Happy Sunday! Let me be the first to say that I’m thrilled the heatwave is finally over. This week was just brutal and it seemed like it was super hot everywhere.
Here’s how my workouts went this week.
Monday, June 28
Orangetheory Fitness – ESP (60 minutes)
Pride Celebration Ride 6/21/21 – Erik (45 minutes)
Pride Bodyweight Strength 6/21/21 – Erik (20 minutes)
Core Strength 3/16/21 – Irene (5 minutes)
Core Strength 6/28/21 – Jess (5 minutes)
For some reason the OTF class ran over (by 5 minutes), so I couldn’t stay for the stretching block (which I paid for later). Both of Erik’s Pride classes were good. I really like his personality and he ALWAYS has a smile on his face so it’s hard not to enjoy a workout with him.
Tuesday, June 29
Warm Up Walk 6/25/21 – Jess (10 minutes)
Casablanca Records Live DJ Run 6/25/21 – Adrian (30 minutes)
New Queer Musicians Full Body Strength 6/22/21 – Matty (30 minutes)
Casablanca Records Ride 6/22/21 – Cody (30 minutes)
Post-Ride Stretch 5/13/21 – Kendall (5 minutes)
Core Strength 3/22/21 – Irene (10 minutes)
I totally overdid it on Monday. I felt fine after my OTF class so that’s why I did another strength and cycle class but it was definitely a little too much for my legs. Originally I was supposed to do an OTF class in the afternoon but I re-scheduled that for Wednesday and decided to do this stack and take the run and ride easy. The Casablanca Records classes were really a lot of fun. it was pretty much a disco party on the treadmill and bike.
Wednesday, June 30
Orangetheory Fitness – Strength (60 minutes)
HIIT Cardio 11/7/19 – Jess (10 minutes)
Pride Celebration Ride 6/27/21 – Christine (30 minutes)
Post-Ride Stretch 1/2/20 – Sam Yo (5 minutes)
Core Stretch 3/16/21 – Irene (5 minutes)
Pride Icons Slow Flow 6/27/21 – Chelsea (30 minutes)
OTF felt more like an ESP (endurance, strength, power) day because there was a little bit of everything. I was not a fan of the inclines on the treadmill, but then again, I never am, lol. The core stretch and yoga classes felt great. I also finished up the Strong Core Strong Body program with Irene.
Thursday, July 1
Singapore Scenic Run (30 minutes)
90s Rock Champions Ride 6/29/21 – Ben (30 minutes)
Pride Celebration Full Body Strength 6/24/21 – Adrian (30 minutes)
John Florence Rock Champions Ride 6/24/21 – Leanne (30 minutes)
Arms Toning 1/21/21 – Cliff (10 minutes)
Pride Celebration Yoga 6/30/21 – Denis (30 minutes)
I like to throw in scenic runs/walks every week. It’s my form of vacation currently, lol. I did the Singapore class as a powerwalk to give my legs a day off from running.
Friday, July 2
Orangetheory Fitness – ESP (60 minutes)
HIIT Cardio 11/21/19 – Jess (10 minutes)
AFO Ride: Jessie Ware 7/1/21 – Leanne (15 minutes)
AFO Cool Down Ride: Jessie Ware 7/1/21 – Leanna (10 minutes)
Go Canada! Bodyweight Strength 7/1/21 – Ben (20 minutes)
AFO Yoga Flow: Jessie Ware 7/1/21 – Kirra (20 minutes)
The OTF class was good and I finally ran into a few members that I used to take classes with regularly pre-pandemic. It was great to see them! I also took my first Peloton All For One classes. I had never heard Jessie Ware’s music but it was really fun and upbeat. I don’t know if I will add it to my playlist, but it definitely wasn’t bad. I always love Ben’s strength classes and this one was no different.
I also hit my 150th yoga class.
Saturday, July 3
This weekend I decided to treat it as a real music festival and try to get in as many “shows” as possible. Here was my morning stack.
Warm Up Run 9/3/19 – Jess (10 minutes)
Trap Run 1/19/21 – Jess (20 minutes)
AFO Full Body Strength: Migos 7/2/21 – Adrian (45 minutes)
AFO Ride: Migos 7/2/21 – Alex (30 minutes)
AFO Full Body Stretch: Gorgon City 7/1/21 – Ben (10 minutes)
Honestly I haven’t had this much fun working out in a long time. All these classes were SO good. The run classes weren’t part of the festival lineup but the playlist for the trap run was fantastic. I’ve been looking forward to the Migos classes all week and they both did not disappoint! I see myself doing the strength class again because it was just that good.
After an “intermission” for lunch, I hopped back on the bike and got in a core class too. It was nice to ride with Robin again as she’s just come back from maternity leave.
AFO Ride: Daddy Yankee 7/2/21 – Robin (20 minutes)
AFO Ride: Doja Cat 7/3/21 – Emma (20 minutes)
AFO Core Strength: Doja Cat 7/3/21 – Robin (20 minutes)
AFO Post-Ride Stretch: Doja Cat 7/3/21 – Hannah C (10 minutes)
AFO Meditation: Alice Coltrane 7/1/21 – Chelsea (5 minutes)
Sunday, July 4
Happy 4th! It was my day 2 of the Peloton music festival
AFO Walk + Run: Gwen Stefani 7/1/21 – Matty (30 minutes)
AFO Full Body Strength: Gwen Stefani 7/1/21 – Jess (45 minutes)
AFO Ride: Gwen Stefani 7/1/21 – Kendall (45 minutes)
AFO Warm Up Ride: Imagine Dragons 7/2/21 – Sam (5 minutes)
AFO Imagine Dragons Ride 7/2/21 – Sam (20 minutes)
AFO Post-Ride Stretch: Imagine Dragons 7/2/21 – Sam (5 minutes)
AFO Slow Flow: James Blake 7/2/21 – Anna (30 minutes)
Another fun day at the music festival! My love for Gwen Stefani and No Doubt goes back 20+ years. I’ve seen her in concert twice – once with No Doubt and once as a solo artist. These classes were as good as I thought they would be – and I even learned a few new things about her. The strength class was non-stop but I was able to get through it by singing along to all of the songs. The Imagine Dragon rides were really good too. Definitely a different vibe/style of music when compared to Gwen Stefani, but that’s the best thing about this festival. You get to sample a bunch of different styles of music.
I also hit my 75th walk – a nice surprise!
Total Weekly Mileage: 12.6 miles
Summary: 6 runs*, 13 cycle, 4 yoga and 16 OTF/strength/HIIT classes.
*I include running from my OTF workouts, boot camp classes and stand alone runs.
Peloton Artist Series Classes Progress – 316/361
Lots of cool stuff going on with Peloton this week! This week they released their “Summer Pass” discount for the Peloton app (Peloton Digital). You can get 3 months for the price of one. If you’ve been on the fence about trying the classes, this is a good time to join. You can read more about it here.
They also dropped classes for their All for One Music Festival. All of these classes were from Jul 1-3 – some live and some on demand. In total the festival featured 25 artists and all of the Peloton instructors taught at least one class. This combines two of my favorite things – exercise and music so I’m looking forward to making my way through all of the classes to jam out with artists that I love and learn about new ones too.
Next week I’m on staycation – yay! I’m looking forward to NOT logging into work because I mentally need a break from it. I hope that the weather will cooperate and that we won’t have another heatwave like we did this past week!
…and now for this week’s memes
That’s it! I hope you had a great week 🙂
