Sorry it’s been a while but, as promised, I’m posting my latest playlist! I was a little rushed on time so I originally thought that I would use an old playlist, but what I ended up doing was taking an old one and recreating it. ***(AWESOME SPOTIFY TIP AHEAD SO PLEASE READ!!)*** I added new songs and took out some old songs, or switched some existing songs around. So for those of you that follow my playlists and use them as is, here is a friendly warning/suggestion for you: If you are following mine (or anyone else’s) playlists in Spotify and intend to use them to teach your classes, it’s a really (I mean really, really) good idea to simply recreate the playlist song for song (I promise you this will take you less than five minutes). The reason I suggest that you do this is because when I create a playlist, I am the only one that can change it. And I do change up my playlists sometimes. So imagine syncing one of my original playlists to your device and going into your class with notes on each song and their times. On your way to class, I’m here at home switching songs around and editing the heck out of that playlist for my next class. When you get to class and hit play, it’s not at all what you thought it was. Nightmare, right? So recreate the playlist. Really, I don’t mind. I don’t own it. If you feel like you need to, you can even give me some credit. For example, I noticed some people will recreate and put my name on the title: ‘Chrispins Summertime Blues’. But don’t feel like you have to. That way, YOU are the only one that can change it! Just a friendly reminder. 🙂
I hope you enjoyed that Spotify tip. 🙂 And speaking of Spotify, I have amazing news for my friends up in Canada!!! Spofify is coming!!!!
Yesterday I taught my first class in almost two weeks. I gotta tell you, it felt great to be back doing what I love. Here’s the reworked playlist that I used:
Summertime Blues (2:41): Warm up in the saddle
Fist Pump, Jump Jump (3:56) Continue to warm up in the saddle and alternate standing, seated warm up.
Be Okay (3:19) Standing climb
Thunderstruck ( 3:06) Seated accelerations: 3 of them, 25-30 seconds each
Raging Fire (3:45) Standing climb with seated flat on the chorus
Getting in the Mood (3:11) Seated flat
Sweet Whoomp (4:53) *This one is marked ‘explicit’, but I’ve used it several times and have listened to it over and over and I don’t hear any explicit lyrics.* Alternate seated/standing climb
D’Ya Wanna go Faster (2:56) Seated flat with accelerations
Shatter Me Featuring Lzzy Hale (4:41) Alternate seated/standing climb
Climbing to the Top (5:28) Seated climb

Last post, I posted some pics from my recent vacation. In case you didn’t guess, we visited Grand Canyon, Arches and Zion National Parks (Moab Utah rocks!) as well as Yellowstone and Grand Tetons. If you live out there, I’m a little jealous. It is so beautiful everywhere you look. I have to say though, there’s no place like home. Upstate New York is really a beautiful place in the summertime. I was very happy to see green grass and trees as our plane was landing and we were finally home :).
I leave you with a sunset pic from Arches National Park:
Have a fantastic week!
