Happy Sunday. Another week with lots of heat here in the Northeast. We might as well say Summer is here, even though it’s not official until June 20.
Here’s a rundown of my workouts from this week:
Monday, June 7
Peloton Warm Up Run 8/26/19 – Jess (10 minutes)
Peloton RENT Run 6/1/21 – Jess K (30 minutes)
Peloton Core Strength 3/16/21 – Irene (10 minutes)
Peloton Pride: Power Zone Endurance Ride 6/24/20 – Matt (30 minutes)
Peloton RENT Full Body Strength 6/3/21 – Matty (30 minutes)
Peloton Full Body Stretch 11/21/18 – Selena (5 minutes)
I did a little bit of everything to start off the week. I’m not a huge Broadway fan but both the RENT classes were pretty good.
Tuesday, June 8
Peloton Pride Run 6/21/20 – Matt (30 minutes)
Peloton Core Stretch 3/16/21 – Irene (5 minutes)
Peloton Pride Ride 7/24/20 – Erik (30 minutes)
Peloton Pride: Broadway Ride 6/26/20 – Sam (30 minutes)
Peloton Post Ride Stretch 6/4/21 – Sam (5 minutes)
I really enjoyed the Pride run with Matt. Toward the end of the class he spoke about how we can all do our part to help any and all communities that are treated unfairly. Although the problems are large, we can all do our part to treat everyone with fairness and respect. Both Pride rides were good, especially the one with Sam. He’s really growing on me as an instructor, primarily because he literally smiles all the time!
Wednesday, June 9
Peloton Hip Hop Walk 6/8/21 – Jess (20 minutes)
Peloton Walk + Core 10/2/19 – Jess (30 minutes)
Peloton Years & Years Ride 6/3/21 – Leanne (30 minutes)
Peloton LHM: Fresh Friday Ride 10/2/20 – Denis (20 minutes)
Peloton Post-Ride Stretch 5/12/21 – Hannah F (5 minutes)
I really enjoy the walking bootcamps. I think I’ve done all the ones with Jess so I’ll need to find the other ones available with different instructors. I didn’t enjoy the Years & Years ride since I’m not familiar with their music (actually never heard of the artist), but you know I always do all the Artist Series classes so I just tuned out the music and listened to Leanne. She’s always so bubbly so it made the ride bearable. Luckily the ride with Denis was awesome!
Thursday, June 10
Peloton Pride Ride: Live From Home 6/22/20 – Jess K (30 minutes)
Peloton Pride Run 6/17/20 – Matty (30 minutes)
Peloton Core Strength 5/2/21 – Ben (10 minutes)
Peloton Pride Celebration Bootcamp 6/7/21 – Andy (30 minutes)
Peloton Post-run Stretch 2/16/21 – Matty (5 minutes)
I usually don’t take too many ride with Jess King (she can be A LOT, but in a good way), but this Pride ride from last year was a lot of fun. She went all out with her outfit and decorations as she taught the class from home. Another get Pride run from Matty and the AMRAP at the end of the Pride Bootcamp was very spicy!
Friday, June 11
Peloton Sam Smith Run 6/10/21 – Becs (30 minutes)
Peloton Sam Smith Core Strength 6/10/21 – Emma (10 minutes)
Peloton Sam Smith Ride 6/9/21 – Kendall (30 minutes)
Peloton Sam Smith Bike Bootcamp 6/11/21 – Cody (30 minutes)
Peloton Post-Ride Stretch 9/21/20 – Matt (5 minutes)
I was looking forward to this stack all week! I love Sam Smith’s music. Sam is non-binary and I appreciated that all of the instructors used Sam’s preferred pronouns which are they/them (Becs actually re-recorded her run because she used the wrong pronouns for Sam). I feel like these classes open up a dialogue and serve as a source of education, which is always a great thing.
Saturday, June 12
Peloton Pride Ride: Live From Home 6/10/20 – Robin (30 minutes)
Peloton Core Strength 3/22/21 – Irene (10 minutes)
Peloton Full Body Advanced Bootcamp 6/12/21 – Jess (60 minutes)
Peloton Full Body Stretch 5/3/21 – Jess (10 minutes)
I completed my ride and core class before running an errand with my parents. Got back just in time for another #Saturday60 and this one was extra spicy. I knew it would be bad since it was advanced but the last 20 minutes of classes almost took me out. I literally could not stop sweating!
Sunday, June 13
Peloton Fit Family Brain Break 4/20/20 – Jess (5 minutes)
Peloton Fit Family Brain Break 7/28/20 – Jess (5 minutes)
Peloton Core Strength 3/15/21 – Irene (5 minutes)
Peloton Core Strength 3/22/21 – Irene (10 minutes)
Peloton Pride Arms & Shoulders Strength 6/11/21 – Ben (15 minutes)
Peloton Upper Body Stretch 5/26/21 – Ben (5 minutes)
Originally I planned on doing a ride and a longer strength class today but I decided to pare down the workouts and so more of an active recovery day. I picked a few classes just to get my blood flowing. My lower back has been a little wonky lately so I’m hoping a day off from running/spinning will help.
Total Weekly Mileage: 14.2 miles
Summary: 8 runs*, 4 bootcamps, 8 cycle, 1 yoga and 10 strength/HIIT classes.
*I include running from my OTF workouts, boot camp classes and stand alone runs.
Peloton Artist Series Classes Progress – 288/290
Next week I start OTF again. My class class was April 1st so I’m sure the first class back will be a very humbling experience lol. All of the classes now are mask optional, but you can sign up for reduced capacity or full capacity classes. The reduced capacity is how it’s been the last several months (empty space between the stations) so I opted for those classes for now.
On Thursday I completed the Peloton 2021 Annual Challenge by logging 15,000 minutes in workouts. I knew I would hit my goal early but didn’t think it would be this early – I kind of shocked myself!
…and now for this week’s memes
That’s it! I hope you had a great week 🙂
