Happy Sunday! Does anyone feel like this month should be over already? Between the rise in Covid cases and all of the celebrity deaths, this month has felt pretty heavy. I hope that last week of the month will be uneventful – I’m kind of over the “unprecedented times”.
Here’s a recap of my week in workouts:
Monday, January 17
Pre-Run Warm Up 7/3/19 – Matty (5 minutes)
Advanced Intervals Run 5/20/19 – Jess (45 minutes)
Top 50 of 2021 Ride: #20-11 12/29/21 – Emma (30 minutes)
Top 50 of 2021 Ride: #10-1 12/30/21 – Kendall (30 minutes)
Post-Run Stretch 12/6/21 – Tobias (10 minutes)
I was able do a few low impact workouts on Sunday after my back loosened up a bit. When I woke up on Monday, my back felt a lot better so I was able to run and decided to dig into the archives and take an intervals class with Jess from 2019. I also finished up the Top 50 of 2021 classes.
Tuesday, January 18
Warm Up Walk 7/19/21 – Becs (10 minutes)
Amy Winehouse Run 1/12/22 – Becs (30 minutes)
Amy Winehouse Full Body Strength 1/12/22 – Matty (20 minutes)
Amy Winehouse Ride 1/12/22 – Hannah F (30 minutes)
Fit Family Strong HIIT Cardio 12/14/20 – Jess (20 minutes)
Amy Winehouse Yoga Flow 1/12/22 – Aditi (30 minutes)
I always enjoyed Amy Winehouse’s music and thought she was super talented, so I was happy when Peloton announced her artist series classes. I thought that all of the classes were good – the instructors did a great job at balancing the music and their talking.
Wednesday, January 19
Warm Up Run 9/15/21 – Jermaine (10 minutes)
BHM: Live DJ Run 2/26/21 – Adrian (30 minutes)
Advanced Chest & Back Strength 8/29/19 – Jess (20 minutes)
Bodyweight Strength 7/7/20 – Jess (10 minutes)
Amy Winehouse Ride 1/12/22 – Mayla (30 minutes)
BHM: Broadway Ride 2/7/21 – Ally (20 minutes)
I always enjoy the Live DJ runs because Adrian and DJ John Michael have great banter and it makes the class go by quickly. I don’t know which class was worse – the advanced chest & back strength or the bodyweight strength class. The chest and back class felt hard because of my weight selection but the bodyweight class was non-stop and packed a lot of movement into 10 minutes.
Thursday, January 20
Power Walk 1/4/22 – Jess (20 minutes)
David Bowie Walk + Run 1/19/22 – Susie (30 minutes)
David Bowie Upper Body Strength 1/19/22 – Ben (20 minutes)
David Bowie Ride 1/19/22 – Jess K (30 minutes)
David Bowie Yoga Flow 1/19/22 – Denis (30 minutes)
It felt good to start off the morning with a nice power walk. Unfortunately I didn’t really care for the walk + run class. Usually it’s a 1:1 or 2:1 run/walk ratio in those classes but she didn’t follow that structure so the class had a little too much walking for me. I ended up doing my own intervals during the class. Thankfully the playlist was great! That class ended up being my 150th walk. I didn’t take the class live, so no shoutout, but it was nice to check off another Peloton milestone early in the year. Absolutely loved Ben’s upper body strength class – great circuits and it wasn’t too repetitive. I also surprisingly enjoyed the ride as well.
Friday, January 21
David Bowie Ride 1/19/22 – Cliff (20 minutes)
David Bowie Low Impact Ride 1/19/22 – Leanne (10 minutes)
Glutes & Legs Strength 9/16/19 – Jess (30 minutes)
Warm Up Run 2/23/21 – Selena (5 minutes)
David Bowie Run 1/19/22 – Selena (30 minutes)
David Bowie Yoga Flow 1/19/22 – Nico (20 minutes)
I had a rough night of sleep so I needed to sleep in a little bit in order to function for work. I split up my workout and did the cycle and strength classes in before work and the run and yoga after work. I dug into the archives for the glutes & legs class and I’m glad I did because it was really good! Lots of unilateral exercises which I loved.
Saturday, January 22
Pop Ride 1/11/22 – Cody (30 minutes)
Bootcamp Warm Up 10/6/21 – Adrian (10 minutes)
Saturday60: 2010s Bootcamp 1/22/22 – Jess (60 minutes)
David Bowie Full Body Stretch 1/19/22 – Ben (10 minutes)
Cody dubbed this ride “The Hoe Anthem” ride because of the playlist. I’ll admit, I probably did more laughing and dancing than riding, but it was just such a fun ride. Followed that up with the best part of Saturday – Jess’s tread bootcamp. Also, another great full body stretch with Ben. I really enjoy all of his stretching classes.
Sunday, January 23
Warm Up Ride 1/20/22 – Cliff (5 minutes)
BHM Celebration Ride 2/15/21 – Alex (30 minutes)
BHM: 90s Ride 2/18/21 – Emma (30 minutes)
BHM: Fresh Friday Ride 2/19/21 – Denis (30 minutes)
BHM: House Ride 2/20/21 – Jess K (30 minutes)
BHM Celebration Ride 2/23/21 – Cody (30 minutes)
Post-Ride Stretch 11/16/19 – Hannah C (10 minutes)
I completed my first PeloFondo! This wasn’t exactly planned as I just found out about it a few days ago. I knew what it was, but was always a little intimidated by it. PeloFondo is a long distance riding event and you can choose a distance between 35-120 miles. You have two days to complete your distance. I opted for the 35 mile distance today. Cycling isn’t my strength, so I was proud of myself for getting out of my comfort zone and doing this. I’ll have a recap posted on Tuesday.
Running – 17.1 miles
Cycle – 83.07 miles
Strength Training – 100 minutes
Bootcamp – 60 minutes
Peloton Artist Series Classes – 501/502
Peloton has released some great Artist Series classes so far this month – Amy Winehouse and David Bowie. I can’t wait to see the next series they release!
Can someone fill me in on Wordle? I keep seeing posts about it all over my social media, but I’m a little confused since all the posts just show colored boxes. Is this a new game I should start? I’m hesitant to get sucked into something else on social media, lol.
…and now for this week’s memes
That’s it! I hope you had a great week 🙂
