New Toys and Another Week
Hi everyone! Another week of quarantine down, and it looks like we're getting close to the end! My county is going to a "yellow" state next week, which means some businesses are allowed to open and small gatherings are allowed to start again. I'm still feeling apprehensive about being in public- maybe I'll always feel like that now. But for now- here are my workouts for the week, including a fun new piece of equipment that I got (my first one I've ever had!)
30 min 90s Fun Walk with Matty
Crush Your Core day 1
I decided to start a new program on Peloton, and picked Crush Your Core with Emma. There are 5-6 classes per week for 4 weeks. Today's was only 5 minutes, but it was non-stop work for that entire time!
20 min Restorative Yoga with Anna
I ended my day with some nice and relaxing yoga. There were lots of amazing stretches in this, and it felt so great.
30 min Backstreet Boys Ride with Cody
Crush Your Core day 2
Another fun 5 minute class, and I got Dan to join in with me. Another good class!
4 mile run
I did a slight modification on my normal 5k route and was able to stretch it into a perfect 4 miler. This run felt great- I ran it without Peloton or music and just listened to my body which I think I needed.
Crush Your Core day 3
20 min Hip Hop Ride with Ally
Crush Your Core day 4
Another 10 minute class and took it easy for the rest of the day.
20 min Punk Rock Run with Chase
Crush Your Core day 5
Today's workout was just a simple full body stretch, which I did right after my run.
30 min Lizzo Ride with Robin
On Peloton's Instagram page, they revealed new badges that you could earn by finding secret rides/runs/flows in the archives. The first clue led me to a Lizzo ride, which was awesome. Robin is a very intense instructor, and wasn't my favorite for spin (I like her a lot in outdoor walks/runs and strength though). The playlist kept me going though and her energy was definitely contagious (just felt a little forced to me!).
30 min AHM Celebration Flow with Aditi
It's Asian History Month, so I was really excited to see a special yoga class to celebrate. This class felt really great and relaxing, and had fantastic music all featuring Asian artists. Aditi told stories about each musician- some of which I've heard of but most were new to me. Loved this class!
30 min 2000s Fun Run with Rebecca
What a fun playlist! I went on this run with Selma, and we had a great time. The sun was shining but it wasn't too hot or cold. Perfect for an easy run.
30 min Broadway Ride with Leanne
This was Leanne's favorite class of 2019 (I'm working my way through this collection to make sure I try each instructor). I LOVED this class so much- I was singing along and worked harder than ever. By the end I was completely spent and dripping in sweat!
10 min Strength
I put together a quick 10 minute strength to do right after my spin class, with a 5 min core workout with Robin and 5 min glutes with Hannah. These were both intense but helped time fly by.
