Happy Sunday! I hope that everyone had a good week. While this week felt long, it didn’t feel as super stressful as last week so I’m thankful for that! It was nice to have a week that felt normal for once!
Here’s how my workouts went this week:
Monday, November 9
Peloton Hike 9/11/20 – Jess (30 minutes)
Peloton Bon Jovi Ride 11/1/20 – Kendall (45 minutes)
Peloton 2000’s Ride 7/16/20 – Tunde (15 minutes)
Never miss a Monday! I woke up with an achy foot so I decided that a day off from running was necessary. I still wanted to get in my steps for the day so I opted for a hike class and then spent an hour on the bike.
Tuesday, November 10
Peloton Advanced Full Body Bootcamp 10/24/20 – Jess (60 minutes)
Jess never disappoints with her bootcamps, especially the advanced once. They always push me to my limit, which I love. This class really focused on Turkish getups which are hard to master but I love the challenge.
Wednesday, November 11
Orangetheory Fitness – Power (45 minutes)
Peloton Beyonce Two For One Ride 11/9/20 – Alex & Tunde (30 minutes)
Peloton Beyonce Meditation 11/11/20 – Chelsea (10 minutes)
The OTF class had a very different type of format, but it was still a good power day workout. I also really enjoyed the Beyonce Two For One ride once I got back from class. The energy from both instructors was awesome! I did the meditation class to help me wind down before bed.
Thursday, November 12
Orangetheory Fitness – ESP (45 minutes)
Peloton Emeli Sande Ride 10/27/20 – Hannah F (30 minutes)
I came very close to bailing on this class because I was pretty sleepy but I’m happy that I ended up going. I always like the ESP workouts because you get a little bit of everything. The Emeli Sandeeps ride was just okay – the music was kind of blah.
Friday, November 13
Peloton Advanced Arms & Shoulders Bootcamp 1/18/20 – Jess (60 minutes)
Grateful Dead Yoga Flow 11/4/20 – Denis (30 minutes)
My arms were certainly feeling the burn after this bootcamp class! I did the yoga class later on in the evening since my body felt a little tight and achy.
Saturday, November 14
Peloton Beyonce Ride 11/13/20 – Ally (30 minutes)
Peloton Beyonce Run 11/12/20 – Robin (20 minutes)
Peloton Beyonce Full Body Strength 11/12/20 – Robin (20 minutes)
I loved all of these Beyonce themed classes. All of the instructors really bought something different to each class and of course the music was amazing.
I volunteered at a no-contact food drive later that morning. All volunteers wore masks and gloves and we kept our distance as much as possible. People were able to drive up, pop their trunk and then we removed the donations from their cars. It was safe and very well organized. We also split up the donations into different categories (household items, canned goods, breakfast items, etc) so that it would be easy to box up the items. We wanted everything to be boxed up so that the food pantry could just load the boxes into their van once the food drive was over. The holiday season is going to be rough for so many people this year so it felt good to be able to help out in this way.
Sunday, November 15
Orangetheory Fitness – Power (45 minutes)
Peloton Beyonce Yoga Flow 11/11/20 – Chelsea (30 minutes)
Today’s power workout was really good – sprint intervals on the treadmill and heavier weights during the floor block. Followed that up with a Beyonce themed yoga class after I ate brunch. It was hands down my favorite yoga class ever.
Total Weekly Mileage: 11.7 miles
Summary: 6 runs*, 2 bootcamps, 5 cycle 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 – 168/173
Grade This Week – A
As I mentioned earlier, it felt nice to have a normal week with our any crazy work surprises. The world is still crazy, but I’ll take my small slice of normalcy 🙂
If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen a poll that I ran earlier in the week. I am looking to upgrade my turkey costume for my Thanksgiving Day workouts but couldn’t choose between the two. Option B was the clear winner so I ordered that costume on Friday to make sure it arrives before Thanksgiving. It will be interesting doing an OTF class while wearing it, haha.
…and now for this week’s memes 🙂 Thanks so Wendy for sending me some memes this week!
That’s it! I hope you had a great week 🙂
