Reboot. Recharge.

When all else fails, just shut it down for 5 seconds and turn it back on. Just like new!

Spin cycle 02/01/07

Can't believe its February already! Where does the time go......

Nice solid ride this morning, continuing with the interval theme of last week. This week's intervals were purely hills. Started off with a ladder scheme, 2 min down, 30 sec up in 3, 2 min down, 60 sec up in 3, 2 min down, 90 sec up in 3, 2 min down, 2 min up in 3, 2 min down, 90 sec up in 3, 2 min down, 60 sec up in 3, 2 min down, 30 sec up in 3, 2 min down - When in 3, everyone added resistance every 30 seconds. After the ladder, we did 4 killer rolling hills.
Good stuff- screaming hamstrings -I just tell the class, your hams will thank you for it tomorrow.

The music was an interesting mix of songs that have a back beat. I'm not quite sure how to classify them - dance music? I don't know. Some of the songs came from an album called Back To Mine, and is a collection of songs picked by the dynamic dance duo, Groove Armada; basically, it's an album of songs that inspired them. One of the songs, Karmastition was mixed by a solid mixologist, Mark Vidler (Go Home Productions) from the UK. His stuff is great - not really mash-ups per se, but rather mix-ups. Go to his website to sample some of his stuff: GoHomeProductions A fellow Spinning and Weight Watchers buddy of mine turned me on to him (Thanks Nancy!).

hmmm, interesting - I wouldn't even begin to know how to do that.
If you can instruct me on how to do it, I could certainly try it...
