fuck. she's my favorite, that's awful
Set PR(a lowly 310) this week on Emma's 90s ride. Her and Kendall are my go-tos for an asskicking.
Just find ways to look forward to it. I put sports on the tv and my own playlists, and tell myself it’s gonna be awesome to have the rest of the night free on the couch and feeling accomplished
i also tell myself “just gonna do a quick 20 minute ride” to convince myself to get on the bike, then as I find myself not hating it I extend the workout time
This is a personal thing but I air drum during the warmup and any active rest. It's probably a reason my climb to 400 will be slower than some but it makes the rides more enjoyable.
Doing my own playlists for some of the power zone rides might be a good idea. I love that program but I hate not having control over what genre of music I'm getting.
this going to sound dumb but really it’s just about jumping on. That’s it. Just start and after a few days it will start to become habit and will be easier. There is no magic formula. Find what time of the day you “like” to workout more and do it then. Start with easy classes so you don’t get overwhelmed or unmotivated by doing a class that is too difficult. Don’t judge your performance by how others do.
Another stupid step that works is to change into the clothes you work out in. It's a simple action that gets you ready and mentally allows you to think you have committed to it
I find that having a schedule of different workout types helps. I do the Hardcore on the Floor workout list on facebook (combo of rides and floor stuff, or pick and choose). It helps take out any guessing or helps lessen indecision in what I want to do that day. If there are things they have on the list I want to modify, I'll do that. If I decide to buck their schedule for a week, fine. I'm doing the Power Zone Pack challenge right now as well. These types of things help me stay motivated.
Thank you for posting this. It inspired me and I hit 401 today. Been wanting that for a minute.
My last two pop-punk rides have been with Camilla and Robin. So much better than the Kendall rides
I don’t ride peloton but in terms of some things that help me get a workout in
set out the clothes you’re going to wear to workout in the night before. It’s just one less thing you have to worry about or an excuse in the morning. Plus you feel like shit if you miss and keep having to look at them
Simple yet effective, when the alarm goes off just get your feet on the floor. Don’t think just swing them out of bed and stand.
It’s all in building a habit for the time that works for you. For example I know if I don’t do it first thing in the morning I can think of a 1000 excuses not to later in the day.
Someone said it but set a specific goal. Not I want to exercise more but something that exercising more will allow you to do, that you want to do, that you couldn’t do without it. It has to be specific and meaningful to matter.
Leanne is just the best
That Robin ride(her first pop-punk)… *chefs kiss*
I find the Power Zones programs to be way more motivating than the generic classes. You can see your progression and the plan to improve instead of listening to the new-age self help bullshit a lot of the instructors sell while you’re trying to breathe lol. It also tells you the schedule for the week, if its helpful to be “told” your schedule
Starting PT today. Finally got cleared to workout. Light lifting and indoor cycling.
Doing the power zone program was the most consistent I was with it. I need to get back to it bad.
I think I’m going to be strictly power zone and just rides/scenic rides from now on.
I don’t know who to listen to, Dr who did my surgery said I’m good to go light weights and indoor cycling PT only did intake so told me to wait for at least a week after my first session. I’ll probably end up waiting cause I don’t want any setbacks but it suck to be so close to the finish line. Hopefully I won’t need shoulder surgery too. Oh welp will probably stay on the app membership for the foreseeable future.
Denis Morton: “Mitochondrial enzymes…”
I really dislike Bradley Rose rides.
Does anyone know a way to find your power zone history? I forgot to keep track of mine before I did the FTP test, so I’d like to go back and be able to track my progress.
You’d just have to go through your workout history.
Or do you mean the movement of your actual zones?
Yeah I mean the movement of my actual zones.
Gonna take the new Kendall pop punk ride in 2 hours, that's a great setlist for me (Cute is What We Aim For, and lol that Kendall still plays Brand New)
Just released some Yin Yoga classes
Has anyone ever recalibrated their bike? I can’t tell if my bike is slightly off or my output is just increasing naturally due to riding more. I’ve had the original bike almost 3 years and never done any sort of recalibration.
Great recent 20 min ride with Dennis that ends with the 10 minute song Dance Yrself Clean by LCD Soundsystem
I had my first out of body Peloton ride in a while where I just completely zoned out like a trance and pushed myself like crazy the whole second half of that ride
i'm looking to do a little bit more structured long-distance training on the bike, like rides of 120 or 150 minutes to train for mountaineering. anyone ever set up their own ride? Wondering if there might be a random widget out there that you can input a target time/output that gives you power-zone like intervals for a long period of time
90% of my rides are using the Just Ride feature. You can set a time or output goal for the ride.
Unclipped after a warm up ride this morning and my left pedal broke in the spot where the back of the clip goes in. I Googled it and the first Reddit post was a question and picture of exactly how mine looks. Apparently Peloton suggests replacing your pedals once a year and this is a known weakness, so now I’m buying pedals and not able to ride for a week (hopefully less)
This happened to me as well, but it was less than a year after I bought it. I called customer service and they replaced it for me for free. It did take about a week to receive it though.
Lucky timing for you, I’m about a month over the one year warranty so I don’t expect any help from them
Did a thing today. It would be nice to know avg workouts per week during the span. I still love this thing, hope they keep the company around.
been training for a half marathon, so my rides have dipped in quantity and quality, but I am appreciative of all the cross training options I have available to me.
Is there anything that does swimming classes?
Are you doing the 3 part marathon training program on there? If so how is it? Still can’t put weight on my shoulder and bicep so I can’t ride. Want to try and train for LA next year.
I don’t think there is any way to simulate swimming if that’s what you’re asking.
nah, just my own training.
Most YMCAs have swimming lessons
Going for ride #700 on Emma's 5 PM ride today if anyone is also planning on that ride
Have kid baseball at 5:30 or I'd totally jump on this. Congrats.
you must hit a lot of homers against those kids
have PT at 2 but I’ll be there in spirit. Hopefully you’ll get a call out m.
Pretty great deal on some decent shoes here. Use code SNEAKERS for another 30% off. It’s something like $60 in the cart.
Only real knock might be that the sole isn’t carbon fiber, but that will never matter on a Peloton.
I have a Peloton plus (~2 years old) and I ride a hybrid bike outside (no clips).
Should I replace the Peloton shoes with these?
What's the point in replacing the shoes I got for peloton? They seem to work fine, I guess?
Never tried the ADIDAS but the Nikes I own are way more comfortable than even the premium Peloton shoe.
Has anyone had issues with the Peleton shoe causing aching in the arch of your foot? It's been happening to my right foot and it's not because I have the straps too loose. Wondering if I should just buy new shoes instead.
Try readjusting the cleats and tightening them. They move over time and cause that pain.
First rides in almost five months. Mentally it was great to actually sweat. Physically I’m not were I was before my injury ended up doing about 12 miles in the 40 minutes. Shoulder and bicep held up but I could feel them. I’ll probably stay app for a couple more months. But at least
