Happy Friday! Thank you for all your reassuring comments on yesterday’s ramble of a post. I really appreciate you sharing your experiences and I think I feel more relief from reading them than from reading any “how to” or advice article. Frankly, I don’t know “how to” do much (do any of us?) so I tend to gravitate toward reading and writing those types of personal reflection posts. I still have a lot of growing up to do but I’m happy with what I learned about myself and my career preferences this summer.
I’m equally as happy with what I did this past week. How’s that for a
lame smooth topic transition? I’m linking up to Heather and Clare to share some things that made me happy this week.
I had only heard of Peloton from Inspiralized but didn’t know there was an actual studio in the city until I saw it on a ClassPass.
A little about Peloton: it’s an indoor cycling bike that provides on-demand classes. You purchase the bike (about $2,000) and pay a monthly membership for access to 10 daily live rides and 300 pre-recorded on-demand rides. Each bike has a monitor so you can see the instructor and it tracks your cadence, wattage and resistance. You can also compete with other Peloton riders across the world.
I took a live class at the studio so I didn’t “choose” my ride or instructor but it was still a great workout. The studio is sleek, modern, clean and includes amenities like free water, towels, spin shoes, locker room supplies (deodorant, lotion, etc.), and complimentary juice samples after class.
I personally didn’t love the instructor (I thought he talked too much) but enjoyed the experience and workout. I know some gyms have one or two Peloton bikes but I have yet to come across them myself. Have you heard of Peloton?
Other favorites from the week:
Dinner at The Little Beet with two of my friends (from kindergarten!) for a last little get-together before I leave.
A new-to-me brand of coconut water. The water is pink!
