Happy Sunday! I hope that everyone had a great week. As expected, this week was absolutely crazy at work since most people are taking off the last 2 weeks of the year. Luckily things calmed down by Friday so I was able to use that day to catch up on email and assignments. I am happy I was still able to get in my workouts despite the all the craziness.
Here’s how my workouts went this week:
Monday, December 14
Peloton Advanced Bodyweight Bootcamp 1/4/20 – Jess (60 minutes)
I can’t put into words how much I didn’t want to workout when I woke up but I knew I would feel better once it was over. I ended up having a super busy day at work so I was thankful that i didn’t put it off until later in the day because it wouldn’t have gotten done. Luckily this was a bodyweight bootcamp so I didn’t need any weights – my body needed a break from weights!
I also decided to rock my ugly Christmas sweater for my weekly communications call for work. It was a big hit. They asked us to wear our most festive outfit so I delivered.

Orangetheory Fitness – Endurance (45 minutes)
Peloton Bike Bootcamp:Core 10/19/20 – Jess (30 minutes)
I worked later than expected on Monday so I didn’t get a chance to write my Tuesday Topics post 🙁 The OTF workout almost killed me. It was a very hard endurance style workout with a lot of intervals on the treadmill with no walking recoveries, and the floor exercises were also really tough too. It was also Harry Potter Day at OTF and although I’ve never read the books or watched the movies, I still wanted to show a little spirit.

Orangetheory Fitness – Power (45 minutes)
Peloton The Jess King Experience Ride 11/21/19 – Jess King (30 minutes)
We had the 500 meter benchmark row at OTF. I was hoping for a time 1:40 or under but I didn’t quite make it. I was a little disappointed but I still earned a small PR. My coach told me after class that taking almost 1 second off my time in September was actually pretty good so I won’t kick myself too much for missing my goal. Although I didn’t hit my goal, my mom not only got a PR but she was first in her age group 🙂
I did an older Jess King Experience cycle class because I had heard good things about it but I just couldn’t get into the class. Those 30 minutes felt long!
Thursday, December 17
Peloton Advanced Chest & Back Bootcamp 11/2/19 – Jess (60 minutes)
Another crazy hard bootcamp class with Jess. My arms were burning by the end of class. I don’t know how she manages to workout as hard as she does, while still talking us through the exercises.
We got a little under a foot of snow from Wednesday evening into Thursday morning, so it was the perfect day for an indoors workout.
Friday, December 18
Peloton Grateful Dead Ride 11/4/20 – Jenn (45 minutes)
Peloton Outkast Full Body Strength 12/3/20 – Adrian (30 minutes)
Peloton Year of Yes Walk + Run 12/15/20 – Jess (20 minutes)
You guys already know how I feel about the Grateful Dead classes, lol. Definitely not my type of music so 45 minutes feels like an eternity. I liked the Outkast strength class but I felt like he took too many breaks. I guess sI’m just used to Jess Sims and how she maximizing her time during classes. I ended up power walking the walk + run class since I wanted to give my legs a day off from running. It was a really good class with a great message about stepping out of your comfort zone.
Kim and I did decided to ride virtually, complete with our holiday attire, it was fun!
Saturday, December 19
Orangetheory Fitness – Endurance (45 minutes)
Peloton Bike Bootcamp: Full Body 9/29/20 – Jess (30 minutes)
Another crazy endurance workout at OTF. The treadmill block was just relentless and the floor wasn’t much better. We had a few 300 meter rows followed by a lot of rep for arm exercises. I was toast after class.
Sunday, December 20
Peloton Advanced Full Body Bootcamp 12/19/20 – Jess (60 minutes)
Peloton Hip Hop Run 12/20/20 – Adrian (20 minutes)
Peloton Elvis Yoga Flow 12/20/20 – Kristin (30 minutes)
As usual, Jess put together a killer advanced class with all of her favorite moves…which meant I was a puddle of sweat by the end.
After I finished the bootcamp, I hopped onto Adrian’s live hip hop run to celebrate my 100th Peloton Run, followed by a little yoga to give my body some TLC.
Total Weekly Mileage: 14.2 miles
Summary: 7 runs*, 5 bootcamps, 1 yoga, 2 cycle and 4 OTF/strength/HITT classes.
*I include running from my OTF workouts, boot camp classes and stand alone runs.
Peloton Artist Series Classes Progress – 186/188
Grade This Week – A
This week kicked my butt and I’m so tired! I’m looking forward to not doing much of anything for the rest of the day. Looking back at my classes this week, there were some really hard classes so I’m not surprised that I’m feeling tired today.
I did 2 more bike bootcamp classes this week so that I could earn the special bike bootcamp badge. I still much prefer the tread bootcamps but the bike bootcamps are still an awesome workout. Speaking of bootcamps, I am going to hit my goal of finishing all of Jess Sims 60 minute bootcamp classes before the end of the year – I only have 2 more left! 🙂 After I finish these, I’ll move on to her 45 minute bootcamps. Her bootcamps are definitely my favorite Peloton classes.
Earlier this month I ordered two funny ornaments from Etsy and I’m so happy they arrived this week. I think they are both perfect for 2020. I also ordered a Christmas blazer from Kohl’s and that finally arrived yesterday. Looking forward to rocking that for Christmas dinner.
…and now for this week’s memes 🙂
That’s it! I hope you had a great week 🙂
