Happy Sunday! How was your week? I still can’t believe that 2020 is over and that we’re now in 2021. Of course, nothing has really changed yet but hopefully this year will be much better than the last!
Here’s how my workouts went this week:
Monday, December 28
Orangetheory Fitness – Strength (45 minutes)
Peloton Top 50 of 2020 Ride (#50-41) 12/26/20 – Emma (30 minutes)
The strength day workout at OTF had tons of inclines on the treadmill, which I hate, but there was also an opportunity to lift heavier on the floor which I loved so it all worked out! Peloton also released their Top 50 of 2020 rides – the classes feature the most liked songs from the year. There will be 5 rides total.
Tuesday, December 29
Orangetheory Fitness – Power (45 minutes)
Peloton Top 50 of 2020 Ride (#40-31) 12/27/20 – Leanne (30 minutes)
Another awesome OTF class – they have been killing the workout templates lately. We ended the class doing 3 different versions of burpees and it wasn’t that bad!
Wednesday, December 30
Peloton Advanced Chest & Back Bootcamp 12/21/19 – Jess (60 minutes)
Peloton Top 50 of 2020 Ride (#30-21) 12/28/20 – Alex (30 minutes)
I finally completed all of Jess Sims 60 minute bootcamps available on the Peloton app. I’m proud of myself for getting through the classes this year. I still plan on taking her weekly 60 minute bootcamps next year (she does them every Saturday). Next up – complete all of her 45 minute bootcamps on the app.
Also, I’m really enjoying the Top 50 of 2020 rides!
Thursday, December 31
Orangetheory Fitness – ESP (45 minutes)
Peloton Top 50 of 2020 Ride (#20-11) 12/29/20 – Cody (30 minutes)
Peloton Top 50 of 2020 Ride (#10-1) 12/30/20 – Kendall (30 minutes)
Goodbye 2020 – we won’t miss you! Happy to end the year with really good workouts. At OTF we had a “countdown” workout so we kept counting done the reps on the floor from 10-1 and on the treadmill we started at a 10% incline and then worked our way down. It was a tough, but great workout. The Top 50 of 2020 rides were a lot of fun – Cody and Kendall are always a fun time on the bike. I was wiped out after these workouts!
Friday, January 1
Peloton Trap Bootcamp 7/22/19 – Jess (45 minutes)
Peloton Flash 15 12/11/20 – Jess (15 minutes)
Happy New Year! It was great to start off the year with these two classes – lots of fun but also hard and a great workout. I always look forward to my New Year’s Day workouts because I feel like it sets a great intention for the year ahead.
It was also nice to kick off the year virtually with all of these lovely ladies!
Saturday, January 2
The Beatles Run 12/25/20 – Becs (45 minutes)
The Beatles Ride Vol 1 12/25/20 – Leanne (30 minutes)
The Beatles Strength 12/25/20 – Ben (20 minutes)
Peloton added a bunch of Beatles classes for their Artist Series so I decided to take those for a nice stack of classes. Surprisingly I know a bunch of Beatles songs so the classes weren’t bad. I don’t take many classes with the UK instructors (Leanne and Ben) but I love their personalities.
For the ride I caught up with these lovely ladies via a Zoom virtual ride. It was nice to workout and chat. I really hope to see everyone at some point this year. I miss meeting up with friends at races.
Sunday, January 3
Calvin Harris Run 12/31/20 – Olivia (30 minutes)
Calvin Harris Ride 12/30/20 – Ben (30 minutes)
Calvin Harris Full Body Strength 12/31/20 – Matty (30 minutes)
When I taught spin years ago I would always have Calvin Harris songs on my playlist so I was excited to take these classes. I love his music and the instructors played a lot of my favorites. There were a few moves in the strength class that I haven’t done before so that was a nice surprise too.
Total Weekly Mileage: 16 miles
Summary: 7 runs*, 1 bootcamp, 7 cycle and 6 OTF/strength/HITT classes.
*I include running from my OTF workouts, boot camp classes and stand alone runs.
Peloton Artist Series Classes Progress – 196/202
Grade This Week – A
I am happy that I was able to start off the year with a few strong workouts. I’m also going to make a real effort to do a warm up and cool down after my workouts this year – this is something I absolutely need to keep doing all year long. I’m also working on adopting a more positive outlook for 2021 and I feel like I’m off to a great start with that as well.
On Thursday night I was curious about my yearly mileage so I clicked into the Garmin app and saw that I was at 799 miles for the year – ugh! I wish I had checked earlier because I would have ran an additional mile to hit 800 miles, but I had already showered and started drinking so I just let it go, lol.
I found out about this cool new app called Pelotrak. It’s still in beta testing mode, but you can learn more about it here. I love data so it was nice to see all the different stats pulled together for the year. Here’s some of the great information I was able to pull.
I mentioned last week that one of my Christmas gifts was a new desk. My dad and I put it together this week and I love how it looks. It’s an L-shape desk so it’s a great space solving option for my room. Now that I’m going to be working from home permanently, I wanted to make the space more inviting. I’m going to add some artwork to the wall eventually to complete the look. Here are a few photos:
For reference, here is a photo of my old work station – it was nice and compact but I really needed more space!
…and now for this week’s memes 🙂
That’s it! I hope you had a great week 🙂
