Happy Sunday! It was back to the grind this week. Overall it wasn’t too bad but I’m so glad that I took Monday off. It made it easier to ease back into work. I can’t believe that we’re now in December and that the end of the year is right around the corner! Here’s how my week played out.
Monday, November 29
Warm Up Walk 10/29/21 – Matty (10 minutes)
Saturday60: Full Body Advanced Bootcamp 11/27/21 – Jess (60 minutes)
Cool Down Walk 9/24/21 – Matty (10 minutes)
The Beatles: Get Back Upper Body Strength 11/28/21 – Andy (20 minutes)
The Beatles: Get Back Yoga Flow 11/28/21 – Mariana (30 minutes)
#nevermissamonday! The #Saturday60 class was very difficult so that was the bulk of my workout for the day. It felt like each section was harder than the previous one – she really showed no mercy, lol. I enjoyed both of the new Beatles classes, although at times there were too many breaks in the strength class.
Tuesday, November 30
The Beatles: Get Back Walk + Run 11/27/21 – Jon (30 minutes)
The Beatles: Get Back Ride 11/27/21 – Denis (45 minutes)
HIIT Cardio 9/22/20 – Jess (20 minutes)
Remember a few weeks ago when a woman backed into my car? Well I was finally able to drop my car off to get the dent fixed. I had to drop it off at 8am so I did both Beatles classes, dropped it off, and then did the HIIT cardio class before logging into work for the day. I wasn’t a fan of the Walk + Run class (it was a little unorganized) but the ride and HIIT cardio class were good.
Wednesday, December 1
Orangetheory Fitness – Endurance (45 minutes)
Run + Arms Treadmill Bootcamp 7/29/19 – Jess (45 minutes)
Fit Family Fun HIIT Cardio 12/14/20 – Jess (15 minutes)
Happy 1st day of December! Today kicked off the OTF 12 Days of Fitmas Challenge. Class was actually enjoyable, especially the treadmill block. We were able to pick our own exercise for two 1 minute blocks on the floor. The choices were burpees, pushups or squats. Of course you know I selected burpees…and I was the only crazy person in class that made that choice, lol.
I also kicked off my bootcamp a day challenge for December with an older 45 minute tread bootcamp. The older classes have a different format where you do all the running in one block first and then hit the floor for the strength portion.
Thursday, December 2
Heat It Up Bike Bootcamp 11/26/21 – Cody (60 minutes)
Orangetheory Fitness – Strength (45 minutes)
R&B Walk 5/7/21 – Jess (30 minutes)
AC/DC Yoga Flow 12/1/21 – Kristin (20 minutes)
Cody’s Bring the Heat bike bootcamp an it did not disappoint! I really enjoyed watching Cody on Dancing With the Stars but I’m glad that he is back in New York and can teach more classes. I had to drop off two packages at the post office so I decided to do that over lunch while taking the R&B Walk class. It was nice to get in some steps while also running an errand. I’m doing Robin’s #3for31 challenge this month, which involves logging at least 3 miles a day (walking, jogging or running). It’s definitely manageable since you can split up the miles throughout the day if needed.
Friday, December 3
Pre-Run Warm Up 6/11/19 – Chase (5 minutes)
Heat It Up Run 11/26/21 – Susie (45 minutes)
Post-Run Stretch 6/11/19 – Chase (5 minutes)
Bodyweight Bike Bootcamp 9/15/20 – Cody (30 minutes)
AC/DC Full Body Strength 12/1/21 – Andy (20 minutes)
This was my first time doing a longer run with Susie and it was pretty good. The playlist was just okay but I enjoyed her eating style and the stories that she shared during the run. I also really enjoyed Andy’s AC/DC strength class too.
Saturday, December 4
Full Body Bike Bootcamp 9/15/20 – Jess (45 minutes)
Orangetheory Fitness – ESP (60 minutes)
AC/DC Warm Up Run 12/1/21 – Jermaine (10 minutes)
Cool Down Walk 11/22/21 – Jermaine (10 minutes)
I was really happy with my perfect pyramid – that rarely happens, especially for a 60 min class! I ran a few errands after class and then once I got home I did two classes with JJ to finish up my 3.1 miles for the day for the #3for31 challenge.
Sunday, December 5
Pride Run 6/25/21 – Jess K (30 minutes)
RENT Run 6/4/21 – Matty (20 minutes)
AC/DC Ride 12/1/21 – Sam (30 minutes)
Upper Body Bike Bootcamp 9/22/20 – Robin (30 minutes)
AC/DC Full Body Strength 12/2/21 – Erik (20 minutes)
I have several Peloton outdoor classes bookmarked so I’m working my way down the list. The Pride run was really cool because Jess talked through the NYC Pride Parade route. The AC/DC ride was really good – you can never go wrong with any of Sam’s rides. I wasn’t planning on doing the AC/DC strength or ride classes today but I was feeling energized after my run so I decided to capitalize on that!
Total Weekly Mileage: 20 miles
Summary: 10 runs*, 2 cycle, 6 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 – 457/460
Even though it was a short week for me, work still kicked my butt. It’s probably going to be a little crazy until Christmas but I am using up the rest of my PTO this upcoming week (off Thursday/Friday) and the following week (off Monday/Tuesday) so that should help save my sanity – hopefully 🙂
Other than work, this week was spent putting up Christmas decorations in the house and attempting to do online shopping for gifts. I saw “attempt” because my parents and sister are so hard to buy for and they rarely give me any ideas. Have you started or finished your holiday shopping?
Also, I’m going to work on mailing out my holiday cards next week and I’d love to send you one! If you would like a card, please leave your address here!
…and now for this week’s memes
That’s it! I hope you had a great week 🙂
