Something For Everyone

hope everyone is enjoying the olympics!  as of today, official USA medal count — 29 gold, 15 silver and 19 bronze.  woohoo!  i have definitely noticed an increase in my class size since the olympics started– so awesome.  i love that people are inspired by world class athletes, and jollyspins is a great place to start.  🙂

i found a playlist i had not yet posted.  just to warn you, it has a tiny cheese factor, but always fun to ride along to the songs that love to get stuck in your head.  enjoy:

  • montell jordan – this is how we do it (3:59) : warm up / stretch.  blast from the past, i know
  • minimalistix – struggle for pleasure (3:56) : seated sprints with standing recovery
  • train – drive by (3:17) : flat road, endurance ride.  uncomfortable resistance.
  • selena gomez – love you like a love song (3:08) : jumps out of the saddle.  this starts the beginning of 12 min of out of the saddle/climbing work.
  • nina simone – sinnerman remixed (4:35) : out of the saddle, ladder climb
  • steppenwolf – magic carpet ride (4:20) : heavy climb, increasing for first 2 minutes.  middle 2 min, climbing out of the saddle.  drop down and push last 20 seconds.
  • republica – ready to go (5:02) : sprints
  • christopher cross – ride like the wind (3:57) : flat road, endurance ride.  approx 5/10 PRE.
  • nikka costa – everybody got their something (4:21) : seated at the start, moving out of saddle at end.  focus on speed.
  • britney spears – i wanna go (3:30) : i have a love/hate relationship with this song.  but it has great energy, so a good one for jumps.
  • dave matthews band – why i am (3:54) : last climb, steady up  hill.  in and out of the saddle at end.
  • the doobie brothers – listen to the music (3:47) : cool down / stretch
