Feel the Burn Workout

Is it weird that I still get excited for Friday even though I’m not working? Same thing goes for those Sunday night blues…guess they’ll never go away!

But that’s just getting ahead of myself.

I started the morning with a bowl of oats and a barrel of coffee. Today is my supposed to be my ‘off’ day from working out, but I have the urge to do something anyways. What to do, what to do. Take Layla for a walk! Perfect ‘get moving’ solution. There are a TON of off leash places in Calgary, but I wanted to find one that was completely fenced for my ill-behaved loser dog. 30 minutes in the car later, and there we were.

I kept her on the leash at first to walk the entire perimeter, then I let her go. And ya know what? The dang dog stayed by my side the entire time. WTF? I go out of my way for her and then she goes and gets all obedient on me. What a waste of gas. It was still fun though, and she tired herself out a lot faster by sprinting with me every once in a while.

Once we got back, I had a little morning snack of grapes
