Well, it seems that when I take a week or so off from blogging, I fall behind in my playlist sharing. I have THREE playlists to share with you in this post, so keep scrolling if you want to check them all out! I’ll begin with my most recent mix. It’s a mothers’ day themed ride. Some great tunes on this one believe it or not. I love any playlist that includes some Genesis and not one, but two songs by Queen. Happy, Happy Mother’s Day to all you cycling moms out there!
I also created a collaborative Mother’s Day playlist which includes quite a few songs that did not make it to my final playlist, but some that you may want to use. You can also subscribe to it and add your own songs!
Here are the teaching notes:
Hey Mama: Warm up
Momma’s Boy: Continue warm up and bring it out of the saddle for a standing climb, gradually adding on the gear
Tie Your Mother Down: seated accelerations
Stacy’s Mom: Standing climb
Lady Madonna: Seated flat
Mama: Heavy standing climb
I Was Born to Love You: Seated climb, adding gear on each chorus
Wings: Standing flat
Shake What Your Mama Gave Ya: Seated accelerations
We Are Family: Standing Flat
Time: 00-1:104 Seated flat. As the volume increases, increase gear to a seated climb. Finish last 40 minutes seated flat
Oh Mama Hey: Standing flat
Requium For A Tower: Recovery
Metal Tabata: 20 second seated accelerations (x8) with 10 second recoveries
Daughters: Cool Down
You Can Finally Meet My Mom: Stretch
The second playlist is my Cinco de Mayo ride. We always have a great time with this one! Here ya go:
As with my Mother’s Day playlist, I also created a collaborative Cinco de Mayo Playlist. Feel free to share your favorites:
And here’s one last playlist to share, featuring two new ones that I’m loving right now: Michael Franti’s I’m Alive (Life Sounds Like), and Popular Song by Mika I hope you enjoy!
If you read this far, thanks! I hope to put up a new post this week with Monday’s playlist as well as some thoughts as I get ready for my 90+ mile ride coming up a week from today. SO excited!!!
