Do I really need to tell you how insanely gorgeous it is outside today? Ugh, fine. You guys: It is insanely gorgeous outside today. Really!
If you’re like me and toiled indoors in front of a computer screen for most of the day, you owe it to yourself to spend some time outdoors this evening. And what better way to soak up the low-80s-with-low-humidity weather than by getting your sweat on outside?
Here are some awesome outdoor workouts and group runs you can get in on this evening. Tell ’em we sent ya. Have fun!
Yoga on the Pier
It just so happens that Race Street Pier’s one evening outdoor yoga class a week is happening tonight. It’s free, and led by an instruyctor from Dhyana Yoga. The fun kicks off at 6 pm.
Outdoor Zumba in Manayunk
The folks over at Sweat Fitness Manayunk have been hosting free outdoor Zumba classes every Thursday night this summer. There’s a live DJ who spins tunes, and it’s a pretty raucous good time. It starts at 5:30 p.m. at Canal View Park (4430 Main Street).
Here are two fun options tonight: Coach Heather Falck (who’s brain we picked earlier this week) leads the free weekly group runs from Lululemon on Walnut Street. It’s three-to-five miles, and ends with food and beer at Ladder 15. Meet at 6 p.m. at the store.
Down in South Philly, Sweat Fitness hosts a free group run that starts at the East Passyunk gym. You’ll end at Jet Wine Bar in Rittenhouse, where you’ll be showered with drink specials. Deets here.
By the by, Thursday night is also one of the most popular nights for neighborhood running clubs in the city. Check out our exhaustive list here.
DIY Outdoor Boot Camp
If you just want to enjoy the weather on your own tonight, may I recommend this DIY boot camp workout can you do, well, pretty much anywhere? It involves cardio and conditioning intervals, and all you need is a stop watch.
