Happy Sunday! I still can’t believe that we started August today. I don’t know about you but I always love the first day of a new month because it feels like a chance to hit the reset button.
Here’s how my workouts went this week.
Monday, July 26
Orangetheory Fitness – Endurance (45 minutes)
Walk + Run 7/20/21 – Jess (20 minutes)
Extra Mile 10/17/19 – Jess (10 minutes)
LHM Celebration Ride 9/23/20 – Erik (30 minutes)
It was 2,000m Benchmark Row day at OTF. I wasn’t surprised that I didn’t PR this time. Actually, I knew about 1,000 meters in that I wouldn’t PR but I still tried to finish with a respectable time. The average finish time is between 6-10 minutes so I’m happy being right in the middle at 8:02. The rest of the class was kind of a blur since I was tired, lol.
Tuesday, July 27
LHM: Power Zone Endurance Ride 10/3/20 – Matt (30 minutes)
Cool Down Run 2/2/21 – Jess (10 minutes)
Arms Toning 2/15/21 – Cliff (10 minutes)
Orangetheory Fitness – Strength (45 minutes)
LHM Celebration Run 10/9/20 – Jess K (20 minutes)
WHM Broadway Yoga Flow 3/7/21 – Kristin (30 minutes)
Even though I took the runs easy, they were hard since my legs were tired. It was a strength day at OTF and we had drop sets which are my favorite. Plus it was all upper body moves which I appreciated since my legs felt like lead.
Wednesday, July 28
WHM Celebration Run 3/13/21 – Becs (20 minutes)
Extra Mile 2/18/20 – Jess (10 minutes)
LHM Celebration Ride 9/27/20 – Kendall (30 minutes)
LHM: Listening Party Ride 10/8/20 – Emma (30 minutes)
BHM Celebration Full Body Strength 2/19/21 – Jess (30 minutes)
When I woke up I really had no desire to work out. Part of me wanted to put it off until after work, but ultimately I decided to get up and get it done. Thank goodness I did because it ended up being an insane work day due to q quick turnaround for a new project.
Thursday, July 29
Sydney Sunrise Scenic Class (10 minutes)
Bali Beach Scenic Class (10 minutes)
Sagres Forest Scenic Class (20 minutes)
Verzuz Ride 7/21/21 – Alex (45 minutes)
HIIT Cardio 12/4/19 – Jess (15 minutes)
Fit Family Fun HIIT Cardio 4/3/20 – Jess (15 minutes)
WHM Celebration Yoga Flow 3/8/21 – Chelsea (30 minutes)
My legs appreciated a day off from running, that’s for sure! I enjoyed my walks through Sydney, Bali and Sagres (again!) and it made me really want to visit these places eventually, especially Bali. The beach was SO beautiful! The Verzuz ride had a great playlist so that was fun and I enjoyed the HIIT cardio classes as I haven’t done those types of classes in a while.
Friday, July 30
HRZ Power Run 8/27/19 – Jess (45 minutes)
Arms & Shoulders Strength 9/18/19 – Jess (10 minutes)
Core Strength 4/2/21 – Jess (20 minutes)
Usain Bolt 2010s Ride 7/23/21 – Hannah F (30 minutes)
Reflection Ride 7/25/21 – Christine (20 minutes)
Mood Full Body Stretch: Calm 7/28/21 – Selena (15 minutes)
I’ll probably start adding at least one 45 minute run to my schedule for the next few weeks to help with training for an upcoming virtual 10k. I like the HRZ runs because it’s really helps me to zone in on my jogging vs. running paces. The other classes were great and I the 15 minute stretch felt amazing, especially after the run.
Saturday, July 31
Orangetheory Fitness – Strength (45 minutes)
90s Walk 7/28/21 – Jess (20 minutes)
Two For One: WHM Celebration Ride 3/17/20 – Leanne & Hannah F (30 minutes)
Beginner Yoga Flow 5/2/21 – Nico (30 minutes)
I feel like I’ve done a bunch of strength classes a OTF lately but I’m okay with that. It was Harry Potter Day at the studio so my mom and I dressed up a little (tie, shirt and glasses). My coach actually got some footage (last slide) of my mom and I rowing (I didn’t even know she was filming, lol).
Sunday, August 1
Hips Stretch 12/4/18 – Christine (5 minutes)
WHM Celebration Ride 3/8/20 – Christine (60 minutes)
Full Body Strength Warm Up 4/22/21 – Jess (10 minutes)
Full Body Strength 5/1/21 – Jess (45 minutes)
Fit Family Brain Break HIIT Cardio 12/28/20 – Jess (5 minutes)
This stack was spicy! Decided to give my legs a break from running today. Somehow Jess was able to fit in an EMOM, AMRAP and Tabata section all in the last 15 minutes of class. Oh, did I mention she started off with turkish getups after the warm up? It was a hard class, but good.
Total Weekly Mileage: 14.3 miles
Summary: 10 runs*, 9 cycle, 3 yoga and 11 OTF/strength/HIIT classes.
*I include running from my OTF workouts, boot camp classes and stand alone runs.
Peloton Artist Series Classes Progress – 371/373
Earlier in the week I noticed a nice sized bruise on my thigh after I was done with my workout. I vaguely remember hitting my leg on Monday or Tuesday as I was working with heavier weights at OTF, but I didn’t think I hit my leg that hard. It’s just odd because I rarely get bruises and this one kind of itches too. It’s slowly getting smaller so I hope that it’s completely gone soon.
This month I’ll start doing a few longer runs (45 minutes or more) in preparation for the Back on My Feet Running Festival 10K. I’m still not ready for in-person races, so I love that this running festival is virtual and supports a good cause. I won’t be following a particular training plan, but will still continue with my Peloton runs. It’s really more about time on my feet vs a speed goal. (If you’re interested in running, all races distances are $30 and you can use code “BibRave5!” for $5 off registration).
…and now for this week’s memes
That’s it! I hope you had a great week 🙂
