Happy Sunday! I hope that everyone had a great week. This week I slowly started to feel more like myself – a little less anxious and tired. I’m hoping this upward trend continues (fingers crossed).
Here’s how my workouts went this week:
Monday, October 12
Orangetheory Fitness – Strength (45 minutes)
Peloton All For One Warm Up Ride 7/2/20 – Cody (10 minutes)
Peloton BHM: 80s Hip Hop Ride 2/23/20 – Tunde (20 minutes)
Fun OTF strength class followed by 30 minutes of cycle!
Tuesday, October 13
Peloton Bike Bootcamp: Full Body 9/15/20 – Jess (45 minutes)
Peloton Keith Urban Run 9/25/20 – Matt (30 minutes)
Peloton Yoga Flow: Hamstrings 1/23/19 – Aditi (10 minutes)
Peloton Breathing Meditation 2/25/19 – Aditi (10 minutes)
This was my second bike bootcamp class and I enjoyed it even more than the first one. Overall I think that I still enjoy the traditional bootcamp classes (half treadmill/half strength), but the bike bootcamps also provide an awesome workout. I was super surprised that I enjoyed the Keith Urban run. I don’t like country music but the songs that Matt picked were really good and I also enjoyed his storytelling during the run as well.
Wednesday, October 14
Peloton Celia Cruz Run 10/13/20 – Jess (20 minutes)
Peloton Celia Cruz 10/13/20 – Tunde (30 minutes)
Peloton 90s Hip Hop HIIT Cardio 9/29/20 – Jess (20 minutes)
Peloton Yoga Basics: Triangle 12/3/18 – Anna (5 minutes)
The Celia Cruz classes were So good! The music was amazing and I could tell that both instructors really took their time designing the classes. As always, Jess came through with a fun, but hard HIIT cardio class.
Thursday, October 15
Orangetheory Fitness – Hell Week 2019 Throwback: Crawl (45 minutes)
This year OTF is offering a few “throwback” Hell Week classes before the official start of Hell Week on October 24th. The name of this workout was ‘Crawl’ because it’s all legs based. We did inclines on the treadmill, lots of heavy weights for squats and lunges on the floor and a crazy rowing block where we alternated between 100 meter rows and froggers/squats.
Friday, October 16
Peloton XOXO, Cody Ride 10/13/20 – Cody (30 minutes)
Peloton Yoga Basics: Plank 12/18/18 – Kristin (5 minutes)
Peloton Yoga Flow 1/19/19 – Kristin (20 minutes)
Since I knew I would be running a half marathon on Saturday, I decided to keep things easy for this workouts. I also celebrated ride #350 with Cody which was so much fun. It was a great class with a really, really good playlist. I can see myself taking this class again.
Saturday, October 17
Virtual SoNo Half Marathon
Peloton Yoga Basics: Bridge Pose 10/3/19 – Anna (5 minutes)
Peloton Restorative Yoga 2/14/19 – Anna (20 minutes)
I’ll be honest, I was dreading this day all week because I knew I was no where near trained to run a half marathon, but I didn’t want the year to pass with running a half marathon. Luckily I was blessed with pretty decent weather and no rain when I woke up. Right before leaving the house I told myself to run a nice pace and to see how my body felt. The first 5 miles felt pretty good and then I started getting a few aches and pains. Once I hit double digit miles, my hip and back were both screaming at me to take things easy so I decided to power walk until I hit 13.1 miles. It was hard, but I’m glad that I finished!
The restorative yoga felt pretty good for my legs so I glad I remembered to take that class!
Sunday, October 18
Peloton Sundays with Love Ride 10/18/20 – Ally (30 minutes)
Peloton Yoga Basics: Tree 1/22/19 – Kristin (5 minutes)
Peloton Yoga Flow 1/31/19 – Kristin (30 minutes)
Originally I was supposed to do an OTF class this morning but decided to cancel the class last night since I knew my legs would be extremely sore. When I woke up, I knew I made the right call. I totally underestimated how sore I would be after the half marathon, but I guess that happens when you haven’t done a double digit run in months! Cycle always makes me legs feel better so I did a 30 minute class and followed that up with yoga.
Total Weekly Mileage: 20.3 miles
Summary: 5 runs*, 5 cycle, 1 bootcamp, and 3 OTF/strength/HITT classes.
*I include running from my OTF workouts, boot camp classes and stand alone runs.
Peloton Artist Series Classes Progress – 154/155
Grade This Week – A
It was a hard, but good week. The half marathon definitely took a lot out of me, but that’s to be expected. Luckily I don’t have another virtual race until next month and it is a 10K which is a way more manageable distance for me at this point.
I finished up the 2-week Welcome to Peloton Yoga program. While it didn’t make me fall in love with yoga, I do have a better grasp on all the different poses so it has made yoga classes way more enjoyable. I think I’ll still be considered a “beginner” forever since I’m just not very flexible and my balance needs work, but I do know that my muscles will thank me for doing yoga more frequently, even if it’s just doing a few poses for a few minutes.
…and now for this week’s memes 🙂
That’s it! I hope you had a great week 🙂
