January 2014 Cycling Playlist

I have a favorite grey T-shirt that is 20+ years old.  I know this, because it was issued to me in High School for PE class.  It was part of our uniform, along with lovely polyester kelly green shorts.  The T-shirt more than made up for what the shorts were lacking in comfort.  The shorts were really terrible!

I am not a pack rat at all, but somehow this grey High School PE t-shirt has remained in my possession through the years.  And much to my husband’s chagrin, has also remained a regular piece in my wardrobe…but only as a pajama shirt (which is possibly even more disappointing to my husband.)

I love this T-shirt for it’s softness, it’s coziness, it’s history (I hated PE in High School—ironic that fitness is a major part of my chosen career) and for the fact I can still fit into it :)

How does this relate to indoor cycling?

Here’s my analogy:  Interval Cycling Rides are the equivalent of my worn out grey t-shirt:  comfortable & easy!  –Though not in the physical sense!  Interval rides are my go-to when either inspiration is running low or I am short on time.  I know I can teach the hell out of an interval ride!  Everyone will have a good time and get a great workout!

Thus, January’s Indoor Cycling Playlist & Profile:  GOODNESS GRACIOUS is an interval ride.  What more can I say about it other than you have hills, valleys, anaerobic heart rates, awesome music and a really good time!
Did I mention the music was awesome?  It is.

ANATOMY OF A PLAYLIST

Way back when I first started teaching Spinning® I struggled with making playlists and ride profiles for my classes.  One, my perfectionist tendencies would flare up and Two, I was just never very clear on the best way to write a class (remember, Spinning® was my very first foray into group exercise…and isn’t everything aRead More >
