Happy Sunday. Everyone ready for the Super Bowl? I can’t stand Tom Brady so of course I’m hoping that the Kansas City Chiefs win. I always watch the game but the real highlight of this day is the Puppy Bowl! Who doesn’t want to watch cute puppies have their own version of the Super Bowl?
Here’s how my workouts went this week:
Monday, February 1
Peloton Bootcamp Warm Up 11/12/20 – Jess (10 minutes)
Peloton Pop Bootcamp 1/30/21 – Jess (60 minutes)
Peloton BHM: Blues Recovery Ride 10/30/20 – Sam (20 minutes)
Peloton Cool Down Ride 9/26/19 – Robin (5 minutes)
Peloton All For One Yoga Flow 7/4/19 – Multiple Instructors (30 minutes)
I originally planned to take an OTF class in the afternoon but the snowstorm had other ideas. On Sunday night my studio said they would be closed on Monday due to the impending storm, which was totally the right call since we ended up getting around 14 inches of snow. I decided to take the #Saturday60 bootcamp class that I missed over the weekend and followed that up with a very chill and relaxing recovery ride.
Tuesday, February 2
Peloton Pre-Run Warm Up 6/20/20 – Jess (5 minutes)
Peloton Move for More: Hills Run 12/16/19 – Becs (10 minutes)
Peloton Move for More: HIIT Run 12/11/19 – Andy (10 minutes)
Peloton Move for More: HIIT Cardio 12/3/19 – Jess (10 minutes)
Peloton 80’s Ride 5/6/18 – Christine (45 minutes)
Peloton Pelothon 2020 Arms Toning 8/5/20 – Christine (10 minutes)
I wanted to mix things up and take a few shorter, but still effective, classes because I just wanted something different. I’m not a fan of hills, but I told myself I can do anything for 10 minutes, lol. Both the HIIT run and cardio classes were great and I loved Christine’s vibe on the 80’s ride.
Wednesday, February 3
Orangetheory Fitness – Power (45 minutes)
Peloton Move for More: HIIT Cardio 12/10/19 – Rebecca (10 minutes)
Peloton Pop Ride: Chromeo 7/21/20 – Denis (20 minutes)
Peloton Move for More: Climb Ride 12/16/19 – Kendall (15 minutes)
Pelothon 2020 Yoga Flow 8/4/20 – Anna (30 minutes)
For some reason I was sweating buckets in the OTF class. I mean I always sweat but this was excessive. I think they didn’t have the air turned up enough. Regardless, it was a great power workout with lots of all out on the treadmill and heavier weight with shorter reps on the floor. My legs seem to appreciate when I do a short ride after class. I guess it helps with the lactic acid buildup? The pop ride was fun – I always forgot how much I like riding with Denis. My legs felt super tight all day so I opted for a yoga class after logging off work for the day.
Thursday, February 4
Peloton Pre-Run Warm Up 2/3/20 – Jess (5 minutes)
Peloton Move for More: Mile Run 12/17/19 – Olivia (10 minutes)
Peloton Move for More: HIIT Run 12/9/19 – Selena (10 minutes)
Peloton Move for More: Mile Run 12/12/19 – Jess (10 minutes)
Peloton Pelothon 2020 Pop Ride 8/4/20 – Leanne (30 minutes)
Peloton Move for More: Tabata Ride 12/19/19 – Alex (15 minutes)
Another mini stack of 10 minutes classes. I know I can take a 30 minute run, but what I love about the 10 minute classes is that they feel like 3 different workouts and I like taking different instructors as well. Leanne is an absolute joy on the bike – I love her bubbly personality so her rides are always fun!
Friday, February 5
Peloton Warm-Up Run 11/21/20 – Adrian (5 minutes)
Peloton Walk + Run 10/14/20 – Jess (30 minutes)
Peloton Post Malone Ride 1/27/21 – Ally (30 minutes)
Peloton Move for More: Climb Ride 12/10/19 – Christine (15 minutes)
Peloton Post Malone Bodyweight Strength 1/29/21 – Adrian (20 minutes)
Peloton All for One Strength Cool Down 7/3/20 – Andy (10 minutes)
I loved the walk + run class! These classes, and the power walk classes, are great for me right now because they don’t aggravate my knee at all. Honestly, I wasn’t a fan of the Post Malone ride – the vibe was a little off, but I did enjoy the moves that Adrian selected for the strength class. I’ve never done a strength cool down class but I really liked it. I bookmarked the class so that I can take it again.
Saturday, February 6
Orangetheory Fitness – Strength (45 minutes)
Peloton Move for More: Tabata Ride 12/18/19 – Olivia (15 minutes)
Peloton Move for More: HIIT Ride 12/17/19 – Emma (15 minutes)
Peloton Cool Down Ride 5/1/20 – Hannah (5 minutes)
Peloton Bob Marley Core Strength 2/5/21 – Emma (10 minutes)
Peloton All For One Yoga Flow 7/2/20 – Multiple Instructors (30 minutes)
The rowing block during this OTF class was brutal – 300 meter power rows followed by tons of squats and lunges with a medicine ball. We repeated that sequence three times. I did a few short cycle classes to flush out my legs after class and then a short core class and yoga for a nice stretch.
Sunday, February 7
Orangetheory Fitness – Lift 45 Full Body (45 minutes)
Peloton Black History Y2K Run 2/24/19 – Rebecca (30 minutes)
Peloton Unity Ride 10/3/20 – Erik (20 minutes)
Another great Lift 45 Full Body class. I usually never get splat points in these classes but our final block had burpees so that did the trick today! My arms are already sore from the class so tomorrow should be fun. I wanted to get some cardio in so I did a run, well actually run/walk intervals and a quick ride to flush out my legs.
I was glad that I had an early class this morning because I made it home right before the heavy snow started to come down.
Total Weekly Mileage: 14.3 miles
Summary: 10 runs*, 1 bootcamp, 11 cycle, 3 yoga and 6 OTF/strength classes.
*I include running from my OTF workouts, boot camp classes and stand alone runs.
Peloton Artist Series Classes Progress – 216/220
Grade This Week – A
It’s so crazy to me that we have barely gotten any snow this Winter and them Boom – Here comes a Nor’easter! Some parts of Connecticut got 20 inches of snow so I’m glad we “only” got 14. It was pretty bad on Monday since it snowed all day but the clean up on Tuesday wasn’t that bad at all. Luckily it wasn’t the heavy type of snow so shoveling wasn’t too bad. I kind of hope that’s the last big snowstorm of the season. I don’t mind the cold weather but I hate snow.
I love all the different Peloton challenges and badges, so I was stoked when PeloBuddy released their “Full list of Peloton badges and Special Event Awards“! This year I’ll be working on taking all the classes for the badges that are still available (many of the ones from 2017 and 2018 are no longer available). I figured this is a fun mini challenge that I can do throughout the year 🙂
…and now for this week’s memes 🙂
That’s it! I hope you had a great week 🙂
