Happy Sunday! Another week of #quarantinelife is in the books. This week wasn’t too bad AND I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel at work. This makes me so happy!
Here’s how my workouts went this week:
Monday, May 4
Peloton 80s Fun Walk 4/2/20 – Olivia (20 minutes)
Peloton Club Bangers Ride: Live From Home 5/1/20 – Alex (30 minutes)
Peloton Full Body: Live From Home 4/27/20 – Robin (20 minutes)
Peloton HIIT Cardio 4/10/20 – Jess (10 minutes)
May the 4th be with you! Sorry, I had to do it, lol.
My legs were super sore from the bootcamp class I took the previous day, so I knew that running would not be an option. I decided to warm up by doing a walk on the treadmill and then I took Alex’s Club Bangers ride. The music was amazing as usual! Since I still had time (and energy) to get in another workout before logging in for work, I took a quick strength training class with Robin, and finished with a high-intensity cardio HITT class. It was a good way to start off the day/week. #nevermissamonday

Virtual 5K to Outrun Hunger
Peloton My Mixtape Ride: Live From Home 5/3/20 – Jenn (30 minutes)
I ran a virtual 5K to raise funds for a local charity, Filling in the Blanks. The organization helps fight childhood hunger by providing children in need with meals on the weekends. They have seen an increase in demand since COVID-19 so it was nice to raise money for them. The virtual race raised over $6,000! I took a 30 min cycle class after my run and I didn’t love it. Jenn was great but I just didn’t love the music.
Wednesday, May 6
Peloton Pop Bootcamp 3/28/20 – Jess (60 minutes)
Peloton Core Strength 2/17/20 – Cody (5 minutes)
Nothing like a good bootcamp class to start off the day! The music was great and I loved the variation of bodyweight exercises on the floor.
Thursday, May 7
Peloton Hip Hop Fun Walk 11/21/19 – Chase (20 minutes)
Peloton New Tracks Ride: Live From Home 5/6/20 – Alex (30 minutes)
Peloton Sweat Steady Ride: Live From Home 5/2/20 – Jess (30 minutes)
Peloton Core Strength 2/5/20 – Robin (5 minutes)
A little bit of everything. Sometimes when I’m not sure what type of workout I want to do, I hop on the treadmill for a fun walk before getting started. After my walk was done I decided to do a few cycle classes.
Friday, May 8
#IRUNWITHMAUD 2.23 Dedication Run
OTF at Home Workout – Endurance
This was a very hard run. I ran 2.23 miles in honor of Ahmaud Arbery. By now, I’m sure that you have all heard the story so I won’t repeat it here but it’s just such an awful tragedy and my heart breaks for his family and friends. I hope his murderers are bought to justice quickly.
Saturday, May 9
Peloton Lizzo Ride 8/2/19 – Robin (30 minutes)
Peloton Lizzo Fun Run 9/3/19 – Jess (30 minutes)
Mother Nature decided to throw us a cold front in May. Honestly I wasn’t even surprised because the year has just been so crazy, but waking up to a real feel of 20 degrees made me move my workout indoors.
Peloton is offering up a new badge quest for certain classes. The Lizzo classes counted toward the new quest so I decided to hope on the treadmill and the bike to take them, and both were super fun!
Sunday, May 10
Virtual Red Dress Run 5K
Peloton Full Body Strength: Live From Home 5/9/20 – Jess (30 minutes)
Peloton Full Body Stretch 3/15/20 – Jess (10 minutes)
This morning I did the Virtual Red Dress Run 5K. A portion of the proceeds go to Hartford Interval House to support their mission to end domestic violence. Always nice to run to support a good cause. After the run I did a full body strength class followed up by a stretch class.
Also, Happy Mother’s Day to all the awesome moms out there, especially mine!
Total Weekly Mileage: 14.43 miles
Summary: 5 runs*, 5 cycle class, 3 strength workouts and 1 OTF at Home workout.
*I include running from my OTF workouts, boot camp classes and stand alone runs as well.
Grade This Week – A
Not too much to report this week! I had a chance to catch up with my best friends via a Zoom call on Tuesday night. It was really nice and we spent about 3 hours talking and catching up on everything! We also each had margaritas on while on the call since it was Cinco de Mayo so things got a little crazy toward the end LOL.
Work is starting to even out a bit and I think I’ll be back to working normal hours but the end of this week. I already feel less stressed and it’s such a great feeling.
…and because I always like to end my post with a little humor..
That’s it! I hope you had a great week 🙂
