Last night was my favorite — the Tuesday night Lululemon Georgetown run club!
We did one of our standard loops — a 4.2 ish mile run down along the water, across the river to VA, up the other side, and back to Georgetown. It was pretty hot out but we had fun chatting — definitely one of those nights where if I’d been running alone, I probably would have been walking. Ah, the benefits of running with other people — wherein your ego keeps your legs going. :)
We ended our run at the beautiful Georgetown campus.
This was our fearless leader Stacy’s last week working for Lululemon (though she hopes to join for the run club occasionally still — and don’t worry, there are still people to lead the group!), so we had a mini-boot camp after the run in her honor. She went to Georgetown, so it was her boot camp location of choice! Such a gorgeous campus — it was fun to be up there.
Chris from Crossfit Dupont led us in a 4 minute workout named “Stacy.” For 4 minutes, we repeated the following:
- 10 bench step ups (5 step ups on each leg)
- Broad jumps until reaching the sidewalk
- 10 push ups
- Waking lunges back to the benches and repeat!
Whew! It may have only been 4 minutes, but my legs were burning. :) Great workout with great company, too! As I’ve said before — come join us if you’re in the area! The run club is totally free and every Tuesday night at 6:30 p.m., leaving from the Georgetown Lululemon store.
Have a happy Wednesday, friends!
Are you part of a run or workout club where you live? Do you find it helps your motivation to push yourself? My workouts with other people are almost always way more fun and effective than those by myself.
