This week I used one of my favorite profiles, freshened up with some new tunes. You can find the profile notes in the original post —-> HERE.
Here is the playlist that I used:
My peeps worked hard on this one and they loved it!
I used this playlist later in the week. I’ve been trying out some newer Tabata tracks, and the one I used here is definitely not one of my favorites. I won’t use it again, but hey, maybe you’ll like it. Feel free to switch it out because there are a ton of tabata tracks out there.
Here’s how we rode to this one:
Baby Did A Bad, Bad Thing: Warm up
Take Me to a Disco: Continue warming up, bringing it out of the saddle.
Love Don’t Die: Loving this new song by The Fray. I don’t care for much of their stuff because to me it all sounds the same, but this one has a different sound that I’m really digging. Standing climb
Burn it To The Ground: Seated accelerations on the chorus
Take You Higher: Standing flat. There have been some questions about what I considered a ‘standing flat’. This is not a standing run or acceleration. It’s pretty much a standing climb, but it’s not a heavy climb, it’s a lighter climb. You are definitely using gear and always in control. We pedal to the beat. I guess I just like to differentiate my standing climbs. 🙂
Young Volcanoes: Seated flat (watch out for the a-word in this one, if you watch out for those things…)
Happy Ending: Heavy standing climb-There’s something about MIKA that I just can’t get enough of. Maybe it’s because his voice reminds me of Freddie Mercury. Whatever it is, I love many of his songs. You may not think of this one for a climb, but it actually worked very well. A little crescendo at the end got us to the top of this steep hill.
Ain’t No Sunshine: Keep some of that gear on and bring it back in the saddle for a seated climb.
Animals: Seated accelerations
Snakefood: Alternate seated/standing climb
Ring the Alarm: Rider’s choice
Tabata: Seated accelerations 8×20 with 10 second recoveries
What the Hell: Cool Down
You Are The Best Thing: Stretch
BONUS! I’m teaching the Saturday morning class this week. I don’t know about you, but when you teach only evenings, you definitely notice a different vibe when you teach the morning classes. Saturday mornings are always a little more laid back and I always leave feeling happy and refreshed.
Usually when I teach an extra class like this I recycle an old playlist, but this morning I decided to create a mashup of some of my favorites from my recent playlists. Here is what I came up with:
Yes, I did use The Fox again. I used it on Halloween because I thought I could get away with it and everyone loved it, so I figured one more time wouldn’t hurt, right? Last time, I swear!
Here are the Deezer links for each playlist:
Have a great weekend!
