Happy Sunday. The was the never-ending week so I’m super thankful for a 3 day weekend!
Here’s how my workouts went this week:
Monday, February 8
Peloton Bootcamp Warm Up 10/27/20 – Adrian (10 minutes)
Peloton Pop Bootcamp 2/6/21 – Jess (60 minutes)
Peloton Motown Ride 2/23/19 – Alex (30 minutes)
Peloton Full Body Stretch 6/4/20 – Jess (10 minutes)
Peloton All For One Yoga Warm Up 7/3/20 – Anna (10 minutes)
Peloton Holiday Yoga Flow 12/13/19 – Kristin (20 minutes)
#nevermissamonday! I woke up pretty sore from the Sunday’s Lift 45 class but was still looking forward to the #Saturday60 bootcamp class. It was really a great class but I had a weird glitch. After running for about 9 minutes, I noticed that the mileage reset back to 0 so I lost almost a mile of running! I don’t know if it was a problem with my Apple watch or the app. Thankfully I always look at my treadmill to get the accurate mileage number. Also I highly recommend the bootcamp warm up classes – such a great way to warm up your whole body before tackling an hour of sweat and mayhem, lol. I did 30 minutes of yoga after logging off work because my body felt super tight.
Tuesday, February 9
Peloton Core Strength 9/4/20 – Jess (10 minutes)
Orangetheory Fitness – Endurance (60 minutes)
Peloton Move for More: Tabata Ride 12/11/19 – Jess K. (15 minutes)
Peloton Wicked Yoga Flow 1/24/21 – Kristin (30 minutes)
My workday was pretty light on meetings, so I decided to use my lunch hour to take an OTF class. My studio has had a few 60 minute classes on the schedule for months but I have been sticking with the 45 minute classes. This was my first 60 minute class since last March (!) but it actually wasn’t that bad. I did a quick cycle class after the workout to flush out my legs, followed by yoga later on in the evening.
Wednesday, February 10
Peloton All For One Ride 7/2/20 – Multiple Instructors (45 minutes)
Peloton All For One Strength Warm Up 7/3/20 – Jess (10 minutes)
Peloton Pride Full Body Strength 6/29/20 – Rebecca (20 minutes)
Peloton Hike 6/26/19 – Jess (20 minutes)
I simply love the All For One classes. It’s a treat to get to workout with so many of the instructors in one class. I’m looking forward to more All For One classes this year during Peloton’s virtual Homecoming event.
Thursday, February 11
Orangetheory Fitness – Power (45 minutes)
Peloton Wicked Run 1/19/21 – Jess K (20 minutes)
Peloton The Jess King Experience 1/28/21 – Jess K (30 minutes)
Basquiat Celebration Yoga Flow 2/3/20 – Ross (30 minutes)
Very interesting OTF class! It was their first socially-distanced partner row workout. For the first rowing block you alternated rowing 100 meters with your partner. Your partner was on the rower next to you (distanced since we’re still only using odd numbered stations). The second row block was 150 meter rows. It was a lot of fun and it made the class go by rather quickly! The Wicked run ended up being a power walk. I started running but them my hamstring felt a bit tight so I decided to power walk the rest of the class. The JKE ride was fun – Jess K and DJ John Michael always bring the laughs!
Friday, February 12
Orangetheory Fitness – ESP (45 minutes)
Peloton BHM UK Celebration Ride 10/13/20 – Hannah F (30 minutes)
Peloton Full Body Strength 8/28/19 – Jess (10 minutes)
Another good OTF class. This class had dumbbell snatches – one of my favorite moves. Other than that we had a good rowing block and some inclines on the treadmill. I really enjoyed the ride – great music and Hannah F is a really fun instructor.
Saturday, February 13
Peloton Black History Ride 2/19/19 – Jess K (30 minutes)
Peloton Caribbean Bootcamp 2/13/21 – Jess (60 minutes)
Peloton Post-Run Stretch 12/27/18 – Jess (10 minutes)
Started off the day with an awesome virtual group bike ride. Always fun to start off the day with these ladies!
The music for the bootcamp was so, so good and helped pushed me to finish the hardest part of class, which is always the final 8-10 minutes. After the second treadmill block I noticed that my apple watch lost connection with the app. It finally re-connected but it had wiped out all my mileage – ugh! So frustrating since I lost mileage earlier this week too. Oh well, in the grand scheme of things it’s not that important.
Sunday, February 14
Peloton Pre-Run Warm Up 1/3/19 – Jess (5 minutes)
Peloton Bob Marley Run 2/7/21 – Selena (30 minutes)
Peloton Bob Markey Ride 2/3/21 – Denis (30 minutes)
Peloton Arms & Shoulders Strength 9/16/19 – Jess (10 minutes)
Peloton Bob Marley Yoga Flow 2/3/21 – Chelsea (45 minutes)
Happy Valentine’s Day! This holiday isn’t a huge deal for me since I’ve been single forever, but I hope that you have a great day if you do celebrate it! I’ll be celebrating by ordering a heart-shaped pizza and enjoying a glass of wine. After grocery shopping early this morning, I enjoyed doing all of these Bob Marley themed classes. I love his music and these were the best classes to close out the week.
Total Weekly Mileage: 12.4 miles
Summary: 6 runs*, 2 bootcamps, 7 cycle, 4 yoga and 7 OTF/strength classes.

Grade This Week – A
On Tuesday after bouncing around on different websites for hours, I was FINALLY able to book my dad’s appointment for the Covid-19 vaccine. The earliest date was March 6 but I’m going to keep checking to see if I can get him an earlier date. Although Connecticut has a better sign-up system in place than most states, I still found it to be ridiculous. Unfortunately my mom cannot get the vaccine at this time due to all of her allergies. I don’t know when or if she will be able to get it, which makes me super anxious, but I know there’s nothing I can do about it. She’s really good about double masking and washing her hands all the time, especially at her job, and she pretty much stays in the house so she’s doing all she can to stay safe.
Work was pretty crappy this week which lead to poor sleeping a few nights. Just a lot of things going on and not enough time to do them. I still feel like I need to catch up on sleep so I hope that next week will be better. One highlight of the week was my gift from the Stay Home Stay Motivated (SHSM) Valentine’s Day Gift exchange. I love this mug!
Switching topics, something that provided me with endless amounts of joy this week was the video of the lawyer on Zoom with the cat filter. I’ve actually lost count of how many times I have watched this video, and I laugh every single time he says “I’m not a cat”. If you haven’t seen the video yet, click here and prepare to laugh!
…and now for this week’s memes 🙂
That’s it! I hope you had a great week 🙂
