Happy Sunday! Wow – I can’t believe that I’ve been working from home and immersed in the “quarantine life” for 10 weeks. When this first started, I didn’t think it would be over in 2 weeks, but I also didn’t think it would be this long either. On Thursday my job announced that we have the option to continue working from home until October so I’m glad I’ve established a routine for myself. On Wednesday my state started phase 1 of re-opening. So far it looks like people are using common sense (for the most part) so I hope that continues.
Here’s how my workouts went this week:
Monday, May 18
Peloton Club Bangers Ride: Live From Home 5/15/20 – Alex (30 minutes)
Peloton Bodyweight: Live From Home 5/17/20 – Jess (30 minutes)
3.1 Mile Afternoon Walk
I’m a huge fan of the Club Bangers rides because the music is always SO good and this class didn’t disappoint! The bodyweight strength workout was really tough. There was a 10 minute EMOM (every minute on the minute) at the end of the workout that basically left me in a puddle of sweat on the floor, lol.
Tuesday, May 19
Peloton Outdoor Walk + Run 10/10/19 – Jess (30 minutes)
Peloton Arms & Shoulders Strength 5/19/20 – Adrian (10 minutes)
2.35 mile walk
For this workout I ended up walking to the park, then completing a Peloton Outdoor Run workout, then walked back home from the park. I think this was my first outdoor run with Peloton and it was pretty cool to be guided through the run (I just ran a little slower during the walk sections). When I got home, I took a quick 10 minute arms & shoulders workout with the newest Peloton instructor, Adiran Williams. I really liked his energy and humor so I look forward to taking more classes with him in the future!
Wednesday, May 20
Peloton Hip Hop Bootcamp 8/10/19 – Jess (60 minutes)
Absolutely loved this bootcamp! It was a little different as it had four 15 minute sections, as opposed to six 10 minute sections. I liked the longer sections, especially on the floor because Jess focused on upper body and core for the first floor section and then lower body for the second floor section.
I was having an issue with my ankle for most of the week and it felt really sore after this class so I decided to skip my afternoon walk and take it easy the rest of the day.
Thursday, May 21
Peloton Y2K Ride 1/2/18 – Alex (45 minutes)
Peloton AHM Full Body: Live From Home 5/14/20 – Jess (20 minutes)
1.81 mile afternoon walk
Even though I iced my ankle the night before, it was hurting when I woke up so I decided to change my workout from a run to a cycle and strength day. Both workouts were great, although my ankle did hurt when I added a lot of resistance on the bike so I scaled it back a bit.
Friday, May 22
Peloton Hip Hop Cycle 9/30/19 – Alex (45 minutes)
Peloton HIIT Cardio 3/27/20 – Jess (20 minutes)
1.95 mile afternoon walk
Decided to take another day off running since my ankle was a little swollen when I woke up. I really love the music in the cycle class and the HIIT cardio was a nice switch up from taking a strength training class.
Saturday, May 23
It was cloudy and super humid when I woke up so I decided to move my “longish” run to Sunday. I had the brilliant idea to do an advanced boot camp class. Y’all..I don’t know what I was thinking! My arms are still sore today. I should probably just stick to the intermediate classes from now on!
Sunday, May 24
It was a good day for a run! The weather was much cooler and I was up pretty early so I was able to avoid a lot of people on the sidewalks. I listened to two outdoor Peloton runs to help pass the time and got in a 10K for the Un-Canceled Project. My ankle was a little tender by the end of the run but not too bad.
Total Weekly Mileage: 15 miles
Summary: 4 runs*, 3 cycle class, 3 strength workouts and 2 bootcamp classes.
*I include running from my OTF workouts, boot camp classes and stand alone runs as well.
Grade This Week – A
I took Monday and Tuesday off from work and it was very much needed. On Monday I binge watched The Morning Show – it was SO good! I rarely spend an entire day watching a show but I was hooked and I can’t wait for season 2. On Tuesday I went grocery shopping and finished up some tasks around the house. Best of all, I didn’t check my work email once – I truly disconnected and it was exactly what I needed.
Once again, my sleep has turned to crap. This time I have the proof from my Apple watch..
I had 3 nights like this during the week. It’s so strange because one night I’ll get little to no sleep and the next night I’ll get a decent amount (around 5-6 hours). There’s no rhyme or reason to it which makes it even more annoying. Hopefully this week will be better.
Earlier in the post I mentioned that my state has re-opened as of Wednesday. I’ll admit to looking online to see photos of the outdoor dining from around the state because I wanted to see is restaurants were following the rules. For the most part they were, but of course they can’t control what their patrons do. Then I saw this photo and was instantly annoyed.
What part of “do not socialize with people who you don’t live with” is so hard to understand?! I’m pretty sure these co-workers don’t live in the same household. I’m just so incredibly annoyed at people not adhering to the rules to keep themselves, and others, safe. I’m sure I’ll continue this rant in my Runfessions post on Friday. Sorry but it just really fires me up!
…and because I always like to end my post with a little humor..
That’s it! I hope you had a great week 🙂
