Happy Sunday! Is anyone else still feeling the aftermath of Daylight Savings Time? Usually I get back “on schedule” after 2-3 days but I’m still all out of wack for some reason. My sleep has been non-existent/sporadic so I hope I can get back on track next week.

Warm Up Walk 8/20/19 – Chase (10 minutes)
Saturday60: 2010s Bootcamp 11/6/21 – Jess (60 minutes)
The Jess King Experience Ride 12/17/20 – Jess K (30 minutes)
Post-Ride Stretch 10/14/21 – Cliff (10 minutes)
I’m still playing catch up after missing the last few live Saturday60 bootcamps – and this was a good one! The playlist was A+ and she played a bunch of “listening games” since it was a music based class.
Tuesday, November 9
Walk + Run 11/2/21 – Jess (20 minutes)
The Jess King Experience Ride 1/7/21 – Jess K (30 minutes)
Spotify Today’s Top Hits Core Strength 11/3/21 – Olivia (20 minutes)
Orangetheory Fitness – Endurance (45 minutes)
Spotify Lofi Beats Yoga Slow Flow 11/3/21 – Nico (30 minutes)
Lots of rowing and running for the OTF class. There was also a bonus “coaches choice” core block and I’m convinced our coach was trying to kill us. Thank goodness it was only 5 minutes long. A little slow flow yoga was definitely needed after these classes.
Wednesday, November 10
Orangetheory Fitness – Power/Strength (45 minutes)
Spotify Indigo Run 11/3/21 – Matt (20 minutes)
Dance Cardio 10/7/21 – Callie & Jess K (20 minutes)
Dance Cardio Stretch 10/7/21 – Multiple Instructors (10 minutes)
We worked our legs for basically the entire OTF class – it was rough! I originally wanted to do a ride as well but I ran out of time to do it before logging into work. Plus I was pretty stiff from the OTF class and sitting all day on conference call so I decided to take a dance cardio class and stretch to loosen up. Again, these dance cardio classes provide endless entertainment for me because I’m so bad, lol.

Warm Up Walk 7/7/19 – Selena (10 minutes)
Saturday60: Advanced Full Body Bootcamp 10/20/21 – Jess (60 minutes)
The Jess King Experience Ride 1/14/21 – Jess K (30 minutes)
Arms & Light Weights 9/30/21 – Cliff (10 minutes)
Veteran’s Day Yoga Flow 11/11/21 – Kristin (20 minutes)
Was it a good idea doing a 60 minute tread bootcamp after trashing my legs in Wednesday’s OTF workout? No, it was not…but I flexed my mental muscle to get through it. It honestly wasn’t too bad but the inclines for the running portion were pretty tough. Peloton also released a few Veterans Day classes so I decided to take the yoga class a few hours before bed.
Friday, November 12
Veterans Day Run 11/11/21 – Marcel D. (30 minutes)
Veterans Day Ride 11/11/21 – Alex (30 minutes)
Veterans Day Ride 11/11/21 – Christine (20 minutes)
Beyonce Two For One Strength 11/10/21 – Adrian & Callie (30 minutes)
I finished up the Veterans Day classes which were all great. Marcel’s playlist only featured artists that served and I learned that MC Hammer served in the Navy – who knew?! The Beyonce strength class was a lot of fun and I think it was the first time two instructors have taught a strength class together.

Sundays with Love Ride 11/7/21 – Ally (30 minutes)
Arms & Light Weights 11/2/21 – Cliff (10 minutes)
Fit Family Fun HIIT Cardio 4/3/20 – Jess (15 minutes)
Orangetheory Fitness – Endurance (60 minutes)
Yoga Flow 5/1/21 – Kirra (30 minutes)
The OTF class features one of their signature workouts called “The Chipper”. Basically you chip away at reps on the floor and at time on the treadmill. I think it’s one of their harder workouts, as evidence by the amount of splat points I got – yikes!
Sunday, November 14
New Mexico Scenic Class – Selena (20 minutes)
The Jess King Experience 1/21/21 – Jess K (30 minutes)
The Jess King Experience 11/4/21 – Jess K (30 minutes)
Beyonce Dance Cardio 11/10/21 – Cody & Jess K (20 minutes)
Fit Family Fun HIIT Cardio 7/28/20 – Jess (15 minutes)
Peloton always knocks it out of the park with their scenic content classes. I know think I need to add New Mexico to my “places to visit” list, lol. I attempted the Beyonce dance cardio class. It was labeled advanced which was 100% accurate. I spent a good amount of time laughing at myself because I’m sure I looked crazy trying to learn the dance moves, lol.
Total Weekly Mileage: 15.3 miles
Summary: 6 runs*, 8 cycle, 2 bootcamps, 3 yoga and 10 OTF/strength/HIIT classes.
*I include running from my OTF workouts, boot camp classes and stand alone runs.
Peloton Artist Series Classes Progress – 436/438
As the title of this post states, I’m SO ready for my staycation. I just have to get through this next week of work, which I’m sure will be hectic, but at least I will have the week of Thanksgiving off. I’m not traveling anywhere but just not logging into my work email is truly a vacation.
Speaking of Thanksgiving, my OTF studio partnered up with the Vizer app to donate meals to those in need. Basically we just have to download the app, check in at the studio after our class, and then the app donates a meal to a local food bank. It’s such a cool concept! Since it’s linked to my Apple Watch, I can actually use it to donate a meal after any workout (you need to log a minimum of 30 minutes of activity to done a meal).
…and now for this week’s memes
