Happy Sunday! Winter is here. With temperatures below freezing all week, I was very appreciate of my basement gym. Thankfully we didn’t get any more snow or ice, so that’s a plus. My OTF membership is still paused, so it was another week of fun-filled Peloton workouts.
Here’s a recap of my week in workouts:
Monday, January 10
Top 50 of 2021 Run: #50-41 12/26/21 – Selena (30 minutes)
Core Strength 11/29/21 – Marcel M (20 minutes)
Holiday Party Ride 12/12/21 – Kendall (30 minutes)
Bodyweight Strength 11/25/21 – Erik (15 minutes)
Selena’s run was decent – I didn’t care too much for the playlist which made the run seem super long. Kendall’s ride was really creative. During the class she talked about an imaginary holiday party where all the Peloton instructors could attend (instructors from Germany, London and the US). It was funny to hear her talk about what she imagined they would be wearing or doing during the party. It made the class go by quickly too.
Tuesday, January 11
Top 50 of 2021 Run: #40-31 12/27/21 – Jermaine (30 minutes)
Full body Strength Warm up 11/29/21 – Marcel M (10 minutes)
Top 50 of 2021 Full Body Strength: #10-1 – Andy (30 minutes)
Glutes & Legs Strength 11/11/21 – Erik (15 minutes)
Gospel Yoga Flow 1/9/22 – Chelsea (30 minutes)
The run with JJ was awesome! I think this was the best playlist for the Top 50 series classes. I’m convinced that Andy tried to kill me during the AMRAP for the last 5 minutes of class – it was kind of nuts! I heard good things about Chelsea’s Gospel yoga flow classes and this one didn’t disappoint. The class moved a little fast for me but I modified the moves when needed.
Wednesday, January 12
Holiday Vacation Ride 12/15/21 – Robin (30 minutes)
Tabata Ride 11/8/21 – Cliff (15 minutes)
Top 50 of 2021 Run: #30-21 12/28/21 – Rebecca (30 minutes)
Core Strength 11/22/21 – Marcel M (10 minutes)
Slow Flow 12/7/21 – Nico (30 minutes)
My sleep has been off for a few days which is probably why I decided to sleep in before tackling my workout. This meant I had to cut my workout short, but I was okay with that as I was able to get in cardio and strength. On the plus side, I felt more awake for the rest of the day so that extra hour of sleep did wonders.
Thursday, January 13
Top 50 of 2021 Run: #20-11 12/29/21 – Adrian (30 minutes)
Walk + Run 11/9/21 – Tobias (20 minutes)
Full Body Strength 6/20/19 – Jess (20 minutes)
Disco Ride 12/1/21 – Cliff (30 minutes)
90’s Pop Ride 11/1/21 – Cliff (20 minutes)
Full Body Strength 11/9/21 – Erik (10 minutes)
Adrian definitely brought the energy during his run. It seemed like he got more pumped up as he heard each song on the playlist, lol. The Discos ride was a lot of fun because the playlist included all of my favorite disco songs.
Friday, January 14
Recovery Run 9/10/19 – Jess (20 minutes)
Power Walk 12/28/21 – Jess (20 minutes)
Top 50 of 2021 Ride: #50-41 12/26/21 – Leanne (30 minutes)
Top 50 of 2021 Ride: #40-31 12/27/21 – Alex (30 minutes)
Classical Yoga Flow 12/2/21 – Nico (30 minutes)
I knew I wanted to take it a little easier on my legs so the recovery run followed by a power walk was perfect. The Top 50 of 2021 rides were great too. At this point, I’ve heard the playlists twice before (for the Top 50 of 2021 strength and run classes), but the classes still felt fresh and fun.
Saturday, January 15
Top 50 of 2021 Ride: #30-21 12/28/21 – Cody (30 minutes)
Arms & Light Weights 12/1/21 – Cliff (10 minutes)
Saturday60: Advance Full Body Bootcamp 1/15/22 – Jess (60 minutes)
Amy Winehouse Post-Run Stretch 1/14/21 – Joslyn (10 minutes)
Of course Cody’s class was awesome. I find that whenever I’m not in the mood to workout, that quickly changes once I take one of his classes. First advanced #Saturday60 bootcamp of 2022 and I was toast! Even after doing a 10 minute stretch after class, I just sat on the floor for a few more minutes to get myself together. Also I highly recommend the Amy Winehouse post-run stretch – it was really good.
Sunday, January 16
My back was hurting me after yesterday’s class. It felt a little better when I woke up, but still a little stiff. I’m not sure what workouts I’ll be able to do today, if any, but I’ll see how it feels this afternoon.
On a more positive note, it’s my mom’s birthday! We plan on getting dinner delivered from a local restaurant and enjoying a few drinks later on today.
Running – 15.6 miles
Cycle – 43.79 miles
Strength Training – 130 minutes
Bootcamp – 60 minutes
Peloton Artist Series Classes – 487/493
Winter was out in full force this week, especially this weekend. Kudos to anyone that braved the outdoors for a run. I was freezing just walking back and forth from my car.
How is the grocery situation where you live? We’re starting to see empty shelves again, but I know it will get better in a few weeks. Also related to food, I saw this meme and automatically shook my head in agreement. The prices have definitely gone up over the past few weeks!
…and now for this week’s memes
That’s it! I hope you had a great week 🙂
