Returning to November Project – Harvard Stairs


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.

  1. I’ve never heard of this. I’m not at Harvard, but I’ve never heard of the challenge. But, it sounds to me as if Harvard has a LOT of stairs.
    I think it’s amazing the amount of support you get in this group. That’s a wonderful thing.. being inspired by each other.

    🙂 Found you through the blog hop! Fitness Blondie Rocks, doesn’t she?

    • November Project rocks! They have branches across the US & Canada – and all the workouts are free.

      Harvard Stadium stairs are wicked steep. My abs are hurting right now, but I’m glad I did it.

      Yes – Fitness Blondie does rock. Glad that you found me through her blog hop.
