Happy Sunday. I hope that everyone had a great week!
Here’s a rundown of my workouts from this week:
Monday, May 10
Peloton WHM Celebration Run 3/6/20 – Andy (30 minutes)
Peloton AHM: Pop Ride 5/27/20 – Tunde (20 minutes)
Peloton AHM Celebration Ride 5/27/20 – Emma (20 minutes)
Peloton AHM Celebration Ride 5/28/20 – Christine (20 minutes)
Peloton Focus Flow: Hips 4/20/21 – Kristin (10 minutes)
I really enjoyed this WHM Celebration Run from 2020. Sometimes Andy can talk a lot during runs but this time I enjoyed all of his stories as they focused on phenomenal female athletes at the Olympics. As a former gymnast, I particularly loved when he spoke about the USA Women’s team at the 1996 Olympics. Little known fact about me – I’m obsessed with the Summer Olympics and will watch as many live events as possible – no matter the time of day or event.
Tuesday, May 11
Peloton AHM Run: Live From Home 5/12/20- Becs (30 minutes)
Peloton Chest & Back Strength 7/4/19 – Jess (20 minutes)
Peloton AHM: Power Zone Endurance 5/28/20 – Matt (30 minutes)
Peloton AT’s Ride to Greatness: Game 2 5/1/21 – Alex (20 minutes)
Peloton Focus Flow: Floor Poses 4/20/21 – Ross (10 minutes)
I picked a little bit of everything to take classes with a bunch of different instructors. The chest & back strength class was really good! There was a great mix of different upper body movements and the 20 minutes went by so quickly. I’ve also been loving the 10 minute yoga classes – quick but efficient.
Tuesday was a great day because my dad is finally home! After two weeks in the rehab facility, we were able to bring him home. He still has a long road ahead of him, and he’ll have someone come to the house a few times a week to do physical therapy with him, but he’s getting stronger everyday.
Wednesday, May 12
Peloton 90’s Walk 5/4/21 – Jess (30 minutes)
Peloton AHM Celebration Ride 5/30/20 – Sam (30 minutes)
Peloton AHM Celebration Ride 5/26/20 – Kendall (30 minutes)
Decided to skip my planned run for the day due to a cranky leg. You can never go wrong with a 90’s playlist for a Jess Sims class. I ended up having a great power walk during that class.
Thursday, May 13
Peloton BHM: Afrobeats Bootcamp 2/12/21 – Adrian (45 minutes)
Peloton Scenic Bahrain Run (10 minutes)
Peloton Herbert Gronemeyer Ride 4/21/21 – Erik (30 minutes)
I had a blast during the Afrobeats bootcamp. I’ve done an Afrobeats ride with Tunde and loved the vibe of the music so I knew I would enjoy the bootcamp. Also, it didn’t hurt that Adrian displayed a few dance moves during the class, lol. He can do no wrong in my book 🙂 I also use the Bahrain scenic run as a nice cool down walk after the bootcamp.
Friday, May 14
Peloton Y2K Fun Run 12/25/18 – Jess (20 minutes)
Peloton Extra Mile 7/8/19 – Jess (10 minutes)
Peloton BLACKPINK HIIT Cardio 5/13/21 – Olivia (20 minutes)
Peloton BLACKPINK Ride 5/12/21 – Ally (30 minutes)
Peloton BLACKPINK Power Yoga 5/13/21 – Ross (30 minutes)
I’ll admit that I don’t know any Blackpink songs but I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed these workouts.
Friday was also my mom’s last day of work and she is now officially retired! Originally she was going to retire at the end of the school year but decided to retire a little earlier so she could help with my dad’s recovery. I have been wanting her to retire for years so I’m thrilled for her.
Saturday, May 15
Peloton Pre-Run Warm Up 12/27/18 – Jess (10 minutes)
Peloton Turkey Burn Fun Run 11/22/18 – Matt (45 minutes)
Peloton Mother’s Day Barre 5/9/21 – Hannah (30 minutes)
This was my first outdoor run in weeks. My allergies have been horrendous so I didn’t want to risk running outside to make them worse. I think the 45 minute run was the perfect amount of time for the run. Anything longer and I would have been sneezing and coughing for the rest of the day, but I did take a Zyrtec when I got back home. Doing the barre class after the run probably wasn’t the best idea but it was a good class.
It was also my dad’s birthday! After what he went through last month, I’m just so thankful that we were able to celebrate another birthday with him this year.
Sunday, May 16
Peloton Two For One Mother’s Day Ride 5/9/21 – Alex & Jenn (45 minutes)
Peloton Club Bangers Ride 5/2/21 – Alex (30 minutes)
Peloton APIHM Arms & Light Weights 5/15/21 – Sam (10 minutes)
Peloton HIIT Cardio 5/2/21 – Adrian (20 minutes)
Peloton Gluts & Legs Stretch 10/30/19 – Jess (10 minutes)
I heard that the Mother’s Day ride was good – I’m so glad I bookmarked it to take today. Not only was it a good class, but the love and respect between AT and Jenn was great to see. I’m convinced that Sam wanted my arms to fall off during the arms & light weights class! It’s amazing how much of a burn you can feel in just 10 minutes using lighter weights. I enjoyed the HIIT cardio class but it felt more like a strength class to me.
Total Weekly Mileage: 13.1 miles
Summary: 7 runs*, 1 bootcamps, 11 cycle, 3 yoga and 5 strength/HIIT classes.
*I include running from my OTF workouts, boot camp classes and stand alone runs.
Peloton Artist Series Classes Progress – 266/267
Lots of positive things this week, so I can’t help but feel thankful! I’m so happy that my mom is now retired and that she can enjoy her free time. I think she is nervous about having a lot of free time now but I already know that she will find ways to stay busy. We had a low-key birthday celebration for my dad. It’s so nice to have him home and I can tell he is so happy to be home too. This month I’m also celebrating 10 years at my job. I knew my work anniversary was coming up, but I was still surprised to get this paperweight in the mail. It’s funny because when I started back in May 2011 I told myself I would probably be there 2 years, maybe 3 years at the most – LOL.
When I saw this come across my email earlier this week I just rolled my eyes. This is a slippery slope. I can already see people who are not vaccinated taking advantage of this just so that they don’t have to wear masks indoors. I’ll continue to wear my mask indoors.
…and now for this week’s memes
That’s it! I hope you had a great week 🙂
