Happy Sunday! How is everyone doing? I’ll admit that the later part of this week has been a little tough for me. I keep waiting to have one week of peace since the pandemic started but it seems like there’s always something bad/sad right around the corner. Sometimes it’s hard to stay positive when there is so much sadness and injustice in the world, but I have to believe that things will improve at some point.
One thing I’m somewhat happy about is August coming to a close. I’m more than ready for all things Fall – cooler weather, leaves changing colors and pumpkin everything.
Here’s how my workouts went this week:
Monday, August 24
Peloton Warm Up Run 10/24/19 – Jess (10 minutes)
Peloton Advanced Full Body Bootcamp 10/26/19 – Jess (60 minutes)
Peloton Cool Down Run 8/22/19 – Jess (10 minutes)
Peloton Billie Eilish Yoga Flow 1/25/20 – Anna (45 minutes)
It probably wasn’t a good idea to do another 60 minute bootcamp class so soon after the #Saturday60 bootcamp class but I wanted to challenge myself. Since it was an advanced bootcamp class it really challenging. At one point on the treadmill I think my soul left my body, lol. I took a yoga class later on that day to help myself decompress.
Tuesday, August 25
Orangetheory Fitness – Strength (45 minutes)
Peloton Hip Hop Ride 4/2/20 – Kendall (30 minutes)
It was Rockstar Day at my OTF studio. I’m always down for a theme day so I was happy to dress up for the class. Besides my lightning bolt earrings stabbing me during the treadmill run, it was a fun class! The playlist for the hip hop ride was really good so I enjoyed that class as well.
Wednesday, August 26
Orangetheory Fitness – Power (45 minutes)
Peloton Rock Run 8/24/20 – Becs (30 minutes)
Peloton Madonna Yoga Flow 6/27/19 – Ross (45 minutes)
This was a nice fast paced class and I really enjoyed it. Lots of sprints (all outs) on the treadmill and rower. I don’t usually do back-to-back OTF classes anymore so I was definitely sore after class. The rock run class that I took once I got back home was fun because it was more grunge rock songs from the 90s so I knew most of them. I decided to do the Madonna yoga class later on in the afternoon because I knew my body needed a good stretch and I want to listen to some fun songs.
Thursday, August 27
Peloton Trap Fun Run 5/14/19 – Jess (30 minutes)
Peloton The Weeknd Ride 8/26/20 – Jess K (30 minutes)
Peloton The Weeknd Full Body Stretch 8/26/20 – Jess (15 minutes)
I’ll be honest, I really didn’t want to workout. It took me a while to roll out of bed. I didn’t do my planned workout because I was tired but still got a good sweat with all of these classes. The 15 minute stretch class was really good, especially for my upper body and hips.
Friday, August 28
Orangetheory Fitness – Endurance (45 minutes)
Peloton The Weeknd Run 8/27/20 – Chase (30 minutes)
Peloton The Weeknd Yoga Flow 8/27/20 – Anna (30 minutes)
Even though I was pretty sore, I had two really good workouts. It was an endurance day at OTF which meant longer pushes on the treadmill and no walking recovery breaks. These workouts are normally hard but luckily I used my Body Helix face mask so I was able to breathe a little easier. I did a 30 minute run once I got back home and the playlist/instructor were both great! The yoga class helped my body feel less tight, especially my hamstrings.
Saturday, August 29
Peloton Hip Hop Run 8/20/20 – Jess (20 mins)
Peloton Trap Run 8/25/20 – Jess (20 minutes)
Peloton Intervals & Arms Ride 7/18/20 – Cody (45 minutes)
Peloton Pop Ride 8/8/20 – Cody (15 minutes)
For some reason Chadwick Boseman’s death on Friday hit me hard – I guess you just never know what will make you very emotional. I was up most of the night and only got a few hours of sleep. I was up early and just decided to workout. I couldn’t do the #Saturday60 live so I decided to spend some time with my two favorite instructors because they always offer words of wisdom and positivity.
Sunday, August 30
Peloton Bodyweight Bootcamp 8/29/20 – Jess (60 minutes)
Peloton Carnival Celebration Ride 8/29/20 – Hannah F (30 minutes)
Peloton Melissa Etheridge Yoga Flow 12/14/19 – Kristin (45 minutes)
I had to switch gears this morning due to a network outage that affected Peloton’s live classes this morning. I think it’s fixed now, but it affected a bunch of other companies too (Starbucks, Garmin, etc). I had planned to take a live 30 minute bootcamp class after Jess’s 60 minute bootcamp, but due to the outage, I hopped on the bike to take a really fun ride. Finished out the morning with a yoga class.
Total Weekly Mileage: 25 miles
Summary: 12 runs*, 5 cycle, 2 bootcamp, 4 yoga 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 – 127/128
Grade This Week – A
I’m currently at 97 miles for the month so it looks like I’ll hit my 100 mile goal for August – thank goodness we have 31 days this month. I haven’t done a 100 mile month since last year but it wasn’t as difficult as I thought it would be – it just took a little more planning on my part to make sure I averaged a good amount of miles per week. Next month I’ll back off the running a little bit since I’ll be doing the Power Zones cycling training.
…and now for this week’s meme collection..
That’s it! I hope you had a great week 🙂
