So when the alarm goes off, it’s time to rise … and get your a$$ to the West Steps for the 6:25AM workout or 10th and N Street if you are planning on getting out there for the running groups at 5:30AM and 6:00AM.
As the mornings stay darker from the night, it doesn’t stop the crew from getting out to get our dose of pouring of the liquid awesome. In fact this is when the toughness really starts to come out, and the strong establish themselves.
It’s always easier to hit the snooze button or just skip the workout if you aren’t training for anything specifically or if you just feel like sleeping in.
However, these are the days that really challenge us during the year. The Spring and Summer seasons, the sun comes out to greet us during the workout, but these Winter workouts suck from a scenery standpoint, I mean because it is dark out, there really isn’t much to see.
But we don’t come to the steps to run to see anything except for the faces of the awesome people who choose to come out and get their daily workout in. It’s actually one of the best morning sights, when people drive up and are ready to do work and prove to themselves that they are bad ass enough to tackle the workout set for that day.
This morning we welcomed a couple of new faces to the group that we introduced ourselves to last week who were at the West Steps taking a work photo. Courtesy of Ed, we had two new faces this morning, so hopefully they return. Welcome to the crew Jay and Patricia.
The workout for today was another awesome partner workout that involved hoistees, pushups, situps and leapfrogs, followed by a run around the West Lawn between each set. Exercises were performed in reps of 20 with a partner then followed by the run and repeated 3 times through. The group kicked the crap out of that workout this morning.
Way to go crew! We punched Wednesday morning square in the mouth and it is time to seize the rest of the day.
Have a great rest of your Wednesday!
