Thanks for joining Kim and me for the weekly run down today. I was so excited for the Pelothon challenge to start that I dove right into week 1. I needed the motivation this week for sure. Between the heat wave we are having and everything else it’s been a nice distraction. Oh and did I mention that my hip flexor is acting up again? Yes there’s that.
Pelothon 2020 week 1 challenge
The 1st week of the “Pelothon2020” challenge was to take a class from each of the 6 instructors on your team. I am on “TheUnstoppables” team. I regularly take 4-6 classes a day on gym days including stretches and strength training so this would not be too much of a challenge to achieve.
Monday- all 6 Pelothon classes √
I got really into it and did 3 cycle classes, a post ride stretch, core class, upper body strength and short yoga. Definitely motivating and fun to try new instructors.
Tuesday-3.5 mile walk + 20 min arms/shoulders + 10 min core
That darn hip flexor started bugging me as soon as I started running. Switched to a power walk and got it done.
Wednesday-45 min Peloton cycle + 10 min core + 10 min arms + 10 min yoga for hips
Oops I did it again! Took all 6 instructors classes for nice combination of cardio, strength and yoga.
Thursday- 3.5 mile walk + 20 min core + 10 min hips stretch
The heat was on today! Super sweaty 4 mile walk plus some core and stretch. I really enjoyed my frozen Science in Sport popsicles post workout. Super refreshing. A few people asked which popsicle molds I used. I found these right on amazon and they worked perfectly and are single use with a funnel.
Friday- 20 mile outdoor ride
Met up with Coco again for a steamy 20 miler ride. She kept me pedaling away and we had a really solid bike time in spite of the temps. Popped into the pool in the afternoon to cool off. Double shower day!

Saturday- 10 min core + 10 min foam rolling class + lap swimming
A somewhat of a rest day. We were pushing almost 100 degrees and it was too hot to walk outside for me. Headed out to the pool for some casual laps.
Will probably do some more laps and lounge by the pool. I am giving my hip flexor some rest. Only seems to bother me when I run.
