Happy Sunday! I hope that everyone had a good week. I’m feeling just a little more energized after taking Thursday/Friday off from work. I still feel kind of low energy/rundown but not really sure why. Hopefully the feeling will pass soon.
Here’s how my workouts went this week.
Monday, August 23
Orangetheory Fitness – Endurance (45 minutes)
Recovery Run 6/19/19 – Jess (20 minutes)
Big Band Ride 2/27/20 – Leanne (30 minutes)
HIIT Cardio 7/1/20 – Jess (10 minutes)
Core Strength 10/11/19 – Matty (10 minutes)
Another endurance day at OTF. I’m honestly so sick of all the endurance days at OTF – we need a break! The recovery run was perfect after class. I’ve been taking more rides with Leanne lately to earn a few badges and I like her more and more. She is so positive and encouraging – like a big cheerleader! I need that sometimes, especially in the morning.
Tuesday, August 24
Orangetheory Fitness – Strength (45 minutes)
Pop Ride 3/17/20 – Sam (20 minutes)
90’s Pop Ride 2/27/20 – Erik (20 minutes)
Core Strength 4/9/21 – Matty (10 minutes)
Hills Run 7/23/19 – Jess (20 minutes)
The treadmill portion of the OTF workout felt more like an endurance day vs a strength day so I wasn’t too happy about that. Erik had a really good playlist for his 90s ride – it was like taking a trip down memory lane. The hills run wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be. I really don’t like running hills or any inclines but I know that they will make my legs stronger.
Wednesday, August 25
Orangetheory Fitness – Power (60 minutes)
Pop Ride 1/23/20 – Irene (20 minutes)
Low Impact Ride 2/6/20 – Sam (20 minutes)
Arms & Light Weights 6/3/21 – Cliff (10 minutes)
Core Strength 11/4/19 – Matty (10 minutes)
Yoga Flow 4/30/21 – Mariana (30 minutes)
We finally had a power day at OTF which made me extremely happy since those days tend to focus more on heavier weights and explosive movements. It was nice to gave a break from the endurance style workouts. I loved the playlist that Sam used for his low impact ride – it was just what I needed!
Thursday, August 26
90s Bootcamp 5/30/19 – Jess Sims (45 minutes)
Core Strength 12/18/19 – Matty (10 minutes)
Eric Church Ride 8/25/21 – Hannah C (30 minutes)
Woke up feeling sore and tired so I didn’t end up completing my full stack for the day but I was happy with these 3 classes. I have to say, 2019 Jess was a kinder, more gentler Jess lol. I think she went full on badass sometime in 2020 and never looked back.
Friday, August 27
Core Strength 12/19/19 – Matty (10 minutes)
Eric Church Run 8/26/21 – Selena (30 minutes)
Eric Church Bodyweight Strength 8/23/21 – Callie (20 minutes)
Intervals Ride 2/25/20 – Erik (30 minutes)
Spotify Disney Hits Yoga Flow 8/26/21 – Aditi (30 minutes)
The Eric Church classes were..painful, lol. Oh the things I do to earn Peloton badges! The classes were fine but the music just wasn’t my thing. The yoga class was really cute! I’m not a big Disney fan but it was a nice way to unwind after a long week.
Saturday, August 28
HIIT Ride: Live From Home 5/2/20 – Leanne (30 minutes)
Big Sur Scenic Class – 1 mile
Saturday60: Full Body Bootcamp 8/28/21 – Jess (60 minutes)
Post-Run Stretch 2/23/21 – Adrian (5 minutes)
Core Strength 8/22/21 – Matty (10 minutes)
Another great class with Leanne. The Saturday60 class was a spicy one! The treadmill portion alone had 25 intervals. It was brutal but I got a pretty big PR so I was happy about that 🙂
Sunday, August 29
New York City Scenic Class (10 minutes)
French Alpine Lake Scenic Class (15 minutes)
Core Strength 8/21/21 – Rad (10 minutes)
Intervals Ride 3/3/20 – Ben (45 minutes)
Fit Family Strong HIIT Cardio 4/3/20 – Jess (20 minutes)
I decided to do a little bit of everything today and took a day off from running which my legs very much appreciated, especially after yesterday’s workout.
Total Weekly Mileage: 15 miles
Summary: 8 runs*, 9 cycle, 2 bootcamps, 2 yoga and 13 OTF/strength/HIIT classes.
*I include running from my OTF workouts, boot camp classes and stand alone runs.
Peloton Artist Series Classes Progress – 386/389
Not too much to report this week. I was glad to have two days off work which allowed me to get a lot of stuff done, freeing up my weekend. It was nice to have a weekend totally free where I didn’t have to run a bunch of errands, go grocery shopping, etc.
I was watching the news this morning and kept thinking about all of the people in the path of the latest hurricane. It’s so heartbreaking because I feel like people living in Louisiana have to deal with the threat of a major hurricane every year. I hope that everyone is able to stay safe down there.
…and now for this week’s memes
That’s it! I hope you had a great week 🙂
