“In April of 2018, the Annual Street Parking Project April was born when founders Julian and Miranda Alcarez put their money where their mouth is and prove that they believe that dumbbells are all you need.” ~ from their website at

Project April

I used to be a member of Street Parking for over a year and when I quit my job in December of 2019 I decided to cancel my membership, temporarily.

Now that I’ve heard from my job (today as a matter of fact) telling me that yes, indeed, we are moving forward with training and full on employment during this strange time of pandemics and isolation – I can now rejoin Street Parking. It was the plan all the time, to rejoin as soon as I had an income again.

So, #ProjectApril – I did my workout today and since I am not yet a member I had to make up my own WOD using devil press and lungesters. So this is what I came up with:

20 Minute EMOM (Every Minute On the Minute)

2 devel press 15# DB

2 lungesters 15# DB

I decided on 20 minutes because I was able to complete the 2+2 in just under 30 seconds, leaving a 30 second rest before the next round began. I also used my lighter weight DBs at 15# so I felt I could hang on for a full 20 minutes. I’m not gonna lie, it started getting a little rough when I had only 6 rounds left to go.

Anyway, it felt good and guess what else? Project April has injected me with positivity and hope.

All of a sudden my brain was like,

Hey Carol, let’s focus on Project April, live your life and stop worrying and fretting over what you cannot control.

I can control my workouts, I can control washing my hands, I can control sanitizing things, I can control the 6-foot rule. I can control my usage of social media and news-watching. I can control what goes in my brain and body.

So that is exactly what I am going to do. Just keep living and doing, granted, with a little more precaution and that’s about all any of us can do.

Sidenote: Street Parking is having a special going on right now, you can purchase a 3-month subscription for only $39.99 – this offer runs until end of May.
