Happy Sunday! I hope that everyone had a great week. I very much enjoyed my staycation and for the first time the week didn’t seem to fly by, so it felt like I had a good amount of time off. During the week I worked out as usual, cleaned and organized a few things, watched a lot of TV and basically just chilled out – it was great!
Here’s how my workouts went this week:
Monday, July 6
Orangetheory Fitness – ESP (45 minutes)
Peloton JLO Run 10/13/19 – Rebecca (30 minutes)
Day 1 of my staycation! I love ESP days at Orangetheory because you get a little bit of everything. My legs were pretty sore after class but I still wanted to get in a few more miles so I did a 30 minute run once I got home. I ended up with a little over 4 miles for the day.
Tuesday, July 7
Peloton Paul McCartney & Wings Ride 7/19/19 – Denis (30 minutes)
Peloton Philly Soul Ride 2/6/20 – Jenn (30 minutes)
4 mile walk
I was surprised at how many songs I recognized on the Paul McCartney & Wings ride – it was fun! Also I really like Denis as an instructor – I need to take his classes more often. The Philly Soul ride was just what you would guess, soulful! I loved that I knew most of the songs. Philly Soul is the type of music that will automatically put you in a good mood. My mom also had the day off work so we went for a 4 mile walk in the morning.
Wednesday, July 8
Peloton Advanced Core Bootcamp 7/6/19 – Jess (60 minutes)
Peloton Whitney Houston Arms Toning 7/1/20 – Ally (10 minutes)
My least favorite body part to work on is my core so I was hesitant to take this bootcamp class. I was correct to be concerned, lol. It was hard and I had to do modifications for some of the core exercises, but it was a great workout. After class I did a quick 10 minute toning workout for my arms. Let me just say that 3lb weights don’t sound heavy but they get heavy rather quickly when you’re doing 10 minutes of all different upper body exercises with no breaks!
Thursday, July 9
Orangetheory Fitness – Power (45 minutes)
Melissa Etheridge Ride 12/11/19 – Christine (30 minutes)
I really enjoyed this OTF class this because everything just clicked. I felt really good on the treadmill, rower and floor. Also I think I’m getting stronger on the rower which is a surprise, but I’ll take it!
Friday, July 10
Orangetheory Fitness – ESP (45 minutes)
Peloton Billy Joel Run 11/17/19 – Matt (30 minutes)
Every month we have themed workouts at my OTF studio. Today’s theme was Hawaii Day. I purchased some items from Party City to dress up for the occasion (luckily I already had the shirt). It was an ESP workout – endurance, strength and power – and it kicked my butt (although my stats don’t really show that). Followed up class with a Billy Joel themed run which was actually a lot of fun – sometimes I forget how many hit songs he has!
Saturday, July 11
Peloton Cher Run 5/31/19 – Matty (45 minutes)
Peloton Cher Ride 6/13/19 – Ally (30 minutes)
Peloton Coldplay Yoga 11/21/19 – Anna (30 minutes)
These Cher classes were SO much fun! I’ve always liked Cher’s songs and it’s so much better when you can sing along during a workout. It takes your mind off the fact that you’re running a sprint interval!
The yoga class was actually pretty good! I love Coldplay and knew all the songs that Anna played during the class. I’m going to try to commit to doing one yoga class per week. I know it’s not much, but I need to take baby steps, lol.
Sunday, July 12
Orangetheory Fitness – Strength (45 minutes)
Peloton Diana Ross Ride 2/14/19 – Ally (30 minutes)
Fun strength class this morning at OTF. I spent a lot of time on the rower which I’m actually starting to like, but we had inclines on the treadmill which I definitely do not like, lol. Flushed out my legs once I was back home with a 30 minute cycle class.
Total Weekly Mileage: 17.1 miles
Summary: 8 runs*, 5 cycle class, 4 OTF class and 1 bootcamp classes.
*I include running from my OTF workouts, boot camp classes and stand alone runs.
Peloton Artist Series Classes Progress – 57/89
Grade This Week – A
So I joined 2 more challenges this week (lol). Peloton launched their Pelothon 2020 challenge that will run from July 13-August 9. Here’s a little more about the challenge:
“Join us on your Bike, Tread or App for an unmissable series of events and challenges. Work together with your team, earn badges and make an impact along the way. Throughout the month, we’re donating $1 million to four of our hunger relief partners.”
I love that the challenge will donate money to hunger relief organizations since I know these organizations have been hit with increased demand due to COVID-19. There were six teams to choose from and I selected the #LegendsOfFun team – I couldn’t pass up the combination of Jess and Cody on the same team!
I’m also doing the OTF #BackAtItChallenge from July 6-August 31. This is a great way to encourage members to slowly get back in a routine after being out of the studio for 3+ months. The categories include in-studio or at-home workouts, outdoor cardio workouts, changing sleeping habits, healthy eating habits, recovery workouts and OTF at home challenge workouts.
…and now for this week’s meme collection..
That’s it! I hope you had a great week 🙂
