Happy Sunday! I hope that everyone had a great Thanksgiving with friends and family. I’m not really one for Black Friday shopping anymore, but I thought it was interesting that most stores started their Black Friday sales waaaayyyy before this past Friday!

Orangetheory Fitness – Strength (45 minutes)
Caribbean HIIT Cardio 10/16/20 – Jess (15 minutes)
#Nevermissamonday! I really like starting my week off with an OTF workout when I can. We did declining push-ups (feet on the bench, hands on the ground) during the floor block and I actually liked those better than regular push-ups. I know, I know…something is wrong with me, lol. The Peter Maffay classes were part of Peloton’s Artist Series classes. They were both in German but I actually didn’t mind the music, plus Tobias had the most insane amount of energy during his run so it kept me entertained.

Sundays with Love Ride 11/21/21 – Ally (30 minutes)
Bodyweight Strength 10/23/19 – Jess (15 minutes)
I ran to the supermarket super early (like 7am) to finish Thanksgiving shopping before going to class. I was so happy to get in and get out without crowds of people – I absolutely hate shopping during this time of year, especially the week of Thanksgiving.
It was another benchmark workout day at OTF – this time for the 500 meter row. I wasn’t expecting to hit a PR and I didn’t (was off by 5 seconds) but my time was still decent. Finished up my workout with a few short scenic runs, a ride and a bodyweight strength class.

Orangetheory Fitness – Strength (60 minutes)
Turkey Burn Ride 11/25/21 – Robin (45 minutes)
Fit Fam Live HIIT Cardio 11/25/21 – Jess (30 minutes)
Happy Thanksgiving! I kicked off the morning with an OTF class. I always workout in a turkey costume on Thanksgiving and this year was no different, lol. I also did a live Turkey Burn Ride with Robin which was really good. The HITT cardio class was hilarious – at one point Jess was doing a few moves while wearing a turkey hat. She’s definitely my type of crazy!
And as promised, here’s the turkey costume.

I had planned on doing Adrian’s bootcamp live but there were some technical difficulties and the class wouldn’t load. After about 5 minutes I decided to do Marcel’s Turkey Burn Run from Thanksgiving and it was so good! Ross did a great job with the yoga class – such a great flow and stretch.

Adrian’s bootcamp ended with 3 minutes of burpees – that should give you an indication of how sweaty that bootcamp was for me, lol. I also really enjoyed Alex’s ride.

It wasn’t too cold or windy this morning so I decided to do a few outdoor classes. I also figured it was time to finally do Matt’s Turkey Trot from last year, lol. Luckily I ended my run just as it started snowing outside. It was a very light snow so I decided to use the Beyonce Walk as a cool down walk and grabbed some coffee before heading back home.
Total Weekly Mileage: 20 miles
Summary: 10 runs*, 6 cycle, 3 bootcamps, 2 yoga and 8 OTF/strength/HIIT classes.
*I include running from my OTF workouts, boot camp classes and stand alone runs.
Peloton Artist Series Classes Progress – 447/452
Earlier in the week I stopped at Starbucks after an OTF class to try the Sugar Cookie Almond Milk Latte and it was definitely a waste of money. It basically tasted like warm milk – I wouldn’t recommend it. I’ll try another holiday drink next time. Since they retired my favorite holiday drink a few years ago (Gingerbread Latte), I haven’t found another holiday drink that I enjoy.
There are always so many Turkey Trots on or around Thanksgiving, which offers lots of opportunities for great photos. I think this is the second or third year Kim has designed a Thanksgiving collage. As always, it turned out great!
Although I’m sad that the week is over, I am glad that I had a great week off work. It was a busy week but I made an effort to carve out downtime. On Friday I really didn’t do anything after my workout and it felt great. Also tomorrow is my last day off so I hope that will make it a little easier to ease into the week starting on Tuesday, lol.
…and now for this week’s memes
That’s it! I hope you had a great week 🙂
