Good To Be Back Spin Mix

8 Jul

Hope everyone had a fantastic weekend!

Check out this cool lawn mower/bike.  I would totally mow the lawn more often if I had one of these!  Go to this website for more ‘smartly innovative’ things you can do with your bike!

Here’s the playlist for Monday:

    LOVE the playlist Chris, wondering what kind of ride profile you used…Ice Cream Man is sure appropriate for this summer weather! Hope you are staying cool and hydrated – thank you for all of your great music ideas. Take care!

      Thanks for the playlist love! I posted this in a rush, because I had a million things going on yesterday, so I promise to update the post with teaching/profile notes later today or tomorrow, so please check back! 🙂

    Great playlist, Chris, and great profile! I posted a profile from Monday night on my Ping page (Kathy S.) in which I used 3 sets of Tabatas — you and I are on similar wavelengths for sure. 🙂 Love working the class hard!
