Happy Sunday. This week has felt like my own version of March Madness. I’m not going to lie – my motivation to do anything was super low this week. I definitely hit a wall towards the end of the week but still tried to get in my workouts.
Here’s how my workouts went this week:
Monday, March 8
Peloton Warm Up Run 11/18/20 – Matt (5 minutes)
Peloton Megan Thee Stallion Tread Bootcamp 3/7/21 – Adrian (45 minutes)
Peloton Pop Ride 5/4/19 – Jenn (30 minutes)
Peloton Core Strength 6/27/19 – Jess (10 minutes)
Peloton Hike 11/20/19 – Jess (20 minutes)
I enjoyed starting off my day/week with the Megan Thee Stallion Bootcamp. It was a fun class but still a good workout. Work was 10 hours of craziness. The only thing keeping me going is that I know this busy season will be done at the beginning of April. I knew I would end up working late so I did a quick 20 min hike class right before lunch so I could get in more steps/movement.
Tuesday, March 9
Orangetheory Fitness – Endurance (45 minutes)
Peloton Core Strength 6/4/19 – Jess (20 minutes)
Peloton Crank It Up Ride 5/3/19 – Christine (30 minutes)
Peloton Holiday Yoga Flow 12/20/19 – Ross (30 minutes)
I really wasn’t in the mood to workout. In this case I should have gone with my gut because I didn’t like the OTF workout at all. We mainly focused on TRX moves on the floor which was a little boring. I’ll admit, my head really wasn’t in it which probably resulted in me injuring my leg during one of the moves. For one of the moves we had to hold onto the TRX straps while stepping backwards for a lunge. Well I’m not sure what happened but as I was lunging with my left leg I felt a pull in my quad. I’ve done this a few times over the years so I knew exactly what happened as soon as it happened. I hobbled through the treadmill block and then gave it some TLC once I got home.
Wednesday, March 10
Orangetheory Fitness – Strength (45 minutes)
Peloton Core Strength 1/15/20 – Jess (15 minutes)
My quad was still bothering me, so of course it was a leg heavy day at OTF. I did what I could on the floor and decided to powerwalk the treadmill block. I still got in a great workout, and all my splat points. Decided to skip doing a ride and just focused on a lot of stretching and massaging of my quad.
Thursday, March 11
Peloton Intervals & Arms Ride 5/3/19 – Emma (30 minutes)
Peloton Rock Fun Run 5/5/19 – Selena (30 minutes)
Peloton Core Strength 1/28/20 – Jess (10 minutes)
Peloton Turkey Burn Yoga Flow 11/28/19 – Anna (30 minutes)
My quad felt better so I decided to do a ride and a slow run for my workouts. It doesn’t really bother me while I’m working out but if I sit down at my desk too long without moving it’s very tight.
Friday, March 12
Peloton Club Bangers Ride 5/4/19 – Alex (30 minutes)
Peloton HIIT Run 5/3/19 – Matty (30 minutes)
Peloton Little Mix Bike Bootcamp 3/12/21 – Cody (30 minutes)
Peloton Core Strength 9/24/19 – Jess (20 minutes)
My quad was feeling around 85% better so I tested it out during the run. I didn’t push the pace too hard and it felt pretty good. As I walked around the rest of the day it started to feel back to normal. Jumping on the live bike bootcamp was a last minute decision but I thought riding with Cody would be a good way to start the day. The class was okay, but I’m still not really loving the bike bootcamps. I’m going to try a few more to see if my thoughts change, but so far I much prefer the tread bootcamps.
Saturday, March 13
Orangetheory Fitness – Endurance (45 minutes)
Peloton Fresh Friday Ride 5/3/19 – Denis (30 minutes)
Peloton Core Strength 8/8/19 – Jess (30 minutes)
Peloton Holiday Yoga Flow 12/20/19 – Aditi (30 minutes)
Ugh – another endurance workout at OTF! I’m not a fan of endurance days but the template wasn’t too bad. The workout was a nice prep for next weekend’s Dri Tri.
Sunday, March 14
Peloton Little Mix Ride 3/8/21 – Hannah F (30 minutes)
Peloton Country Fun Run 5/5/19 – Matty (30 minutes)
Peloton WHM: Pop Core Strength 3/10/21 – Olivia (15 minutes)
Peloton Spotify We Everywhere Yoga Flow 2/21/21 – Chelsea (30 minutes)
I’m not sure if it was Daylight Savings Time or just feeling run down from the week but it took me forever to get moving this morning. I didn’t even hop out of bed until almost 9am which is super rare for me. Once I got moving I felt a little better but it was a rough start to the morning. My workouts were fine – nothing special, but it felt good to get my body moving. I’m definitely going to take it easy the rest of today.
Total Weekly Mileage: 10.5 miles
Summary: 6 runs*, 2 bootcamps, 6 cycle, 4 yoga and 10 OTF/strength classes.
*I include running from my OTF workouts, boot camp classes and stand alone runs.
Peloton Artist Series Classes Progress – 229/230
This week was hard. Allergies kicked my butt a few days which made me feel tired, but I had no time to be tired due to everything that is going on at work. My workouts weren’t the best this week due to feeling a little but worn down and then the fluke quad issue. Thankfully my quad is feeling 100% better now so it shouldn’t give me any problems next weekend for the OTF DriTri. This week was also the last week for the OTF Transformation Challenge. To be honest, I really wasn’t into it this year like I was last year. My head just really wasn’t into it at all, but I am looking forward to the DriTri so that’s a positive!
The Peloton treadmill was supposed to be delivered on Friday. The delivery finally arrived around 7pm (5 hours late) and just as the crew was getting ready to assemble it they noticed that the base of the treadmill was cracked and scratched. Obviously that wasn’t acceptable so they took all the items back and I called Peloton to re-schedule the delivery. The new delivery date is in May and they provided us with a $200 credit for the trouble. Hopefully the second delivery will be better. None of this really surprises me as I know that Peloton has had major issues with deliveries. I know they have invested a ton of money to improve this process but it’s still a work in progress.
…and now for this week’s memes 🙂
That’s it! I hope you had a great week 🙂
