Happy Monday!!! With the end of my summer vacation quickly closing in, I will only be able to say that a few more times! 🙂 Just kidding, I really do love getting back to school. Fall is my favorite season and one of the reasons is that I get to start fresh with a brand new school year.
Thanks to everyone that wrote comments about the ‘Total Body Cycle‘. Many of you are doing the same format (45 cycling/45 toning-and this seems to be the most convenient way to do the class). Some of you are doing 30 cycling, 30 toning, but don’t feel that’s enough time- I agree. And others are doing a few minutes on the bike, jumping off and doing floor work, then back on the bike, etc. That one would definitely not work for me. Many of my riders wear bike shoes and I’m sure they wouldn’t want to keep changing in and out of them. I also like my rides to simulate really riding on the road, so jumping off every few minutes wouldn’t make much sense. Also, making a playlist for a class like that would be a nightmare! Can you tell how I feel about that particular format? I promise to update you once the class gets underway and let you know how it’s going. 🙂
Today I’m teaching two classes, so I thought they’d really like this ‘Summer Ladder Profile’ I’ve prepared for them. I’ve done this one a few times already and it’s always a hit. You can see ride notes and playlists for this profile here and here.
Here is the playlist that I used today (NOTE: First two songs are the warm up, The Will Of Man is a recovery and Zorba’s Dance is a fast flat road—->faster!!!—–>faster!!!—–>faster—–>and sprint out the last 20 seconds!!!! So fun! My class LOVES ending on this one!):
Enjoy your week!
