There’s something about PR Wednesday.
It’s a different vibe than the rest of NP Oakland’s workouts. We run stairs at Cleveland Cascade, the beloved public staircase off Lake Merritt. It’s bookended by apartment buildings, so unlike by the Boating Center, we have to be quiet (#ninjas). But even if we could be loud, we wouldn’t be—the tribe just works too hard on PR Wednesday.
No partners. No circuits. Nothing to keep track of except your laps and your breathing. Just stairs and burpees. It’s a tough one. And this tribe gets after it.
Throw in a bunch of new friends, many dogs, a little post-workout World Cup #breakfastgang, a visit from Alex’s (and Steve’s!) parents, and a new all-time NP Oakland PR Wednesday record set by Tim (13 laps!), and you’ve got yourself a pretty solid start to your weekday.
