In keeping with last week’s tradition, I thought I’d share some favorites with you again this week! There are only a few of them, but they are definitely worth sharing:
Jimmy Fallon and Paul Rudd’s epic lip sync contest. Even better than Paul Rudd’s lip syncing is Jimmy Fallon’s reaction. Love both of them.
This recipe from the Fitnessista for Quinoa Enchilada Casserole. If you don’t think you like quinoa, maybe you just haven’t found the right recipe. This recipe (made with canned enchilada sauce) was super easy and delicious! Click the pic for the recipe.
And this amazing Spotify milestone:
My 1000th Spotify follower!! (And then some…) 🙂 A huge thank you goes out to all 1,013 of you!! And if you aren’t on Spotify yet: What are you waiting for? It’s pretty awesome.
Did you ever have one of those weeks where no matter how hard you try, you just can’t get it all done? Maybe it’s just because I was coming off of a vacation week, but this week was pretty cray. Thankfully, it flew by and now that it’s Saturday, I’m feeling pretty accomplished! When I have ‘one of those weeks’, I usually end up recycling a playlist or two. This week, I ended up bringing back two old favorites and putting together a solid new ride for my Saturday morning crew. Good times were had. 🙂
You can see Monday’s playlist and teaching notes here.
And here is Friday’s playlist.
Most of my classes are approximately 55-60 minutes long including warm up and cool down. When I teach on Saturday mornings, my playlists are a bit shorter, most of the time clocking in at 53-54 minutes due to time constraints at my gym. Here is the playlist that I used this morning:
We Won’t Give Up: Warm up
Wild Wild Love: Warm up bringing it out of the saddle
Come With Me Now: Seated/Standing climb
Big Love: Seated accelerations: 3 of them- 20 seconds, 20 seconds, finishing with a 30 second acceleration
Radioactive-The Dirty Trees Remix: Loving this remix! Here’s how we rode it- :00-:35 Standing climb; :35-1:34 Seated climb; 1:34-2:40 Standing climb; 2:40-3:45 Seated climb and 3:45-5:25 Standing climb
The Heart: Seated flat road at around 102 rpms
Dark Horse: Heavy standing climb
The Phoenix: Seated accelerations @ :59 (25 seconds); 2:00 (25 seconds); and 3:14 (45 seconds)
I Know What I Am: Jumps on the chorus
Roads Untraveled: Seated climb
How I Feel: Riders choice. Most of mine chose a standing flat here. 🙂
It’s Over: Recover
Metal Tabata: Seated accelerations 8×20 seconds, 10 second recoveries
Peace: Cool Down
Say Something: Stretch
Have a great week!
