This week marks the start of Pelothon 2020, a four week challenge with different goals each week. For the first week, I have to take a class with every instructor on my team- I chose The Unstoppables which features Alex, Christine, Hannah F, Irene, Matty, and Chelsea. It was so hard to choose a team (they were all great), so I decided to pick the team with the fewest members. I'm happy with my choice and loved trying out new instructors this week! Here's what I did-
30 min Y2K Pop Fun Run with Matty
Felt refreshed after a few days off of running, and did a hilly loop around my neighborhood. This run felt fun, and I crossed off my first instructor from team #TheUnstoppables. I always love Matty's workouts- he's such a positive and uplifting person, and puts a smile on my face.
45 min Beginner Yoga Flow with Chelsea
This was a great class for a few reasons- I really like Chelsea's style and how she moves from position to position (and also how she structures each class), but also because it was a beautiful day and I got to do this outside! I love when I can do outdoor yoga, and it was the perfect day for that. Second instructor done!
45 min Kayak
30 min Classical Music ride with Christine
There is not much more I love more than classical music, so I was really pumped to see one of my team instructors having a live ride this week! This was my first full ride with Christine and I really enjoyed it..her class was structured really well and the music was awesome. I also appreciate the fact that she let us get lost in the music instead of talking constantly (sometimes I like that but sometimes I just want to enjoy the song!).
4 mile Trail Run
30 min Britney Spears Ride with Cody (plus warm up)
OH. MY. GOSH. There are no words to describe how amazing this ride is. Cody is always a ton of fun and I love his rides, but he was in his element for this and it was one of the most enjoyable classes I've taken. I loved it SO much and have never had so much fun working out before!!
45 min Latin Fun Run with Jess
I slept in a bit and headed out when it was pretty warm and humid, and was just dragging on this run. I kept it really easy and made it a run/walk, which felt good. When I got home, I did a foam rolling class which hurt in the best way.
20 min 90s Rock Ride with Alex
20 min Hip Hop Ride with Hannah F
I did these two classes back to back in the morning to finish out week one of Pelothon! I took it really easy for both which was fun- I enjoyed the music a lot. It was interesting to go from Alex's class which was older and had people in the studio (back when that was a thing) and then Hannah's was during Quarantine when it was just her in the studio. The energy was SO different and I can't wait for classes to start back to normal again.
7.5 mile run
Went out first thing in the morning for my long run and PHEW it was hot. I was so warm and tired on this run and walked a lot in the last mile. It actually felt great out when I was walking, just too much when I was running! The best part of this run was listening to Bec's Britney Spears Run- it was SO good.
2 mile run
Another really warm day- the original plan was for a long bike ride, but since it was already in the 80s at 7AM and a heat advisory all day, we nixed that. I ran a mile with Dan and Selma, then another mile solo to hit my weekly goal. A neighbor was out walking and said "It's too hot to do that! It's even too hot to do this"...kind of agree!
30 min Yoga Flow with Denis
This was a nice class but kind of basic- there weren't any fun moves or interesting transitions...just a straight-forward class. Sometimes that's nice and I always enjoy classes with Denis!
Did you do Pelothon? Which team did you choose?
