New York

I headed down to CrossFit NYC for their 8am class where the mistress of the blog, Allison, took us through max reps of bench press, pull-ups and low-bar back squats. Five rounds.

I still find the bench press a profoundly strange exercise: start by lying under something heavy...

I got headspins from the third round of squats, which I think was the result of not breathing correctly; after I'd sat down for a few minutes, I was good to go again. I really need to concentrate on pushing my knees out when I squat: it's something that coaches consistently pull me up on, so I don't think I'm understanding the cue correctly.

Showered and dressed, it was time for one final round of shoe shopping (KSOs for me, orange Asics for Meg), one final round of Magnolia Bakery cupcakes (red velvet stained my fingers) and a trek back to Times Square to find Hershey's Kisses for Alex.

On the way through we were accosted by a woman dresse as Princess Leia. Amusing. Then, a few metres further on, a guy dressed as Princess Leia. The iconic hairstyle is hard to mistake. We stopped to see what this Alderaanian fashion parade was in aid of.

Carrie Fisher's one-woman show, Wishful Drinking, as it turns out. Perhaps we could get a Broadway show in after all. And at Studio 54, no less.

Wow she hated that hairstyle.
