Happy Sunday. I hope that everyone had a great week! I can’t believe that February starts tomorrow. January felt like a long month but this past week went by quickly.
Here’s how my workouts went this week:
Monday, January 25
Peloton Jess King Experience: New Year’s Eve Special Ride 12/31/20 – Jess K. (45 minutes)
Peloton Core Strength 10/29/18 – Matt (5 minutes)
Peloton Power Walk 10/24/19 – Chase (45 minutes)
Peloton Go Canada! Yoga Flow 6/29/20 – Kristin (20 minutes)
I considered this an active recovery day (not sure if that’s right or not, lol). I heard that the NYE ride was fun so I decided to try it out. The energy was great but the ride had a lot of flashing lights (it was quite the production) and it started messing with my eyes after a while. I just put my head down and kept going with the ride. The power walk was great! It was basically one minute off one minute on and the playlist was awesome. I needed a day off running and this combo of classes was perfect. My hamstrings felt pretty tight most of the day so I did some stretching and a quick yoga class after I finished my work day.
Tuesday, January 26
Peloton Latin Celebration Ride 10/2/19 – Ally (20 minutes)
Peloton All For One Cool Down Ride 7/2/20 – Tunde (10 minutes)
Peloton Pride Core Strength 6/9/20 – Robin (10 minutes)
Orangetheory Fitness – Lift 45 Upper Body (45 minutes)
Peloton Walk + Run 8/5/19 – Jess (45 minutes)
I split up my workouts due to my work schedule which ended up going pretty well. I was able to sneak in the cycle and core classes during a break in meetings and then did the walk + run class after my OTF class. I had to start work a little after 6am so I had a little more wiggle room with my breaks during the day.
The Lift 45 is a new class that OTF introduced earlier this month. There’s no treadmill or rowing – it’s all weights focused. This class was upper body focused but they also offer lower body and full body classes too. It felt weird to not get any splat points or hit the orange zone but I really did enjoy the class since I love strength training. I’m thinking of adding one of these classes to my weekly workouts when possible.
Wednesday, January 27
Orangetheory Fitness – ESP (45 minutes)
Peloton Holiday Ride 12/4/19 – Denis (20 minutes)
Peloton All For One Cool Down Ride 7/3/20 – Leanne (10 minutes)
Peloton Chest & Back Strength 7/30/19 – Jess (10 minutes)
Peloton Hike 1/26/21 – Jess (20 minutes)
The soreness in my upper body from the Lift 45 class was in full effect for my morning OTF class – it was a little painful, lol. I threw in a short lunchtime hike to get in the rest of my steps for the day.
Thursday, January 28
Peloton Pop Bootcamp 8/19/19 – Jess (20 minutes)
Peloton Glutes & Legs Bootcamp 4/3/19 – Jess (20 minutes)
Peloton Core Bootcamp 6/11/19 – Jess (20 minutes)
Peloton Wicked Ride 1/21/21 – Leanne (30 minutes)
I was looking for something a little different and thought these 20 minutes bootcamps would be fun. I’ve never done any of the 20 minute bootcamps so it was nice to have one section on the tread and one section on the floor. Don’t get me wrong – I still love the #Saturday60 bootcamps, but sometimes I get sick of switching back and forth between the tread and the floor (we switch a total of 6 times in that class). The Wicked ride was okay. I’m not familiar with the musical at all so I didn’t know what to expect. I liked the songs but felt that some of them were a little slow for the ride.
Friday, January 29
Peloton Year of Yes Walk + Run 12/21/20 – Adrian (20 minutes)
Peloton Year of Yes Run 1/12/21 – Jess (20 minutes)
Peloton Year of Yes Ride 1/4/21 – Tunde (20 minutes)
Peloton Year of Yes Ride 1/9/21 – Robin (20 minutes)
Post Malone Yoga Flow 1/29/21 – Chelsea (20 minutes)
I felt like motivation and inspiration so I decided to stack a few of the Year or Yes classes. All of the instructors have advice and words of wisdom based off their own experiences and I learn something from every class. This may be my favorite Peloton series.
Saturday, January 30
Orangetheory Fitness – Power (45 minutes)
Peloton Holiday Ride 12/13/19 – Tunde (20 minutes)
Peloton Low Impact Ride 5/2/20 – Leanne (10 minutes)
Peloton Bodyweight Strength 6/6/19 – Jess (10 minutes)
That OTF workout was extra spicy! At one point I looked up at the board and every person had their heart rate in the orange or red zone. That’s super rare since its very unusual to get your heart rate elevated enough to hit the orange or red zones on the floor. The workout had a little bit of everything – 30 to 60 second sprints on the treadmill, 30 second power rows on the rower and burpees and thrusters on the floor. I used the cycling classes once I got home to help flush out my legs since they felt a little tight.
Sunday, January 31
Orangetheory Fitness – Lift 45 Total Body (45 minutes)
Peloton Pride Intervals Run 6/13/18 – Rebecca (30 minutes)
Peloton Riopy Slow Flow Yoga 1/28/21 – Aditi (30 minutes)
Went to another Lift 45 class this morning. It was a total body class so we had exercises for the upper body, lower body and core. Wanted to get a little cardio in so I did an intervals class to going between power walking and running.
Total Weekly Mileage: 14.2 miles
Summary: 10 runs*, 3 bootcamps, 10 cycle, 3 yoga and 8 OTF/strength classes.
*I include running from my OTF workouts, boot camp classes and stand alone runs.
Peloton Artist Series Classes Progress – 213/220
Grade This Week – A
It was a week or indoor workouts for me since it was not only super cold outside, but windy as well. We’re supposed to get around a foot of snow starting tonight going into tomorrow but I hope that they are wrong on the estimates. I love Winter but I hate the snow because it’s always such a pain in the butt to shovel and it’s so messy!
My knee felt better this week. I did a few walks and walk/run workouts so I think that helped. It’s probably an overuse injury so I think as long as I scale back on the running a bit, it should continue to feel better.
In unrelated news, we somehow forgot to pack away this little guy with all of the Christmas items. All that stuff is packed away so we will just have a penguin cookie jar out all year long. Maybe I’ll move him to different parts of the house throughout the year, lol.
…and now for this week’s memes 🙂
That’s it! I hope you had a great week 🙂
