Happy Sunday! What a crazy week – I’m glad that it’s over. Did you have a good weekend? The weather here was gorgeous this weekend so that was much appreciated after a week of rain and cloudy weather.
Here’s how my workouts went this week:
Monday, April 27
Peloton Hip Hop Bootcamp 3/21/20 – Jess (60 minutes)
What a great class and a good way to start off the week! There were 3 treadmill and 3 floor sections. I like the fact that I was still able to get in around 3 miles of running during the class. The strength portion was all bodyweight exercises and we all know how fun those can be, lol.
Tuesday, April 28
Peloton Pop Ride 4/26/20 – Cody (30 minutes)
Peloton Upper Body Strength 3/2/20 – Robin (30 minutes)
Peloton Pop Fun Walk 3/6/20 – Oliver (20 minutes)
It’s always a good time with Cody on the bike 🙂 The class was like one big dance party and it was a good way to start the day. That upper body strength workout was tough! My arms and shoulders were sore for a few days.
I was having some issues with my blog so I wasn’t able to get up my post for Tuesday Topics. I just didn’t have time to do trouble shooting in the morning but it seemed to be working fine after work – thank goodness.
Wednesday, April 29
Peloton BHM Soca Bootcamp 2/24/20 – Chase (45 minutes)
Peloton 90s Fun Run 2/20/20 – Jess (20 minutes)
My friends kept telling me that I needed to take this Soca bootcamp and it did not disappoint! The music was amazing (songs from is Islands) and Chase really made the class fun. I followed up the class with a short fun run and I ended up with 4 miles between both classes.
Thursday, April 30
4.2 mile run.
The last day of April! I ended the month with this run to get my monthly mileage to an even 60 miles. I also finally finished that darn burpee challenge!
Friday, May 1
Peloton HIIT Ride: Live From Home 4/29/20 – Robin (30 minutes)
OTF at Home Workout – Upper Body + HIIT
So..these workouts left me tired for the rest of the day, lol. The HIIT cycle class was a killer – so many intervals and my legs were toast. Then instead of doing a Peloton strength workout I joined one of my OTF coaches on Instagram Live since she was doing the OTF at Home workout there. I much prefer to do these workouts when they are led by a coach, and because she did the class at 7am, I was able to get it done before logging in for work.
On Friday afternoon I also signed up for the Zooma Run Club (thanks for posting about this Marcia)! I joined the Facebook group as well and all the women seem great. This will be great motivation for sure.
Saturday, May 2
5.5 mile walk.
To be honest, I really want to sleep for at least another hour but I knew I had to get out early to avoid being around a ton of people. Started out as a run for a few minutes, but then I just really wasn’t feeling it and decided to walk. I haven’t done a super long walk in about 2 years so this was long overdue and I really, really enjoyed it!
Sunday, May 3
Peloton Two for One: BHM Bootcamp 2/29/20 – Jess and Chase (60 minutes).
What a fun way to get in an early morning sweat! Such a great class and the music was super enjoyable – it was East Coast vs. West Coast rap. Jess led the treadmill portion and Chase led the strength training portion. Although it was fun, it was also hard and I was sweating like crazy by the end!
Total Weekly Mileage: 14.2 miles
Summary: 4 runs*, 2 cycle class, 5 strength workouts and 1 OTF at Home workout.
*I include running from my OTF workouts and stand alone runs as well.
Grade This Week – B+
Overall a good week! I had some intense workouts this week but probably should have done more solo runs. I do usually get 2-3 miles of running in each boot camp class which is great, but I should do some longer runs (4+ miles). Originally I was felt guilty for swapping my run for a walk on Saturday but that line of thinking only lasted a few minutes. I sincerely enjoyed my long walk – I was outside for almost 2 hours! It wrecked havoc on my allergies for the rest of the day, but it was worth it.
On Thursday my parents celebrated their 49th wedding anniversary! Another quarantine celebration but they made the best of it.
As usual, I worked longer hours this week. When I found myself still at my laptop at 6:00 pm on Friday, I decided to treat myself to a drink and the Twerk station on Pandora – please don’t judge me, lol.
In COVID-19 related mews, my company extended our work from home order until May 31 so I’ll be working from home for the next few weeks. I’m actually okay with that because I have a lot of anxiety about going back to the office. In Connecticut the plan is to start re-opening businesses starting on May 20. Again, I’m nervous about this because I live in Stamford which is the epicenter for the virus in Connecticut. We have over 2,100 cases, but less than 200 deaths. Yes, the death rate is low when compared to other cities, but it still makes me very uneasy. I don’t know – I guess I just have to wait and see but I won’t be going anywhere but the supermarket this month – I don’t care if places are re-opening.
…and because I always like to end my post with a little humor..
That’s it! I hope you had a great week 🙂
