Today kicked off in a way I would have never imagined. Our fearless leaders at November Project, instructed us on Friday to meet on Monday at the Kendall Square T Stop in Cambridge, and that we would be venturing to another location for the actual deck. Well, we all ran in the dark and arrived at 5:30 AM (an hour early for us), to start our short jog. We jogged to a mysterious place that turned out to be – Charles River Canoe & Kayak – for a kayaking adventure. It wasn’t what I expected, but boy was it fun.
The workout consisted of us being split up into teams of 4. Two of us then went to the kayaks to have a race down the inlet, or whatever it’s called, and then the other two had to do laps around the path that surrounds said inlet. In between each lap, we were instructed to do 5 burpees – typical November Project.
I do have to say, over the past few weeks, I have noticed a remarkable change in my form for burpees, as well as my ability and drive to do them – and wow am I proud of myself (giving myself a pat on the back). A few Fridays ago, I tried to skip the stairs at Summit Ave, and Brogan called me out and proceeded to find me a partner and someone to do 10 burpees with. I think this was my turning point, because ever since, I have
hated enjoyed doing burpees – something I thought I would never say.
Overall, it was a wonderful morning and a great way to start the week! Love me some November Project, that’s for sure. Unfortunately, today we had to say goodbye to my first November Project friend – Celeste, who is moving back home to San Francisco. I wish her all the best in her move and can’t wait to see her back here again to visit the tribe, and maybe I’ll even make it out for a workout with her new tribe at some point. I don’t know if she’ll even see this, but I’m cracking up with this picture from my first workout with the tribe back in May of 2013.
Well I think that’s all for tonight. I went to the Red Sox game with a few girlfriends, which was a blast. We went to the Lower Depths in Kenmore beforehand – a spot I would highly recommend – don’t tell too many people though, it’s a little secret spot.
Finally got my new tank from Class Pass and I can’t wait to sport it tomorrow morning to my workout.
How was your Monday? How was your weekend? What is your hidden gem restaurant?
