Happy Sunday! Another week down 🙂 Unlike last week, this week felt SUPER long. On the plus side, I completed one huge project at work so I’m happy that’s now off my plate. By the end of next week I should be done with another project. Keeping my fingers crossed things will level out after that!
Another pretty good week of workouts. I’m still finding that balance between cycling, running and strength training.
Here’s how my workouts went this week:
Monday, April 20
Peloton Pride Bootcamp 6/21/18 – Matty (45 minutes)
Treadmill Run (15 minutes)
Lunchtime Walk (40 minutes)
#nevermissamonday! Started off the week with a really fun bootcamp class. The class had 2 treadmill blocks and 2 strength blocks. When I finished I ran for 15 minutes to round out an hour of sweat.
Tuesday, April 21
Peloton Latin Ride 10/4/18 – Hannah (20 minutes)
2 mile run
Deborah’s Jump Rope Workout
I’m going to be 100% honest – I didn’t feel like working out. I had a really bad night’s sleep and I was tired, but I knew I would regret not working out. I didn’t have a game plan when I hit my basement but ultimately settle on a mix of workouts which was just fine.
Also, I totally underestimated the jump rope workout, lol. I was happy to get through 2 rounds and it reminded me that I should probably not go years without using my jump rope.
No lunchtime walk as it started raining about 2 minutes after I left my house so I had to turn around and come back.
Wednesday, April 22
Peloton 2000s Hip Hop Ride 11/13/19 – Alex (45 minutes)
Peloton Chest & Back Strength 2/14/20 – Oliver (15 minutes)
Afternoon Walk (20 minutes)
I finally hit the 200 cycle class milestone! Usually I try to take a live class (live from the bike, not studio) when I know it’s a milestone, but since that’s not an option, I picked this class. I loved the playlist and Alex is one of my favorite instructors. Also I need all of his positive energy when I’m on the bike before 7am. After the ride I did a 15 minute chest and back strength class and it was a killer – talk about feel the burn!
Thursday, April 23
4 mile run
Nothing really to report about this run. My legs were tired so it was a little rough toward the end but I got it done and that’s what counts!
Friday, April 24
Peloton UK Celebration Ride 9/24/19 – Ben (20 minutes)
HIIT Workout (32 minutes) Details Below
Peloton 90s Fun Walk 7/11/19 – Jess (30 minutes)
I knew I wanted to do a HIIT style workout, so I just wrote down a bunch of moves that I like to do and made it into a workout. I’m obviously not a coach so who knows if this was actually effective, but my arms were on fire by the end and I got a really good sweat so I’m calling that a win!
It rained pretty much all day so I did a fun walk on the treadmill after logging off work for the day.
Saturday, April 25
3.1 mile run.
I was originally hoping for around 5 or 6 miles but my body was so sore from Friday’s workout! I was happy with 3.1 miles, and I ran “virtually” with Kim which was fun!
Sunday, April 26
Peloton HIIT Ride: Live From Home 4/24/20 – Alex (30 minutes)
Peloton Cool Down Ride 8/1/19 – Alex (10 minutes)
Peloton Core Strength 4/6/20 – Robin (5 minutes)
Peloton Full Body Strength 3/31/20 – Becs (10 minutes)
Originally I thought about doing a short run and some strength training, but it’s another rainy day here so I opted to do a few Peloton classes. This week, some of the instructors started teaching live from their homes – how cool is that?! Unfortunately the times never work with my schedule on weekdays so I can’t take them live, but I was able to take Alex’s live class from Friday today. He had some technical difficulties while teaching the ride but handled it like a champ and the class was really good! I followed up the class with a cool down ride, core work and a full body strength class.
Total Weekly Mileage: 12.6 miles
Summary: 4 runs*, 5 cycle class and 6 Strength workouts.
*I include running from my OTF workouts and stand alone runs as well.
Grade This Week – A
Except for Saturday, the weather was so crappy this week! So much wind and rain – fingers crossed that this week is better 🙂 Also my sleep was not good at al this week. I know I have a lot of my mind so I’m going to try to focus on relaxing a little bit longer before I climb into bed to go to sleep. Some nights I take 5-10 minute sleep meditation classes before bed and those help sometimes. Other than that, I’m also going to try to limit my screen time before bed too. I’ve gotta figure this out because waking up every hour is really not fun.
This morning I had to go to the supermarket because we literally had no vegetables in the house so I stocked up and I FINALLY found spinach! I was soooooo happy! I would have purchased more but these were their last two packages.
…and because I always like to end my post with a little humor..
It was very frustrating when a certain person gave a press conference later in the week and provided information that literally MADE NO SENSE, but at least some funny memes came out of it.
That’s it! I hope you had a great week 🙂
