All Play & No Work (YEG)

I have two weekday morning alarms, 5:00 and 5:10…it always feels like I am treating myself when I allow myself to sleep those extra 10 minutes (which is most mornings). Today, on my day off, my alarm was set for 4:40AM…what?!…yup that’s right…4:40AM, which is pretty much the middle of the night. Any alarm that stars with a number less then 5 is considered middle of the night in my books. 2 years ago, I’d have probably said that they only reason you should have an alarm set for a time that is prior to 6AM is that you have to get to the airport for an early flight to a tropical destination.

And yet here I am, on my day off, setting a alarm for 4:40. Why you may ask, its simple, today I don’t have to rush off after hill. Instead of having to drive to the hill so that I can get in my car to make my way home in order to get to work in time I was able to meet some tribemates to run 3K to the hill, do hills with the tribe and then enjoy a cool down run with great company. It is only on my days off that I can add in this extra community time and it is worth every second of those 20 minutes that I stole from my sleep time. It is truly the best way to start everyday, especially the days off!

Most of you will have Monday off as a holiday , so instead of using your day off as an excuse sleep in not to show up, use the fact that you have a day off as the perfect reason to #JUSTSHOWUP!

Monday’s workout is going to be amazing…the destination in and of itself is spectacular (Fort Edmonton Footbridge). We will be tagging Monday so if you’ve been coveting some #grassrootsgear bring a light colored top (we only spray using black) and we’ll get you all tagged up!
