All the workouts: 10/3-10/9

Oh hello! Last week was probably one of my most fierce weeks in a while. Not so much this week. But I had fun.

Monday: Physique 57in the am. It was the first day of Rosh Hashanah and I have a personal tradition of waking up early to work out before the long sit at temple.

Tuesday: Nothing.

Wednesday: I took a pretty meh Peloton class. The music was blah and I never really hit my stride.

A high-altitude hike in the Andes

When we planned our recent trip to Colombia, I knew I wanted to fit in an overnight hike. I had never been on one before and I was really curious and excited. I wasn’t sure what it would be like to hike at high altitude. I wasn’t sure how my ankle would hold up. Would I get bored?   It was something I wanted to try. I knew it was a great fitness adventure and I wanted to have a go.

Here we go again. Another week and another recap. I love reading how other people switch up and schedule their weekly workouts, so I’m sharing my own week in review.

Do you have an active lifestyle, or do you just workout?

Is being healthy a discrete part of your day, or the way you approach your day?

I’ve written before about how much I love the Torqboard at Flywheel. It gives any rider a sense of how effective her ride was in terms of caloric burn or general exertion. Spending 45 minutes in a dark room listening to EDM is a really specific way to get your heart going. Part of the reason I think people like spinning is that its contained. You spin for 45 minutes, sweat yourself into a red-faced mess and then you can cross “workout” off your to-do list. I have no hard feelings about this. This is me most days.

But a spin class is a mere 45 minutes so to paraphrase Sonny from Grease “What are you suppose to do with the rest of the 23 hours and 15 minutes of the day?
