19:00AM – A Morning In Motion: Race Through Parc La Fontaine
When warm weather rolls around, it’s a lot easier to motivate yourself to get outside for a run! Wake up, chow down on a light breakfast, slide on your sneakers and push your pedals all the way to Parc La Fontaine! Boasting a 2.5km long perimeter, this urban racetrack is perfect for runners at any level of experience. While running, take time to wonder at the budding plants that will soon fully bloom, making future runs all the more scenic. Not only will this experience give you a serious breath of fresh air, alternating between cycling and running will help strengthen your leg muscles.

23:00PM – An Aquatic Afternoon: Schubert Pool
Built in the early 1930s, the Schubert Pool is a true Montreal landmark. A staple of the Plateau and beloved by residents of the borough, this historic public bath has an indoor pool that extends nearly 25 meters long. Dive in and relieve the tension in your muscles from earlier this morning, then swim a few laps to make them even stronger. Better yet, just like the majority of Montreal’s indoor public pools, entry is completely free. There’s absolutely no reason not to take the plunge!
