Happy Sunday. I hope that everyone had a great week. The summer heat came to visit us this weekend so you know I’m not a happy camper, lol.
Here’s a rundown of my workouts from this week:
Monday, May 17
Peloton Bootcamp Warm Up 2/26/21 – Rebecca (10 minutes)
Peloton 90s Bootcamp 5/2/21 – Rebecca (30 minutes)
Peloton Trap Bootcamp 4/24/19 – Jess (30 minutes)
Peloton APIHM Celebration Ride 5/3/21 – Sam (30 minutes)
Peloton Restorative Yoga 4/20/21 – Ross (10 minutes)
Absolutely enjoyed all of these classes! Both bootcamps had really good playlists and the strength sections were great – simple, yet super effective moves. I also found 2 new songs to download thanks to the APIHM ride. I love when classes can introduce me to new music that i like. I think the restorative yoga may have been better to do right before bed vs after my workout because it made me a little sleepy, lol.
Tuesday, May 18
Peloton Intervals Run 8/26/19 – Jess (30 minutes)
Peloton APIHM Celebration Full Body Strength 5/10/21 – Selena (20 minutes)
Peloton APIHM Classical Ride 5/12/21 – Christine (20 minutes)
Peloton APIHM: Classical Cool Down Ride 5/13/21 – Emma (10 minutes)
Peloton Restorative Yoga 4/20/21 – Denis (10 minutes)
The intervals run was just what I needed since my back has felt a little wonky lately and I loved the mix of running and walking. The strength class was great because it truly offered a full body workout with equal time given to working the upper and lower body.
Wednesday, May 19
Peloton APIHM Icons Walk 5/11/21 – Jess (30 minutes)
Peloton Full Body Strength 10/23/19 – Jess (15 minutes)
Peloton APIHM Celebration Ride 5/11/21 – Leanne (20 minutes)
Peloton APIHM K-Pop Ride 5/16/21 – Ally (20 minutes)
Peloton APIHM Bollywood Ride 5/16/21 – Ally (20 minutes)
During the Icons walk, Jess focused on the story of Malala Yousafzai, a Pakistani activist for female education and the youngest Nobel Prize winner. I knew a little about her background but learned much more about her during the walk. It was truly inspiring.
Thursday, May 20
Peloton 90s Fun Run 6/17/19 – Jess (45 minutes)
Peloton APIHM Celebration Ride 5/3/21 – Emma (30 minutes)
Peloton APIHM Bollywood Ride 5/17/21 – Sam (30 minutes)
Peloton APIHM Celebration Yoga Flow 5/10/21 – Chelsea (30 minutes)
Loved the playlist for the 90’s fun run. It was a great start to my morning. Sam’s Bollywood ride was super fun! The music was great and he also provided some dance moves. I really like his personality and vibe.
Friday, May 21
Peloton Verzuz Run 5/19/21 – Matty (30 minutes)
Peloton Verzuz Ride 5/19/21 – Kendall (30 minutes)
Peloton Core Strength 3/25/21 – Jess (10 minutes)
Peloton HIIT Cardio Warm Up 5/3/21 – Jess (5 minutes)
APIHM Celebration HIIT Cardio 5/20/21 – Adrian (30 minutes)
The Verzuz classes were…okay. Absolutely nothing against Kendall and Matty, but music from Alicia Keys and John Legend is more in the R&B realm and it just didn’t get me pumped up or motivated to workout. On the other hand, I really enjoyed Adrian’s HIIT cardio class. His HIIT cardio classes seem more like strength classes to me so that’s probably why I like them, lol.
Saturday, May 22
Peloton Remix Run 12/29/20 – Matty (20 minutes)
Peloton APIHM Celebration Run 5/7/21 – Selena (20 minutes)
Peloton HIIT Run 7/4/19 – Jess (20 minutes)
Peloton Post-Run Stretch 4/15/21 – Jess (10 minutes)
Peloton Bodyweight Strength 5/21/19 – Jess (20 minutes)
Peloton Core Strength 5/2/21 – Irene (10 minutes)
I was glad that I was able to get outside before it got too hot. I think we hit 86 degrees before noon but luckily it wasn’t too humid. Originally I was going to go out for 40 minutes but decided to add on another 20 minute run since I felt fine. Followed up my run with a stretch (that felt awesome!) and two strength classes. The bodyweight strength class was very good. Jess picked moves that made for a solid workout, but also got your heart rate up as well.
Sunday, May 23
Peloton Melbourne at Night Run (10 minutes)
Peloton Full Body Strength Warm Up 2/3/21 – Jess (10 minutes)
Peloton Verzuz Full Body Strength 5/20/21 – Jess (45 minutes)
Peloton Bring the Heat HIIT Cardio 11/27/20 – Adrian (20 minutes)
Peloton Raveena Slow Flow 5/20/21 – Aditi (30 minutes)
I am still loving the scenic runs! I made it a power walk instead of a run but it was still fun and I now want to visit Melbourne. I’ve always wanted to visit Sydney but now I’ve added Melbourne on my list. The combo of the 45 minute strength class and 20 minute HIIT cardio class was ROUGH! This was my first time taking a 45 minute strength class and it was good, but hard, especially the last 15 minutes. Adrian’s HIIT cardio class was spicy from start to finish. My legs are toast! I welcome the yoga class I will take later on today.
Total Weekly Mileage: 16 miles
Summary: 8 runs*, 2 bootcamps, 9 cycle, 4 yoga and 8 strength/HIIT classes.
*I include running from my OTF workouts, boot camp classes and stand alone runs.
Peloton Artist Series Classes Progress – 271/272
The heat is on this weekend – literally! We went from semi-Spring to Summer weather overnight. I can do without the 90 degree temps in May. I really hope this doesn’t mean we’re in for a super hot Summer 🙁
On Saturday I was able to run a lot of errands, including finally getting over to a car wash to get all the pollen off my car, and do a bunch of stuff around the house. We had our Peloton treadmill checked out last weekend just to make sure that everything was okay. Mainly we wanted to make sure that the belt was working fine and that the noise level was normal (which it was) so we decided to keep the treadmill. Also we don’t have kids or pets so the safety risks are minimal. Peloton also introduced a software update for the treadmill so that it now requires you to enter a 4 digit passcode before the treadmill can be used. I think this is a really good added safety feature which will hopefully lead to less accidents.
…and now for this week’s memes
That’s it! I hope you had a great week 🙂
