Happy Sunday – I hope that everyone had a great week! My energy this week was low so unfortunatley that made all my workouts feel super hard. Other than that, work was pretty good as I was able to complete a lot of things on my “To-Do” list. I’m sure I’ll have other things to add to that list soon, but for now it feels good to be caught up!
Here’s how my workouts went this week:
Monday, August 3
Peloton 2000s Bootcamp 2/12/20 – Jess (45 minutes)
Peloton 2010s Run 8/3/20 – Jess (20 minutes)
Peloton Guns N’ Roses Yoga Flow 1/30/20 – Kristin (30 minutes)
#nevermissamonday! I usually stick to the 60 minute bootcamps, but opted for a 45 minute bootcamp since I knew I would be following it up with a run. Also, I’m trying to do yoga 2-3 times a week to help me some hip tightness I’ve felt recently. It’s not painful but it’s just ‘there’ if that makes any sense?
I’ve noticed some issues when I use the app for live classes – some buffering issues, etc. During the run my mileage kept jumping up and down and then with a minute left in the class, my app went nuts and reset all my numbers back to 0. Thankfully I had the mileage on my treadmill so I knew the distance but I was pretty annoyed after it happened, especially since it was a milestone class (50th run). I’ve heard from others that they had app issues as well so maybe it was a bug in the system?
Tuesday, August 4
Peloton Dolly Parton Run 6/25/20 – Selena (30 minutes)
Peloton XOXO, Cody Ride 2/5/20 – Cody (30 minutes)
Peloton XOXO, Cody Ride 2/12/20 – Cody (30 minutes)
These XOXO, Cody rides were everything! It’s part ride part therapy session with a Q&A mixed in. It was a good way to start my day since I was really tired and didn’t have a huge urge to workout.
Wednesday, August 5
Orangetheory Fitness – Strength (45 minutes)
Peloton Pelothon 2020 Classical Run 8/5/20 – Becs (20 minutes)
Peloton Pelothon 2020 Strength 8/3/20 – Chase (10 minutes)
Peloton Max Richter Meditation 8/2/20 – Ross (10 minutes)
Back to OTF! It was a strength day so super heavy weights on the floor portion – just what I like! Unfortunately the studio didn’t have internet due to the storm the night before so we couldn’t connect our heart rate monitors for our workout. No problem – I just used the HIIT workout selection on my Apple watch to track the workout. I was just happy they were open and had air conditioning because so many people were without power.
I had a break in-between meetings so I decided to take two short Pelothon 2020 classes. By taking a Pelothon 2020 class, I completed the week 4 Pelothon 2020 challenge. It felt good to complete the challenge early on in the week. Around bedtime I was having a hard time falling asleep so I decided to take a 10 minute meditation class.
Thursday, August 6
Peloton Power Walk 2/28/19 – Matty (30 minutes)
Peloton Ellie Goulding Ride 8/5/20 – Olivia (30 minutes)
Peloton Ellie Goulding HIIT 8/5/20 – Olivia (20 minutes)
Peloton Max Richter Yoga Flow 8/3/20 – Aditi (20 minutes)
I decided to do a little bit of everything. I wanted a day off from running so this power walk was perfect. It allowed me to still get in a good amount of steps while keeping things more low impact. My left foot has been giving me some issues (not consistently but on and off). It’s more annoying than anything else but I’m wondering if I need to rest it more from running?
Friday, August 7
Orangetheory Fitness – ESP (45 minutes)
Peloton Ellie Goulding Run 8/6/20 – Becs (30 minutes)
Loved the ESP workout because it was “a buffet of options” as my coach explained it, lol. It was a nice mix of endurance on the treadmill, strength on the floor with heavy weights and power on the rowers. I hopped on my treadmill once I was back home to do a 30 minute run.
Saturday, August 8
Peloton Two for One: Groove Ride 1/9/20 – Cody & Emma (30 minutes)
Peloton Full Body Bootcamp 8/8/20 – Jess (60 minutes)
Peloton The Greatest Showman Ride 11/16/18 – Robin (30 minutes)
I had originally planned to do a 60 minute ride before the bootcamp class but I ran some errands in the morning and ran out of time. It worked out for the best because I was able to take the Two for One: Groove Ride before the bootcamp class and it was a fun time! I take the bootcamp class, also known as the #Saturday60, live at 10am and it has quickly become my favorite class. I actually look forward to it every Saturday because it’s fun and hard, both as the same time.
Sunday, August 9
Orangetheory Fitness – Strength (45 minutes)
Peloton Grateful Dead Yoga Flow 7/9/20 – Kristin (30 minutes)
I really enjoyed the format of today’s OTF class. It was a true 3G format so we spent around 13-15 minutes at each station – treadmills, rowers and floor. I did the floor portion last and I think I did something to my arm during the plank alternating low rows. It feels better now but still not 100%. I’m going to make tomorrow a cardio day so that I can rest my arm.
Total Weekly Mileage: 17.6 miles
Summary: 9 runs*, 5 cycle, 2 bootcamp, 3 yoga and 5 OTF/strength/HITT classes.
*I include running from my OTF workouts, boot camp classes and stand alone runs.
Peloton Artist Series Classes Progress – 106/116
Grade This Week – A
This was the last week of Pelothon 2020! I finished up the challenge on Wednesday. It was really fun and I actually made more Peloton friends through being on the Legends of Fun team. I hope they do more challenges like this in the future.
I also have a goal to get through all the Artist Series classes by the end of August and I’m pretty sure that will happen! I’ve done over 100 of the classes and have completed all the running, strength and cycle classes – I just have the yoga classes remaining. Overall, it’s been really cool and has exposed me to some new artists and bands. On Friday Peloton announced that the next Artis Series classes will feature Prince and I’m super pumped for that!
Hurricane Isaias decided to roll through the tri-state area on Tuesday. We didn’t have too much damage, but a tree fell onto our deck and roof.
Our neighbors’ deck was cracked in half. Luckily the trees didn’t shatter glass or damage the roof, but the wind was pretty scary. This hurricane actually caused more damage in my area than Hurricane Sandy. Almost everyone I know in my city and surrounding cities lost power but we were lucky and never lost power throughout the whole ordeal. Most people STILL do not have power – it’s such a mess and our governor is opening up an investigation against Eversource (the electricity company for most of CT) because the response has been completely inadequate.
…and now for this week’s meme collection..
That’s it! I hope you had a great week 🙂
