Happy Sunday! I hope that everyone had a great week. Although busy, I enjoyed my staycation and week off work.
Here’s how my workouts went this week.
Monday, July 5
AFO Run: Nas 7/3/21 – Jess (20 minutes)
AFO Cool Down Run: Nas 7/3/21 – Chase (10 minutes)
AFO Warm Up Ride: Nas 7/3/21 – Alex (10 minutes)
AFO Ride: Nas 7/3/21 – Olivia (15 minutes)
AFO Ride: Demi Lovato 7/2/21 – Kendall (15 minutes)
AFO Arms: Demi Lovato 7/2/21 – Kendall (10 minutes)
AFO Bodyweight Strength: Demi Lovato 7/2/21 – Callie (20 minutes)
Lower Body Stretch 6/28/21 – Robin (10 minutes)
I’m still working my way through the All For One Peloton classes this week. I didn’t see any live rides on the schedule that I wanted to do, so I did Olivia’s Nas ride as my 600th cycle class. I lost count of all the high fives I got from other Peloton members while on the ride – it was really nice and the class was good too. Overall I enjoyed most of the Nas and Demi Lovato classes except the bodyweight strength class. I felt there was too much downtime inbetween sets, especially for a 20 minute class.
Tuesday, July 6
Orangetheory Fitness – ESP (60 minutes)
AFO Walk + Run: Black Coffee 7/3/21 – Jess K. (20 minutes)
AFO Ride: Black Coffee 7/3/21 – Tunde (20 minutes)
AFO Yoga Flow: Black Coffee 7/3/21 – Mariana (20 minutes)
Besides the brutal treadmill block, I enjoyed another ESP Orangetheory workout. The floor block allowed for lifting heavy so that’s just what I did. Paired my OTF workout with a few more AFO Peloton classes. I had never heard of Black Coffee before doing these classes and I’m now a fan! Based on the name, I thought it was a group but Black Coffee is actually a DJ and singer.
Wednesday, July 7
Zion National Park Scenic Walk (30 minutes)
AFO Ride: Sturgill Simpson 7/1/21 – Denis (15 minutes)
AFO Ride: The Tragically Hip 7/1/21 – Emma (15 minutes)
Go Canada! Ride 7/1/21 – Leanne (30 minutes)
Flash 15 1/15/21 – Jess (15 minutes)
Hips Stretch 10/31/18 – Selena (5 minutes)
I did a little bit of everything today. I like to do the scenic runs (as walks) as it makes me feel like I’m on vacation, lol. I did not enjoy the Sturgill Simpson ride as it’s just not the type of music I enjoy, but the other rides weren’t too bad. You can never go wrong with a Flat 15 with Jess if you want a quick and effective strength workout!
Thursday, July 8
Orangetheory Fitness – Strength/Power (45 minutes)
AFO Run: Thomas Rhett 7/2/21 – Matt (20 minutes)
AFO Ride: Thomas Rhett 7/2/21 – Hannah C. (20 minutes)
AFO Ride: Carly Pearce 7/2/21 – Matt (15 minutes)
Core Strength 5/5/21 – Olivia (5 minutes)
AFO Full Body Stretch: Thomas Rhett 7/2/21 – Matt (10 minutes)
AFO Yoga Flow: Carly Pearce 7/2/21 – Ross (20 minutes)
The OTF class was a little odd because it was a strength/power day (they normally don’t combine types of workouts). Also it was a full class and I just felt like I didn’t have enough room to do what I needed to do on the floor. I’ll admit that I didn’t hate the Thomas Rhett classes. I’m not a country music fan but I enjoyed most of the songs that Hannah and Matt played for their classes.
Friday, July 9
AFO Ride: Major Lazer 7/2/21 – Hannah F. (30 minutes)
AFO Run: Major Lazer 7/2/21 – Jess K. (30 minutes)
AFO Core Strength: Major Lazer 7/2/21 – Olivia (30 minutes)
AFO Yoga Flow: Major Lazer 7/2/21 – Aditi (30 minutes)
Originally I was supposed to go to OTF in the morning but Tropical Storm Elsa had other plans. It was raining very hard and there was lots of flooding around the city. The news actually advised people to stay home if possible until the rain stopped around noon. It was so weird because the morning weather was really bad and then the sun was shining bright around noon – Mother Nature is weird.
Luckily I was able to book an OTF class for Sunday so I just swapped workouts and did Sunday’s workout which consisted of the Peloton Major Lazer classes which I really enjoyed! I will admit that I was a little worried about the 30 minute core class, especially with Olivia, but it honestly wasn’t that bad!
Saturday, July 10
AFO Ride: Robin Schulz 7/3/21 – Erik (30 minutes)
Core Strength 5/2/21 – Emma (20 minutes)
90s Bootcamp 7/10/21 – Jess (60 minutes)
AFO Full Body Stretch: Rosalia 7/2/21 – Erik (10 minutes)
AFO Yoga Flow: Alice Coltrane 7/1/21 – Chelsea (30 minutes)
I wasn’t familiar with Robin Schulz before taking the cycle class but I enjoyed the music. It kind of had a dance music vibe. I always enjoy Emma’s core classes because they focus on basic core moves that always have my abs on fire. The playlist for the 90s bootcamp was so good! I was too busy singing along to notice my sweat pile on the floor, lol.
Sunday, July 11
Orangetheory Fitness – Endurance (45 minutes)
AFO Ride: Rosalia 7/2/21 – Cody (20 minutes)
AFO Ride: Tina Turner 7/3/21 – Ally (20 minutes)
AFO Cool Down Ride: Tina Turner 7/3/21 – Ally (5 minutes)
AFO Arms: Tina Turner 7/3/21 – Ally (10 minutes)
AFO Core Strength: Rosalia 7/2/21 – Erik (10 minutes)
AFO Power Yoga: Rosalia 7/2/21 – Mariana (20 minutes)
My chart was a little wacky for OTF but it was a great endurance day workout. It was nice to have a day off from running on inclines. The Tina Turner classes were good, especially the arms class. You use 2-3lb weights but it’s a total arm burn since there are no breaks. The Rosalia classes were decent but I wasn’t a fan of the music.
Total Weekly Mileage: 15.4 miles
Summary: 8 runs*, 1 bootcamp, 14 cycle, 5 yoga and 11 OTF/strength/HIIT classes.
*I include running from my OTF workouts, boot camp classes and stand alone runs.
Peloton Artist Series Classes Progress – 341/361
I will finish up the Peloton All For One classes next week. It’s been super fun working my way through them and discovering new artists.
My dad had a few follow up appointments this week and luckily they all went well! The neurologist was really pleased with his progress and mentioned that he may be able to get back to driving in the next few weeks. I’m just so thankful that his recovery continues to go well and that he is feeling better. I’ll probably always worry about his health but it’s always reassuring to hear good news from doctors.
…and now for this week’s memes
That’s it! I hope you had a great week 🙂
