Happy Sunday. I was riding the struggle bus HARD early in the week due to Daylight Savings Time. I finally felt back to “normal” around Wednesday afternoon. Because of the OTF DriTri on Saturday, I tried to focus on workouts that would give me a good sweat, but not burn me out completely.
Here’s how my workouts went this week:
Monday, March 15
Orangetheory Fitness – Power (45 minutes)
Peloton Hip Hop Ride 5/3/19 – Jess K. (30 minutes)
Peloton Core Strength 10/10/19 – Jess (20 minutes)
#nevermissamonday! Loved the morning OTF class because it had a mix of everything and lots of sprints and walking recoveries on the treadmill. It was a nice way to ease into the week since Daylight Savings Time zapped a lot of my energy.
Tuesday, March 16
Orangetheory Fitness – ESP (45 minutes)
Peloton Core Strength 3/3/20 – Jess (10 minutes)
Peloton Hike 1/15/20 – Jess (20 minutes)
Peloton Holiday Ride 12/20/19 – Emma (20 minutes)
I liked the OTF workout because I got to use heavy weights during the floor block and we had a run/row block for the endurance portion of the workout. I love run/rows because it allows me to push harder on the treadmill since we run for shorter distances. I enjoyed the random holiday ride class because I was feeling stressed out and wanted to hear some fun holiday music.
Wednesday, March 17
Orangetheory Fitness – Endurance (45 minutes)
Peloton Hike 6/17/20 – Jess (20 minutes)
Peloton Core Strength 12/26/19 – Jess (20 minutes)
Peloton WHM Celebration Yoga Flow 3/2/20 – Kristin (30 minutes)
We had the “Luck of the Draw” workout at OTF for St Patrick’s Day. Everyone had the same exercises on the floor (lots of TRX moves and core). Essentially the luck of the draw related to what distance you had to run on the treadmill or do on the rower. After running a 1 minute all out if you landed on an odd distance you had to run a certain distance on the treadmill. If you landed on an even number you had do to a 1,700 meter row, 17 overhead presses with a medicine ball, 170 meter row – and repeat. I ended up doing the row block. Overall, it was a really fun workout and a good way to start the day.
Thursday, March 18
Peloton Walk + Run 3/7/21 – Jess (30 minutes)
Peloton Power Zone Ride 5/4/19 – Matt (30 minutes)
Peloton Core Strength 9/4/20 – Jess (10 minutes)
The walk + run class was perfect since I wasn’t in the mood to run so I appreciated the run/walk intervals. I haven’t done a power zone ride in a while so it was nice to get back to my zones to see how I felt in each one.
Friday, March 19
Peloton R&B Walk 3/18/21 – Jess (30 minutes)
Peloton Groove Ride 5/4/19 – Cody (30 minutes)
Peloton Core Strength 9/18/20 – Jess (10 minutes)
I absolutely loved the R&B walk with Jess. The playlist was great and it put me in a good mood the rest of the day. The Groove ride with Cody was also fun. I wanted to keep the workouts light since I had the Orangetheory DriTri the following day.
Saturday, March 20
Orangetheory DriTri – Full (Peloton Outdoor Intervals Run 8/15/19 w/ Jess)
Orangetheory DriTri – Sprint (Peloton Outdoor HIIT Run 5/23/19 w/ Jess)
Peloton Ms. Lauryn Hill Yoga Flow 3/20/21 – Anna (30 minutes)
Peloton Core Strength 1/2/20 – Jess (20 minutes)
I had a great time doing the Orangetheory DriTri! I wasn’t too thrilled that it was 28 degrees when I started my first heat at 7am, and I couldn’t feel my fingers during the rowing block, but I quickly warmed up. For some reason I’m always able to fly through the floor exercises so that was the easiest part for me. I usually suffer during the run but I started off slow and then picked up the pace for the last mile and ended up with a PR – that was my ultimate goal so I was thrilled!
I think that using Peloton classes for the runs helped me with my pacing. My mom was doing the DriTri Sprint (the half version of the original DriTri) at 9am and she didn’t want to do it solo so I did the Sprint with her and it went well. I know she was nervous so I was happy that she conquered her fear and got it done. Between the two events I did a 3,000 meter row, 450 body weigh exercise and 4.65 miles. I refueled with pancakes and then hopped on a live Peloton yoga class for my 100th yoga class and did a quick core workout before resting the remainder of the day.
Sunday, March 21
Peloton Intervals & Arms Ride 5/4/19 – Christine (30 minutes)
Peloton Get Lifted Ride 5/5/19 – Ally (30 minutes)
My legs feel pretty sore from yesterday so I just focused on cycling today – no running.
Total Weekly Mileage: 10 miles
Summary: 6 runs*, 6 cycle, 2 yoga and 11 OTF/strength classes.
*I include running from my OTF workouts, boot camp classes and stand alone runs.
Peloton Artist Series Classes Progress – 231/234
I was pleasantly surprised with how good I felt during the DriTri, especially during the run portion since that’s usually where I struggle the most. Hoping I can channel that energy into the DriTri when my studio offers it again in September.
My dad went for his second vaccine shot on Wednesday so that made me super happy. The process was super quick and we were in an out in about 30 minutes. He really didn’t have any side effects except for a dull headache and a sore arm. What I’m not too thrilled about is the fact that Connecticut accelerated their vaccine rollout so instead of offering it by age group, I’m now rolled into the 16 and up crowd. While I understand why they did it, I think it’s going to make it even harder now to get an appointment. I cannot imagine what the online system is going to look like on April 5th…
…and now for this week’s memes 🙂
That’s it! I hope you had a great week 🙂
