In your workspace, you should be able to type "git init" to convert it to a Git repository. From there, you should be able to create a repo on GitHub and follow the instructions there to add it as a remote on the repo in your workspace.

Alternatively, you could install Git on your computer, and download the workspace files to your computer (the download option should be under the menus in the workspace UI). You'd unzip the workspace files to a new directory, convert that directory to a Git repo, and then add a GitHub repo as a remote on that repo.
