I have two spin playlists to share with this post. This week I’m teaching four classes, so the first two are original, and the second two will probably be a combination of some favorites from the originals. The weather here has been unseasonably warm, so I’ve been busy training outdoors. Tomorrow’s high temperature should be in the 80’s. That’s INSANE for Central New York in March. We have had an incredibly warm winter with very little snow. Needless to say, the snowshoes I got for Christmas were not used even once. 😦 I hope that wherever you are, you are able to get out and enjoy some beautiful weather as well!
