Happy Sunday! The first week back after vacation is always the hardest, right? This week was jam packed with a lot of meetings and conference calls but luckily I was still able to get in all of my workouts.
Here’s how my workouts went this week:
Monday, July 13
Peloton Pop Bootcamp 6/20/20 – Jess (60 minutes)
Peloton Philly Soul Yoga Flow 2/10/20 – Kristin (30 minutes)
Another #deathbyjess 60 minute bootcamp class. I don’t understand how someone that looks so sweet and innocent can leave me in a puddle of sweat on the floor at the end of class. I think that doing a yoga class after a bootcamp class might need to be my new combination moving forward. It felt so good to slow down for 30 minutes after an intense bootcamp class and really stretch. This yoga class in particular was great because the music was on point.
Tuesday, July 14
Peloton Celine Dion Ride 12/19/19 – Leanne (30 minutes)
Peloton Live DJ Ride with Madame Gandhi 3/13/20 – Robin (30 minutes)
I wanted to give my legs a day off from any type of running so I opted to spend an hour on the bike. Both classes were good – the Celine Dion ride was more soulful and the Madame Gandhi ride was really energetic – the best of both worlds!
Wednesday, July 15
Orangetheory Fitness – Endurance (45 minutes)
Peloton Desmond Child Run 6/19/20 – Andy (30 minutes)
Peloton Britney Spears Ride 7/15/20 – Cody (30 minutes)
The OTF class was hard! It was endurance workout which meant no walking recoveries and longer pushes on the treadmill – all while wearing a mask. There was no rowing but the floor exercises made up for it. This has been my highest calorie burn so far for the shorter 45 minute classes. When I got home, I did a 30 minute run and ended up with 5 miles for the day. The humidity FINALLY broke so I was able to get outside for a lunchtime walk as well.
I was kind of sore from my morning workout but I just HAD to take the Britney Spears ride live. Cody absolutely loves Britney and I knew the ride would be super fun and it absolutely was.
Thursday, July 16
Peloton Whitney Houston Run 7/1/20 – Matty (30 minutes)
Peloton Whitney Houston Ride 7/1/20 – Ally (30 minutes)
Orangetheory Fitness Plank Challenge (10 minutes)
Working out to Whitney Houston jams was the perfect way to start off my Thursday! After those classes I did the Orangetheory 10-minute Plank Challenge and it was hard! There were two rounds of four different plank moves (1 minute each) followed by a 1 minute “finisher” which was a hollow hold. My abs were on fire!
I had to mail something so I walked to and from the post office during lunch – it was a little over a mile total. I figured I might as well get some exercise while running an easy errand!
Friday, July 17
Orangetheory Fitness – Power (45 minutes)
Peloton Desmond Child Ride 6/19/20 – Jenn (30 minutes)
Peloton Smokey Robinson Yoga Flow 2/18/20 – Denis (30 minutes)
Another great OTF class! The treadmill block alternated between push and all out paces so it was a great way to work on speed. The floor block had something called rolling burpees which involved burpees on a bench – it was my first time doing them and I oddly enjoyed them!
Another trip to the post office resulted in a 1 mile roundtrip walk in the afternoon. Later on that night I did a yoga class with Denis and I really enjoyed his teaching style.
Saturday, July 18
Peloton Britney Spears Power Walk 7/16/20 – Matty (30 minutes)
Peloton Britney Spears Run 7/16/20 – Becs (30 minutes)
Peloton Britney Spears Bootcamp 7/15/20 – Rebecca (30 minutes)
Peloton Britney Spears HIIT Cardio 7/15/20 – Matty (10 minutes)
Peloton Britney Spears Full Body Strength 7/16/20 – Robin (20 minutes)
Peloton Britney Spears Arms Toning 7/15/20 – Cody (10 minutes)
Peloton Britney Spears Warm Up Ride 7/15/20 – Cody (10 minutes)
Peloton Britney Spears Ride 7/16/20 – Erik (30 minutes)
Peloton Smokey Robinson Post-Ride Stretch 2/16/20 – Hannah (10 minutes)
You could say I had a Britney morning full of workouts, lol. Since I’m not training for a half marathon or marathon this year, I’ve decided to make Saturdays my longer workout days. I would usually be spending 2+ hours doing a long run so now I’ll spend that time doing other types of workouts. I was looking forward to this Britney Spears stack workout all week because I knew it would give me a mix of cardio, strength and cycling!
Sunday, July 19
Orangetheory Fitness – Endurance (45 minutes)
Dolly Parton Ride 6/26/20 – Robin (30 minutes)
Great endurance class at OTF this morning. I was surprised that my stats weren’t a little bit better because I felt like I was busting my butt everywhere, especially on the treadmill and the rower, but it was still a great workout. I did a 30 min cycle class when I got home to help flush out my legs, followed by a 10 minute stretch.
Total Weekly Mileage: 17.8 miles
Summary: 8 runs*, 7 cycle class, 3 OTF class, 2 yoga classes and 1 bootcamp classes.
*I include running from my OTF workouts, boot camp classes and stand alone runs.
Peloton Artist Series Classes Progress – 76/99
Grade This Week – A
Week #1 of Pelothon 2020 is complete. The challenge for this week was to take at least one class from each member of your team. Also the charity recipient for this week was the Food Bank of New York City. So happy that Peloton is making a donation on behalf of all its members taking part in this event! I’ll also be following Coco’s lead by making a personal donation to local food banks every week of the challenge. Such an awesome idea!
I’m also making my way through the OTF #Backatitchallenge.
And although it wasn’t a shock at at all, my only race this Fall was cancelled. The Philly Love Run has been moved to March 28, 2021. They didn’t offer an option for a refund – just defer to the new date or run the race virtually. I would have preferred a refund but I’ll just keep my fingers crossed that the race can happen next March (I don’t really have the desire to run a virtual half marathon).
…and now for this week’s meme collection..
That’s it! I hope you had a great week 🙂
