Happy Sunday! Another week down and June is almost over, which is crazy to me. When I realized that next weekend was the 4th of July, I was actually surprised. Maybe the second half of the year will go by quicker than the first half? Let’s hope so!
Here’s how my workouts went this week:
Monday, June 22
Peloton Advanced Bootcamp: Arms & Shoulders 5/25/19 – Jess (60 minutes)
As always, Jess served me some humble pie to start off the week. Her regular bootcamps are great but her advanced ones are next level. I don’t know how she has the stamina to talk and teach us the moves and then do the moves – I can barely get through the moves lol. My arms were screaming at me when this class was over!

Peloton Chainsmokers Run 8/29/19 – Olivia (30 minutes)
Peloton Chainsmokers Ride 8/29/19 – Matt (30 minutes)
Can’t say I enjoyed these classes that much. The instructors were fine and I loved their energy but I couldn’t really get into the songs. I only like one song from each class, lol. Oh well, that’s the cool thing about the Artist Series classes – some are great and some aren’t, but it’s still a great way to learn about new bands and music artists. I also did a very regrettable afternoon walk, it was way too hot though!

Peloton 88Rising Ride 5/27/20 – Emma (30 minutes)
Peloton Machel Montano Ride 2/26/20 – Ally (30 minutes)
I didn’t feel like running when I woke up so I switched up my schedule and opted for an hour of cycling. The 88Rising ride was different – can’t say I loved the music but Emma is a great instructor so it was fine. Absolutely loved the Machel Montano ride because it was mainly Soca music which is always fun!
Thursday, June 25
Peloton 90s Bootcamp 6/13/20 – Jess (60 minutes)
Another spicy bootcamp class with Jess! I don’t understand how she finds new ways to torture us but she does! This class had a 4 minute block at the end of class – jumping jacks and burpees – no rest in-between moves. To put that at the end of the class was mean, lol.
Friday, June 26
Peloton Lady Gaga Ride 1/16/20 – Cody (30 minutes)
Peloton HIIT Cardio 6/16/20 – Adrian (10 minutes)
Peloton Dolly Parton Core Strength 6/25/20 – Selena (10 minutes)
Peloton HIIT Cardio: Live From Home 6/17/20 – Jess (20 minutes)
It felt good to do a few HIIT cardio classes to mix things up a little bit, plus I wanted a day off from running.
Saturday, June 27
Peloton Pop Bootcamp 11/23/19 – Jess (60 minutes)
Peloton Pride Bootcamp 6/27/20 – Jess (60 minutes)
A very spicy, and fun, double workout Saturday. I did the Pop bootcamp in the morning and the Pride bootcamp live in the afternoon. It was my 25th bootcamp milestone class and I normally like to do those classes live. That was so much sweat and cursing involved in both classes, lol. I don’t think I would do this double workout again since it was pretty brutal. I needed a high calorie burn day to complete my monthly Apple challenge so that’s the reason I did two bootcamp classes.
Sunday, June 28
Orangetheory Fitness Endurance, Strength, Power (ESP) Class – (45 minutes)
Peloton Mabel Ride 3/8/20 – Hannah (30 minutes)
FIRST OTF CLASS!! I have to say, it felt amazing to be back and I didn’t realize how much I missed the studio, the coaches and the staff. I was warmly greeted by the staff and coach once I entered the studio – I wanted to hug everyone but of course I didn’t! I was nervous about wearing a mask for class but it honestly wasn’t that bad at all. This morning there were only 6 people in my class (out of a possible 20) – Sunday @ 7am has never been a crowded class anyway so I wasn’t surprised. Here’s a little more info about the new procedures:
– Wait outside (6 feet apart) and wait to be called to enter the studio (you enter one person at a time)
– Your temperature is taken as soon as you enter and you’re asked if you have been in contact with anyone that you know that has had COVID-19
-Use hand sanitizer
– You walk over to the coach and get your assignment (today I was treadmill #3). Every other machine is empty to allow for social distancing.
– The coach lets you know when to start on the machine
– Wipes are provided after you finish each section (treadmill, rower, floor)
– There is no switching, i.e. you are the only person that uses your treadmill, rower and weights on the floor for each class
– After class you exit and follow social distancing, use hand sanitizer and then leave.
I felt safe and was very, very impressed with all of the new procedures that have been put in place.
Once home, I re-fueled with coffee and breakfast and then hit my bike for a 30 minute ride.
Total Weekly Mileage: 16 miles
Summary: 6 runs*, 5 cycle class, 1 OTF class, 1 strength workout and 3 bootcamp classes.
*I include running from my OTF workouts, boot camp classes and stand alone runs.
Peloton Artist Series Classes Progress – 39/82
Grade This Week – A
If you read my Summer Bucket List blog post, you know that my goal is to complete all the Peloton Artist Series classes by the end of August. To help me track this, I’m going to include my progress every week – this should keep me motivated too!
I kind of hit the workouts hard this week, so I’m going to give my body some extra TLC tonight – probably in the form of extra foam rolling and stretching. Right now, everything feels good so hopefully that’s a good sign. I’m just worried about DOMS.
…and now for this week’s meme collection..
That’s it! I hope you had a great week 🙂
