Happy Sunday! We made it through another week – let’s celebrate! Tomorrow kicks off week #4 of WFH for me. I still can’t believe it’s been that long and that we at least have another 4-6 weeks to go. At some point I’ll get into a groove, right?
This week I did a mix of cardio, cross training and strength training exercises. Luckily I’m not lacking motivation to workout, but I am trying to find ways to make the workouts more fun and interesting.
Here’s how my workouts went this week:

OTF “DriTri” at Home Workout
So the typical DriTri workout is a 2,000 meter row, 300 bodyweight exercises and a 3.1 mile run. Since I don’t have a rower at home, I just did the bodyweight exercises and run. My goal is to do this workout once a week to see if I can keep lowering my time. I hope that this will help me once I do the actual DriTri workout in the studio which has been rescheduled for the summer.

Peloton Cycle (60 minutes).
One good thing about being home is that I’m using my bike more often. Loved these two classes with Cody!
Wednesday, April 1
3.7 mile run + OTF at Home Workout.
Birthday workout! I always run my age on my birthday, so this year was no different. The head coach at my OTF was hosting a live at home workout so I joined that once I got back home. I won’t lie, it was a weird birthday with everything going on, but I made the best of it! Thanks to everyone for all of the birthday wishes! 🙂
I also started two different OTF challenges. I actually don’t mind burpees (I don’t love them but I don’t hate them), so I decided to commit to 30 burpees a day for the month. April is Marathon Month so the goal is to get to a certain mileage by the end of the month. Of course I picked the Ultra distance which I know I’ll get since I always run a minimum of 50 miles a month.

Peloton Cycle (60 minutes) + OTF at Home Workout.
I wanted some quality time with my bike so that’s what I did! Cody is my favorite instructor and he makes me laugh during every class.
Friday, April 3
2 mile run + OTF at Home Workout.
I wasn’t sure which type of workout I wanted to do when I woke up, but opted for a short run to get in my splat points followed by the OTF at Home workout. The at home workout was pretty hard but I liked it!
Saturday, April 4
4 mile run.
The run was actually pretty good but I was a little anxious about the run even before I left the house. With the new CDC recommendation that we should wear some type of cloth covering over our mouth/nose when outside, I decided to start running with a Buff. Part of me was like should I even be going outside? Should I just run on the treadmill? Ultimately I decided to go outside for my run. I am trying to do all the right things and taking precautions but I just wonder if I’m doing enough.
In the afternoon I joined a Zoom meeting with my blogger friends. It was so much fun and exactly what I needed! I enjoyed seeing all of their faces 🙂
Sunday, April 5
Peloton Cycle (45 minutes) + OTF at Home workout.
I felt like I needed a high energy workout this morning so I took a few classes with Alex. His hip hop classes are always SO good. After the classes I did today’s OTF at home workout and it was pretty good!
Total Weekly Mileage: 12.7 miles
Summary: 4 runs*, 7 cycle class, 4 OTF at home workouts.
*I include running from my OTF workouts and stand alone runs as well.
Grade This Week – A
This week I really tried to focus on things that I could control, which definitely helped with my mood. I’ve been limiting my news intake because it’s just all too much and there’s so much conflicting information that it drives me bonkers.
While I was browsing Facebook the other day, I came across this post from Erica and I really loved it. One thing I’ve struggled with it trying to keep work “business as usual” while it seems like the world around us is falling apart – it’s hard. I also notice that I’m working more hours as well. It’s a hard thing to navigate and seeing that post made me realize that I’m not alone in my thinking.
I also saw this post on Instagram and shared it immediately. I’m SO thankful to all of the essential workers that are still going to work every day. I imagine that they are probably feeling so stressed during this time. A small THANK YOU can go a long way so I’m just trying to make sure I thank these workers as often as I can.
…and because I always like to end my posts with a little humor..
That’s it! I hope you had a great week 🙂
