Happy Super Bowl Sunday! I’m actually not watching the game this year but I’m all about the Puppy Bowl on Animal Planet 🙂 I mean seriously, is there anything cuter than puppies?! I know it may seem corny but it’s really super cute to watch!
It was another cold week (polar vortex anyone?) but luckily we are warming up next week. Actually on Tuesday it’s supposed be close to 60 degrees – this weather is so nuts!
I’m actually happy that January is over. It seemed like the longest month ever and I’m looking forward to February.
Here’s how my workouts went this week:
Monday, January 28
Powerwalk (30 minutes) + Y2K Spinning Class (30 minutes).
My stomach felt off for most of the day so I skipped my run. I still wanted to get in some exercise so opted for a power walk and spin class. This was my first time taking a power walk class on the Peloton app and it was harder than I thought it would be! Between the crazy inclines and speed, I was sweating!
Tuesday, January 29
2 mile run.
I went to an Orange Theory Fitness Happy Hour event after work so I squeezed in these miles when I got home. The event was a lot of fun and it was nice to meet some of the coaches and the owner.
Wednesday, January 30
Advanced Total Body Bootcamp (60 minutes).
Originally I planned on going to my weekly boot camp class at the gym, but then the “snow squall” hit my area which basically made it impossible to see. I actually made it home from work just in time to avoid it, but then I had no desire to go back out.
I still wanted to get in a boot camp class so I took this class from the Peloton app. I liked the way it was structured – 7 minute warm up, 8 minute incline run, 15 minutes upper body, 15 minutes internal run, 15 minutes lower body. So not only did I get in about 3 miles of running but my arms and legs got a good strength workout as well!
Thursday, January 31
3 mile run.
I was short on time so I knew this interval HIIT run would be the most bang for my buck!
This was also probably the coldest day of the week for us, but still nothing compared to Chicago!
Friday, February 1
REST DAY but I did a 10 minute stretching class to help my hips/leg.
I also added up all my miles for January – 61 miles. One of my goals this year is to run at least 50 miles a month. I know this will help with my overall goal of staying consistent in regards to my running this year.
Saturday, February 2
4 mile run.
Yup, nothing sexy about Winter running. The real feel was 1 degree when I left the house so I was all about the layers!
Sunday, February 3
Hip Hop Spinning (30 mins) + Powerwalking (30 mins).
I got in a quick workout so that I could enjoy the Puppy Bowl and snacks later on today.
Total Weekly Mileage: 12 miles
Summary: 4 runs, 2 spinning classes, 1 boot camp, 2 walking classes
Grade This Week – B+
Overall not a bad week considering I haven’t feel 100% this week. On Monday my stomach just felt off so I had to skip my run and get in another workout. The rest of the week I felt congested, but I don’t have a cold. It’s just a weird feeling.
In funny news, this meme made me LOL super hard this week:
You’ll only understand this is you watched the FYRE Festival documentary on Netflix. This man was really willing to go above and beyond – that’s for sure, lol. If you haven’t watched this yet, you definitely should. What a train wreck!
That’s it for this week!
How did you deal with the extreme weather? Did January seem like a long month to you?
