Happy Sunday! The first week of 2022 is complete. Was it just me or did this feel like the longest week ever?
The days seemed to drag on and on, especially at work, but I got in a lot of fun workouts this week.
Monday, January 3
Pre-Run Warm Up 12/6/21 – Jermaine (5 minutes)
Heat It Up Run: Boxing Day 12/26/21 – Joslyn (45 minutes)
Heat It Up Ride: Boxing Day 12/26/21 – Ben (45 minutes)
Top 50 of 2021 Core: #50-41 12/26/21 – Olivia (30 minutes)
#Nevermissamonday, especially when it’s the first Monday of 2022! One of my goals this month is to make my way through all of the Peloton Holiday and Stacking Stuffer classes, so I was happy to knock out these two Boxing Day classes. I really, really enjoyed the run with Joslyn because the format of the class was great and the playlist was fun. Ben’s class also had a really great playlist as well. Thirty minutes of core work with Olivia is always pretty rough but I always feel like a badass once it’s done!
Tuesday, January 4
Holiday Run 12/21/21 – Becs (30 minutes)
Cool Down Walk 9/3/19 – Andy (10 minutes)
Santa Monica Ride ft The Doors (15 minutes)
Festive Ride 12/6/21 – Erik (30 minutes)
Top 50 of 2021Upper Body: #30-21 12/28/21 – Chase (30 minutes)
This workout was kind of blah – didn’t hate the classes, but didn’t love them too much either. I was happy to get in a mix of running, cycling and strength.
Wednesday, January 5
Stacking Stuffer: HIIT Run 12/20/21 – Daniel (15 minutes)
Stacking Stuffer: Progression Run 12/20/21 – Selena (15 minutes)
Festive Ride 12/23/21 – Mila (30 minutes)
Holiday: 90s Ride 12/9/21 – Emma (30 minutes)
Holiday: Soul Flow Yoga 12/27/21 – Chelsea (30 minutes)
I didn’t sleep well and knew that I needed to sleep in, so I moved my workout to after work. I will admit that it was nice to get an extra hour of sleep in the middle of the week!
I don’t take enough classes with Daniel. I think I was smiling for the the whole run because he was smiling and laughing the whole time. This was my second ride with Mila. She’s one of the German instructors so her rides aren’t in English, but I enjoyed that ride so much. It was a mix of her energy and playlist – it was just a very fun class! I also really enjoyed the Soul Flow yoga with Chelsea. My quads have felt very tight and I was able to give them some TLC during the class.
Thursday, January 6
Festive Run 12/8/21 – Tobias (30 minutes)
Holiday Classics Ride 12/8/21 – Sam (30 minutes)
Top 50 of 2021 Glutes & Legs: #20-11 12/29/21 – Rad (30 minutes)
Focus Flow: Lower Body 12/2/21 – Nico (10 minutes)
Restorative Yoga 11/27/21 – Nico (10 minutes)
Tobias was definitely in the holiday spirit while teaching his run – tons of smiles and energy and I loved it. Also, it helps me keep the holiday spirit just a little while longer, lol. I think I need to take more of the restorative yoga classes because it was so relaxing!
Friday, January 7
Intervals Run 11/29/21 – Tobias (20 minutes)
Stacking Stuffer: Extra Mile 12/20/21 – Olivia (15 minutes)
Stacking Stuffer: Climb Ride 12/20/21 – Sam (15 minutes)

Stacking Stuffer: Low Impact Ride 12/20/21 – Jenn (15 minutes)
Top 50 of 2021 Bodyweight Strength: #40-31 12/27/21 – Callie (30 minutes)
The stacking stuffer cycle classes are great because I don’t get bored and it offers a little bit of everything. I find that Callie’s classes or either a hit or miss with me. The pace of the strength class was a little slow for me so I didn’t care for it too much.
Saturday, January 8
Stacking Stuffer: Climb Ride 12/20/21 – Christine (15 minutes)
Stacking Stuffer: HIIT Ride 12/20/21 – Tunde (15 minutes)

Saturday60: Hip Hop 1/8/22 – Jess (60 minutes)
Post-Run Stretch 12/8/21 – Joslyn (10 minutes)
The first Saturday60 of the year didn’t disappoint. It wasn’t an advanced class but certainly felt like it! Luckily the playlist was really, really good which made the torture bearable, lol.
Sunday, January 9
Hike 12/29/21 – Jess (30 minutes)
HIIT Cardio 11/20/20 – Jess (20 minutes)
Holiday: Reflections Ride 12/19/21 – Christine (30 minutes)
Nochebuena Ride 12/24/21 – Camila (30 minutes)
That 30 minute hike was very spicy, especially walking at an incline of 12 for the last few minutes of class.
Running – 16.1 miles
Cycle – 64.79 miles
Strength Training – 175 minutes
Bootcamp – 60 minutes
Peloton Artist Series Classes – 486/487
I unofficially completed the Virtual NYRR Resolution Run 5K on Monday. I say unofficially because I forgot that treadmill runs don’t count for the challenge. I think that’s a silly rule but I guess Strava has their reasons behind it.
Thanks to a tip from Deborah I decided to erase all of my previous Peloton PRs and start new as of January 1. This made the most sense to me as some of my previous PRs aren’t really applicable anymore. For example, some of the older 30 minute tread bootcamps used to have two different formats – run for 20 minutes, then 10 minutes of strength or run for 15 minutes, then 15 minutes of strength. The newer 30 minute tread bootcamp classes are in 4 segments alternating between the tread and strength blocks. My PR from the older classes really isn’t comparable to the new classes since there was more running in the older classes, hence a higher output.
One of the Peloton instructors, Matty, posted about doing a “jar of good things” for the year. I think this is such a fun idea. I’m actually not going to do a jar but every Sunday I’m going to write my “good thing” in my planner. It will be nice to look back on all of the good things at the end of the year.
…and now for this week’s memes
Thanks to Deborah for sending these to me throughout the week!
That’s it! I hope you had a great week 🙂
