stage in about 4 weeks now!)


SuperFit and Jenny did (and do) a great job with the competition simulation exercises! (And it's so very helpFUl for all of us!!!)

Break time!

I'm happy to report that given all this practice time...

I'm getting more and more comfortable in my 5' heels! (Practice definitely has been helping!!!)

As do band-aids!

In terms of my workouts and progress....

Things are going as they should be! (Everything is in line with one another - my body, my mind, everything! I feel good!)


I have to admit though...

I was a little tired this week, so...

I made sure to include some rest into the mix! (Like a FUll day's rest without any exercise! It felt good to give my body a break!)

Sure did!

Oh...

Did I mention the promo I wrote for my gym came out in our local paper?!

Yap!

And, for a double OH (Oh, Oh!)...

This is the weekend I run my very first half-marathon!!!!!

Yes!

I'm just two sleeps away from running the Army Run! (I'm picking up my race kit today!)


I think it goes without saying...

I am super duper excited (and a little nervous)! (I'll be writing a separate post to talk about everything leading up to this day, so stay tuned!)


Did I mention that they are calling for rain?!

They sure are!

One of my best runs ever was in the rain!

Having said that...

I'll still be wearing my blinged out race shirt no matter what!

Yep...

Nikki, Nookie and I will all have matching T-shirts! (I can't wait for you to see them! lol)


Yeeee!

Okay well, that's it that's all folks, so until next time... 

Have a great FUriday!
