Happy Super Bowl Sunday! Who do you want to win tonight? I don’t really care who wins tonight, but I’m looking forward to all the food and snacks. I’m also looking forward to the Puppy Bowl – I just think it’s the cutest thing ever!
Another busy week, but that seems to be the theme for my life recently, lol. This was also week #2 of the OTF Transformation Challenge!
Here’s how my workouts went this week:
Monday, January 27
Orangetheory Fitness – Power (60 minutes) + core workouts (5 minutes)
I always love Power workouts, except for the inclines on the treadmill, lol. It was nice to connect with some other members on my team after class (go #greenteam)!
Tuesday, January 28
Power Walk (30 minutes) + core work (10 minutes).
I didn’t feel like running so I opted for a nice power walk instead!
Wednesday, January 29
Orangetheory Fitness – Power/Endurance (60 minutes) + core work (5 minutes).
This was a tough workout. Between the pistol squats, step ups on the bench, regular squats and the treadmill, my legs were TOAST!
Thursday, January 30
Orangetheory Fitness – Strength (60 minutes) + core work (5 minutes).
I hit a PR during class! I’ve been trying to lift heavier the past few weeks and it’s paying off. I was hesitant to try the chest press with the 30lb weights as I normally use 25lb weights but I did it! Hopefully I can increase it more next month.
Friday, January 31
4 mile run + core work (10 minutes).
I went into this run with no plan and told myself I would just stop when I wanted. 4 miles seemed good so I stopped there.
Saturday, February 1
Cycle (30 minutes) + 3 mile run.
Originally I was supposed to do an OTF workout in the morning but I canceled the class before I went to bed on Friday night. I’m glad I did because this brick workout was just what I needed.
Sunday, February 2
Orangetheory Fitness – ESP (60 minutes).
It was hard to keep my heart rate up during this class because we switched a lot – we were only at each station (rower, treadmill, floor) for 3-4 minutes each. I really tried to push myself on the treadmill to ensure that I got my splat points!
Total Weekly Mileage: 15.5 miles
Summary: 6 runs*, 1 cycle class and 4 OTF workouts
*I include running from my OTF workouts and stand alone runs as well.
Grade This Week – A
Overall a good week, although I was hoping to get in 5 OTF workouts – 4 is still good though! Honestly I needed the break on Saturday. I was SO tired all day and could barely keep my eyes open by 8pm. I ended up sleeping over 8 hours Saturday night which is SUPER rare for me. I was still sleepy before I took my OTF class this morning but now I feel back to normal. I think my body just needed a rest.
I ended up closing out the month with 60 miles of running, 60 miles of spinning and 17 OTF classes. I also pulled my OTF stats for January:
If you follow me on Instagram, I apologize for the influx of postings on my IG stories. We have mini 2 week challenges during the transformation challenge and the first one was all about social media. We were competing against the other teams to see which team could post the most on social media, therefore that’s why I had a ton of OTF related posts. The challenge ends today so I’ll be back to my normal postings now, LOL.
That’s it! I hope you had a great week 🙂
