Happy Sunday, and Happy Halloween! I hope that everyone had a great week. I’m getting ready to hand out candy to all the kids tonight. Not sure how many kids we will get tonight but I made 30 candy bags so I’m sure that’s more than enough.

Orangetheory Fitness- The Burpee Breach (45 minutes)
Sundays with Love 10/24/21 – Ally (30 minutes)
Another Hell Week workout done! I know this sounds crazy but I actually enjoy burpees so this class was perfect for me. We had 5 variations of burpees and I loved them all 🙂 Overall it was a hard class, but felt easier than the class the day before. Just one Peloton class today. Starting last year, my company gives us two official Mental Health Days off and today was out second one of the year. I could have done more Peloton workouts, but I decided to slow down for the day and rest after the OTF class.

Warm Up Walk 10/24/21 – Joslyn (10 minutes)
BHM: Motown Run 2/17/21 – Matty (30 minutes)
BHM: Movie Buff Ride 3/1/21 – Kendall (45 minutes)
Dance Cardio 10/7/21 – Emma & Cody (20 minutes)
Loved Matty’s BHM Motown Run. I’ve had this class bookmarked for a while so I’m glad I finally took it. The music was great (you can’t go wrong with Motown) and I always get a history lesson whenever I take a class with Matty. I think I’m going to start filming myself doing the dance cardio classes because it’s quite comical. I finally caught on to the routine after about 10 minutes, lol.

Orangetheory Fitness – Decoding the Drop Set (45 minutes)
Labrinth Run 10/26/21 – Joslyn (20 minutes)
Core Strength 5/30/21 – Erik (15 minutes)
HIIT Cardio 9/25/20 – Jess (10 minutes)
Elton John Yoga Flow 10/27/21 – Kristin (30 minutes)
I’m halfway through the required classes for Hell Week! This class actually wasn’t bad at all. I love drop sets and there were a variety of moves. This was my first run with one of the new UK treadmill instructors, Joslyn. I liked her! I think she actually talks a little less than other instructors which is nice if you want to really hear the music.

Warm Up Walk 10/1/21 – Marcel (10 minutes)
Elton John Run 10/27/21 – Jon (20 minutes)
Elton John Cool Down Run 10/27/21 – Susie (10 minutes)
Elton John Walk 10/27/21 – Jess K (30 minutes)
To put it nicely, this day was an absolute sh*tshow. I woke up super sore and very tired so I decided to work out in the evening. I’ve had a 2 day virtual conference at work this week which kept me pretty busy. On breaks I would answer emails/do a little work on open projects and then go right back to the conference. During one of the breaks I drove my mom and sister to an appt. I was sitting in the parking spot checking my email and a woman backed her SUV right into my car. She obviously wasn’t paying attention so I was glad I was still in the car so she couldn’t just leave the scene. Granted it’s something that can be easily repaired and I can still drive my car with no issues, but I just got my car detailed on Saturday so I was kind of pissed.
Then when I logged off my laptop I started my workout but had to walk about half of the Elton John run because I received an urgent email to proofread a brief so I pretty much had to walk on the treadmill and take care of that. After that I was just too annoyed to really focus on any type of workout so I just did a walk. Overall it was a crappy day.

Iceland Hike – Ben & Jess (20 minutes)
HIIT Cardio 10/28/20 – Jess (10 minutes)
Orangetheory Fitness – Meltdown (60 minutes)
Warm Up Ride 8/30/21- Mayla (5 minutes)
Savannah Ride – Adrian (20 minutes)
Full Body Stretch 1/27/21 – Erik (10 minutes)
Meltdown was the perfect name for this OTF class. We had an entire block of rowing which was just brutal. I think everyone clocked at least 5,000 meters. This was followed by alternating between sprints on the treadmill and power moves on the floor. Peloton has a new badge for taking scenic classes on the bike or treadmill so I decided to do two scenic classes to get that badge quickly. The Iceland hike was SO pretty. It definitely made me want to visit. The bike ride through Savannah was really great too.

Elton John Warm Up Ride 10/27/21 – Bradley (10 minutes)
Elton John Ride 10/27/21 – Jenn (45 minutes)
Elton John Cool Down Ride 10/27/21 – Bradley (10 minutes)
Orangetheory Fitness – Pyramid Scheme (45 minutes)
The Elton John rides were a mixed bag – Bradley’s rides were really good – great music and full of energy – Jenn’s ride was the opposite. It was one of those rides where you just kind of zone out to get it done.
Maybe I’m too sore, or slightly delirious, but the class wasn’t too bad. With a name like Pyramid Scheme I was expecting lots of inclines on the treadmill but the pyramid part of the class was more about chipping away at time on the treadmill and number of reps on the floor for the strength portion. I was happy it was my last class to complete Hell Week and get my shirt. Also, since I was not taking class on Halloween, I decided to dress up for this class.

Pre-Run Warm Up 10/1/21 – Marcel (5 minutes)
Halloween Run 10/26/21 – Matty (30 minutes)
HIIT Cardio 6/9/21 – Jess (10 minutes)
Full Body Strength Warm Up 9/15/21 – Marcel (5 minutes)
Elton John Full Body Strength 10/27/21 – Matty (45 minutes)
Happy Halloween! I knew I wanted to do Matty’s Halloween run today and it was absolutely hilarious. He dressed up as “Jim Bunny” and stayed in character for almost the entire run. I still have no clue how he was able to run in that costume, but as you can see below, he really went all out!
The rest of the classes were good, especially the Elton John strength class, but nothing be the Halloween Run. It was pure comedy.
Total Weekly Mileage: 10.6 miles
Summary: 9 runs*, 7 cycle, 1 yoga and 10 OTF/strength/HIIT classes.
*I include running from my OTF workouts, boot camp classes and stand alone runs.
Peloton Artist Series Classes Progress – 433/435
On Saturday I completed my 3rd Orangetheory Fitness Hell Week. It’s a killer week of classes but I honestly look forward to it each year and I’m already thinking about all the fun corporate will have in store for us next year, lol.
…and now for this week’s memes
That’s it! I hope you had a great week 🙂
