Thousands of stairs climbed before 8 a.m.?I’d say that’s a pretty good start to the day.
Anne and I joined in on The November Project bright (well, dark) and early this morning!The Project started a few years ago and is basically a free, open, community-minded workout. It began in Boston (and was originally slated to only run in November, hence the name), but has spread over time and space since!About 50-60 people showed up for a 60-minute workout. The routine:
1. Lots of stairs2. Lots of burpees and pushupsMy hamstrings were definitely hurting by the last round!
A decent workout that gets extra points for being 1) free and 2) extremely welcoming and supportive. If you’re looking to meet other crazy fitness people in the wee hours of the morning, you should definitely head to the Lincoln steps at 6:30s on Wednesdays. I’d give the November project a 6.5/10.
Our whole crew — in blurry beauty! It’s hard to find a good street photographer these days.At least the random person who took this photo from last night had better skillz — he even managed to get the girl standing behind me to smile! 😉The girl next to me, though, is Wave from the trendy Pich and Roor. After I won a giftcard to SweetGreen at the fashion bloggers event the other week, we decided to have a salad date! So good.My goals for the day: try and recreate this salad and take the elevator as much as possible.
