Speedy Procrastinator – fourteen

Salut mes amis!

As I’ve previously mentioned on my blog, I may fall behind but I will always catch up! Today marks that to a T or a C for catch. In lieu of yesterday’s work, study and exam schedule I wasn’t able to run my 4K 😦 So today was actually quite the whirwind because I worked out waaaaay harder and longer than I had planned to!

First things first, I went for a run along the beautiful Ottawa Canal. The weather was amazing! Warm temperatures, a light breeze, shining sun, dry paths. The only thing I could complain about is my calf muscle… I work up really early this morning because I had the WORST muscle spasm in the world. It lasted the rest of the day. But I toughed through it only to run further than 4km… I accidentally ran 7.35km in 42mins but I suppose that is actually pretty good time for a girl with a sore muscle!

Follow the link below to see the route I ran today!

There after I made my way back to the gym for a little water break and continued with my Wednesday routine of Lower Body Exercises… and I’ve just realized I forgot to foam roll today! NO! *Tac that on to tomorrow*

**********
Weights

Squat bar (3reps of 10 20lbs)
Abductor/Adductor (1rep of 20 20lbs, 1rep of 20 30lbs, 1rep of 20 40lbs – per inner and outer)
Leg Extension (3reps of 20 20lbs and 1rep of 20 30lbs)

I got a good oblique work out from a couple of other things I did as well.

Finished this work out off with some stretching.

And it doesn’t stop there folks! Like I said, today was a whirwind! I had promised my friend that I would go to Zumba class since I missed it last week. So I shook my booty with what grace I think I have and called it a day! Zumba is a great cardio work out, if you’re ever looking for something new and fun check it out! You will learn a lot of basic dance moves in the process!

For those of you residing in the Ottawa area there is a class each Wednesday at the University of Ottawa and it is FREE! It is taught by a great girl, who is also named Jasmine 🙂
Or if you have a large enough space to do it at home this video is really great! He will make you sweat!!
