Post work out photo – I’m in the back right with my pink hood up
Some of you may remember that I started 2014 with November Project, climbing the Harvard Stadium stairs.
Well, now that my work events season is over, I asked my boss if I could adjust my schedule to be able to attend November Project on Wednesdays. I’m so glad I asked and my boss agreed.
I excitedly told 2 of my friends who are November Project regulars that I’d see them on the stairs on the 28th.
When I woke up this morning, I just laughed at the weather. It looked very gloomy – rain & 50 degrees. I wanted to stay in bed, but I figured I hadn’t changed around my work schedule only to flake in a little rain. After all, a November Project verbal (commitment to be at a workout) is a serious thing!
Boy, did my body feel that it’s been nearly 6 months since the last time I climbed the Harvard Stadium stairs. My legs are feeling a bit like jelly right now and my abs are on fire. But I’m proud! I got through 11 sections of stairs.
One of the best things about November Project is the way members look out for each other. Every time I felt like I should quit, my face must have shown it, because I’d hear “You can do this!” or “You’ve got this!” shouted at me in a positive way by someone wearing November Project gear.
I didn’t end up seeing either of the friends I told I’d be there – but that was OK – since the rest of the group was still looking out for me.
I’m looking forward to going back to climb stairs with November Project Boston next Wednesday.
