How are you guys?! If you are in the NorthEast are you ready for snow? I am. In fact, I welcome it–sure the kids drive me nuts but I am so far behind on all my shows that I don’t mind a weekend of catching up!
Its time for Friday Fitness!!
It was a really good week fitness wise. Because of the long weekend I was able to go to a Peloton Cycle class in a Sunday! Not only that but it was a NFL themed 60 minute ride that was just extraordinary. The class was packed and our amazing instructor was recapping games for us while we pushed on the bike.

It was two of my favorite things spinning and football coming together in perfect harmony. I am officially obsessed with the Peloton Cycle life. I am putting it out there in the universe that I will get a Peloton bike in 2016 so that I can tap into a live class or on demand class anytime I want. Peloton Cycle = Bae.
Workouts of the Week
On Monday night I completed my first at home workout of 2016! While watching my favorite hip hop soap opera on VH1 I picked up my Kettlebells and put in work!!
1 minute running in place
1 minute high knees
1 minute ankle touches
(By this time my heart rate was up!)
The following was done with a 15lb kettlebell
- 20 goblet squats
- 15 lunges on each leg
- 15 swings with both arms
- One leg bent over row (balance tester!)
- 15 single arm shoulder presses
I repeated that 3 times — it was tough!!
On Wednesday I was feeling pretty crappy but I went to workout anyway because the training miles for the race in 4 weeks has been minimal. I was able to get in a few miles and do some leg presses for the strong leg project.
Thursday I took my first CYC spin class. Review coming soon!!
I got inked!
So remember a few weeks before the marathon when I told you guys that I would get a tattoo to commemorate all of the blood, sweat and tears of my marathon? Well, I did it!
It was super easy! It didn’t hurt nearly as much as I expected and I love it so so much! I actually want one more tattoo and then I’m done. I think. 🙂
