Happy Sunday! I hope that everyone has a great week. This was a rough week for me. Overall I just felt really tired and overwhelmed with everything. I felt tired physically and mentally. It could be work, or all the craziness in the world, or my body needs a rest – I’m not really sure, maybe it’s a combination of all three? Luckily I was still able to get in my all of my workouts.
Here’s how my workouts went this week:
Monday, September 14
Orangetheory Fitness – Strength (45 minutes)
Peloton XOXO, Cody Ride 9/10/20 – Cody (30 minutes)
I haven’t done an afternoon OTF workout in a while so I was kind of dreading the workout all day but it was actually pretty good! The XOXO ride with Cody was one of the funniest things I’ve ever experienced. I laughed for a majority of the time during the ride – he absolutely cracks me up and it’s just what I needed on a Monday.
Tuesday, September 15
Peloton Power Zone Ride 1/9/20 – Denis (45 minutes)
Peloton Wyclef Jean Run 9/12/20 – Chase (30 minutes)
This was a harder power zone class because of the longer intervals – there were 2 10 minute intervals (!) and some shorter intervals. It was hard to do a run after the cycle class because my legs felt like jelly, but I ran at a slower pace to get it done. I hope that this type of training will pay off for the OTF Dri Tri next weekend.
Wednesday, September 16
Orangetheory Fitness – ESP (45 minutes)
Peloton Power Zone Endurance 1/27/20 – Olivia (30 minutes)
I was super tired which made getting up for the OTF class hard. In fact, I was still yawning as I was walking into the studio, but the workout quickly woke me up! Lots of sprints on the treadmill, fast to moderate rowing blocks, pulsing squats, jumping jacks, etc – it was hard, but gave me the boost I needed to get through the rest of the day.
Thursday, September 17
Peloton J. Balvin Run 9/15/20 – Robin (30 minutes)
Peloton J. Blavin Full Body Strength 9/16/20 – Rebecca (30 minutes)
Peloton J. Balvin Ride 9/16/20 – Jess K. (30 minutes)
J. Balvin is a Hispanic Reggaeton artist. I only know a handful of his songs but thankfully I was introduced to SO many more of his songs through all of these classes. I didn’t really care for the strength and cycle classes but I still got in a good workout!
Friday, September 18
Peloton Power Walk 5/22/19 – Jess (20 minutes)
Peloton Bike Bootcamp: Bodyweight 9/15/20 – Jess (30 minutes)
Peloton Power Zone Ride 1/20/20 – Christine (30 minutes)
When my alarm went off I had no desire to get up and workout so I decided to sleep in. Luckily I didn’t have many meetings so I was able to get in a workout during lunch. I tried my first bike bootcamp class and it was pretty cool. I still prefer the regular bootcamp classes but I like these because they are something different, and it’s so nice to see Jess on the bike!
Saturday, September 19
Peloton Power Zone Endurance Ride 2/8/20 – Matt (60 minutes)
Peloton 90’s Bootcamp 9/19/20 – Jess (60 minutes)
On Saturdays I usually do my longest workouts as a replacement for what would normally be my long run day. This combo was spicy! The PZ Endurance ride wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be because a majority of the ride took place in lower zones, but I was still a sweaty mess when I finished. I had about 45 minutes in-between classes so I hydrated and stretched before taking the #Saturday60 bootcamp. You know how much I love the 90s so I used the awesome playlist to push me through another #deathbyJess class.
Sunday, September 20
Orangetheory Fitness – Strength (45 minutes)
This was a hard, but really great class. No walking recoveries on the treadmill which started to feel like torture towards the end but it was good prep for the Dri Tri on Saturday. I was going to do a 30 minute bootcamp once I got back home but I felt like the class was more than a good enough workout!
Total Weekly Mileage: 13.4 miles
Summary: 7 runs*, 6 cycle, 2 bootcamp, and 4 OTF/strength/HITT classes.
*I include running from my OTF workouts, boot camp classes and stand alone runs.
Peloton Artist Series Classes Progress – 138/139
Grade This Week – A
Another hard and very sad loss this week with the passing of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the Notorious RBG. What an amazing, intelligent and remarkable woman. My words won’t do her justice – I was so upset when the news broke on Friday night. The hits just keep coming this year and it doesn’t seem like they are going to stop any time soon. I’m just over all the sadness and craziness.
In other news, I decided to decorate my WFH station so that it looked a little more like Fall. That area looked a little ‘blah’ so I wanted to spruce it up a little bit. Hoping this may help break me out of whatever funk I’m currently dealing with..
…and now for this week’s memes 🙂
That’s it! I hope you had a great week 🙂
