Happy Sunday 🙂 I hope that everyone had a great Thanksgiving holiday. I indulged a little too much on Thanksgiving Day and this weekend – whoops! Time to get back on track this week.
Today we’re experiencing our first snow of the season. Thankfully we didn’t get many inches of snow, but it’s mixed with rain and sleet so it’s a little slippery out there. Hopefully tomorrow’s work commute will be okay.
Since I had two days off this week (Thanksgiving and the day after), I decided to take advantage and do a few extra OTF classes. Here’s a list of my workouts for the week!
Monday, November 25
OrangeTheory Fitness (Power) – 60 minutes.
I’m convinced that this was a rejected Hell Week workout. Both the floor and treadmill blocks were brutal, but I always feel so accomplished once the workout is over!
Tuesday, November 26
Rest Day. This was an unexpected rest day but much needed 🙂
Wednesday, November 27
OrangeTheory Fitness (Endurance) – 60 minutes
Happy Thanksgiving Eve! Started off the day with a morning OTF class since I had to work the rest of the day. It felt good to get my burn on before Thanksgiving.
Thursday, November 28
OrangeTheory Fitness – (ESP) 60 minutes + Harbor Point Turkey Trot 5K
Happy Thanksgiving! I started off the day with a local Turkey Trot. It’s a free, untimed 5K about 10 minutes from my house. It was pretty fun. I haven’t run this race in 2 years so it was great to see how much it’s grown! About an hour after the race, I headed up to my OTF studio to take a class. I was pretty beat after both workouts but it was well worth it!
Friday, November 29
OrangeTheory Fitness (Strength) – 60 minutes.
Happy Black Friday! Did you get any good deals? I refuse to step foot in a store on Black Friday, but I am all about the online shopping and got some great deals!
This was a strength workout but felt more like an endurance workout.
Saturday, November 30
3 mile run + Peloton Cycle (30 minutes).
I was happy to break in my new sneakers on the treadmill for this run. I’m always very nervous about running in a new model of sneakers, but luckily these felt great! The Peloton cycle class was also a lot of fun because it was a DJ ride. The music was SO good!
Sunday, December 1
OrangeTheory Fitness (A Workout Full of Burpees) – 60 minutes
Happy 1st day of December! Today marks day 1 of the 12 Days of Fitness at OTF! Each day will have a different theme/workout (see below). If you complete 7 of the 12 workouts you get a cool pair of ALL OUT socks.
Originally I was going to try to fo all 12 days but I’m traveling for work half of this week so unfortunately that’s not possible. However, I will get in my 7 days to get the socks. This workout had 4 variations of burpees, tons of rowing and all out paces on the treadmill. To say I was a sweaty mess would be an understatement, lol.
Total Weekly Mileage: 10.7 miles
Summary: 1 runs, 5 OTF workouts, 1 cycle classes
Grade This Week – A
As you can see, this week was loaded with OTF classes. I didn’t really plan that, it just happened since I had more free time than usual. Moving forward I would prefer to do 3-4 days a week to have more time for spinning and running. Also today’s class was at 7am. While I’m an early bird, I do like to keep one day a week (usually Sunday) to “sleep in” until 7 or 7:30. But I have to say, I actually enjoyed doing the class that early and having the rest of my day free to do laundry and put up Christmas decorations. I actually may do that more in the future!
One fun thing that started this week was the FitApproach #HolidaySweat Challenge. From Thanksgiving to New Year’s Day you commit to 10 minutes of activity daily. It’s a great way to hold myself accountable over the holidays!
Totally random, but have you seen the 10 year challenge posts on social media? I almost posted one but then my friend posted this one and decided that I couldn’t do any better than that, LOL.
That’s it! I hope you had a great week 🙂
