Happy Sunday! I hope that everyone had a good week. My week started off a little rough as I felt super tired Monday and Tuesday. Luckily by Wednesday I started to have more energy. This weekend also kicked off Hell Week at Orangetheory Fitness. My goal is to take all 8 classes from October 24-31 – wish me luck!
Here’s how my workouts went this week:
Monday, October 19
Peloton 2010’s Bootcamp 10/17/20 – Jess (60 minutes)
Always good to kick off the week with a hard sweaty workout. I won’t be able to take the #Saturday60 live for a few weeks but I will make sure to work it into my weekly workouts because it’s my favorite class.
Tuesday, October 20
Peloton Hamilton Run 10/15/20 – Matty (30 minutes)
Peloton Hamilton Ride 10/14/20 – Robin (30 minutes)
I really enjoy both of these classes and I always like when I can get a mix of both cycling and running. Fun fact: I’ve never seen Hamilton but I do enjoy the music from the play.
Wednesday, October 21
Orangetheory Fitness – Power (45 minutes)
Peloton Alicia Keys Ride 10/13/20 – Irene (30 minutes)
This was the first morning when I woke up and didn’t feel super tired, finally! It’s a good thing I wasn’t sleep since I had a 7am OTF class. It was a power day workout which meant harder, but shorter durations of exercises for each block. I really enjoyed the class and my legs felt pretty good during class. I was also able to fit in a 30 minute cycle class once I got home.
Thursday, October 22
Peloton Advanced Full Body Bootcamp 2/15/20 – Jess (60 minutes)
This was a “fun” class..I use that word sarcastically, lol. I’m still making my way through all of Jess’ 60 minute bootcamp classes. Most of the ones I have left to complete are advanced which is just a code word for ‘holy sh*t what is this’. I also had an appointment with my ART doctor – I usually see him twice a week. He really worked on my upper back and left IT band since both have been wonky since my virtual half marathon last weekend.
Friday, October 23
Peloton Punk Rock Run 10/16/20 – Chase (20 minutes)
Peloton Hip Hop Ride 10/18/20 – Kendall (30 minutes)
Peloton Cool Down Walk 11/27/18 – Chase (10 minutes)
This was an interesting line up of classes, but super fun. Every now and then I like to listen to rock music so the 20 minute run was perfect. I was going to do another rock themed run but my IT band area was super sore from the day before, so I opted for a hip hop ride. The playlist was really good – I actually bookmarked it to take it again at a later date.
Saturday, October 24
Orangetheory Fitness – PaROWnormal Activity (45 minutes)
Peloton Afrobeats Ride 8/20/20 – Tunde (20 minutes)
Kicked off day #1 of Hell Week with ‘PaROWnormal Activity’. The whole class was hard but the rowing block was a special type of hell. I did a quick 20 minute cycle class once I was back home. I won’t be doing any intense Peloton classes (bootcamp, long runs, etc) from now until Halloween due to Hell Week, but I’ll probably either do a stretch or a quick ride to stretch out my legs every day.
Sunday, October 25
Orangetheory Fitness – ABdominable (45 minutes)
Peloton Steve Martin Yoga Flow 10/25/20 – Kristin (30 minutes)
I was shocked that the ab dolly didn’t make an appearance today, but we made up for that with burpees and 100+ reps of core exercises. Today’s workout felt easier than Saturday’s class but my shoulders are SO sore for all of the rowing and different exercises.
Total Weekly Mileage: 13.8 miles
Summary: 7 runs*, 4 cycle, 2 bootcamp, and 3 OTF/strength/HITT classes.
*I include running from my OTF workouts, boot camp classes and stand alone runs.
Peloton Artist Series Classes Progress – 156/156
Grade This Week – A
As I mentioned earlier, the week started off rough but I felt like I finally found my groove again towards the middle of the week. I think I may have had some leftover fatigue from the virtual half marathon last Saturday. My body is already feeling the burn from Hell Week and I still have 6 more classes to go – next week should be super fun, lol. But I will say that with all of the craziness of this year, it does feel nice to do something “normal” and I’m glad that OTF is still able to have Hell Week.
On the work front, Friday was my manager’s last day so that day was a total rollercoaster but we had a great group call that day and it went well. I know that we’re going to continue to stay in touch so I’m not worried about that, but it will be odd to no speak to her every day during the work week. The next two months should be super interesting but I’m just going to keep working on my projects and try to close out the year on a positive note.
…and now for this week’s memes 🙂 Thanks to Zenaida for sending most of these to me!
That’s it! I hope you had a great week 🙂
