  • katy perry – walking on air (3:43) : i’m loving the new katy perry cd.  lifts in and out of the saddle
  • rudimental – not giving in (4:00) : i like to keep the resistance from the lifts and then move uphill from there.  this is our first heavy peak.
  • maroon 5 – harder to breathe (4:08) : sprints
  • bastille – pompeii (3:34) : steady, quick flat road
  • bonnie tyler – holding out for a hero (5:49) : continuing the flat road for a bit, i usually cut this one a little short
  • m.y.c. – rock (5:38) : hope you are ready for tabata time!  as a reminder – all out,80% exertion for 20 seconds, ten second break.  repeat 7 times.  total of 8 rounds.  this should tire you out, don’t hold back on those 20 second surges.
  • raphael saadiq – heart attack (3:04) : little bit of recovery, i usually cut a little short so we have a strong finish

I’m Back! Finally, a New Playlist!

hope to keep these coming on a more regular basis as we are officially in holiday season.  so hard to believe thanksgiving is right around the corner.  here is the spotify link : Cycle tunes 10.7.13   enjoy!

  • brooke fraser – coachella (3:32) : one of my favorite singers/songs.  warm up / stretch
  • van halen – you really got me (2:41) : heading uphill, quick surges in the saddle
  • kid rock – all summer long (4:58) : start of approx 8 min of steady uphill climbing.  building up to a peak with this first song
  • eagles – in the city (3:45) : by the time the eagles start, should be a heavy slow point.  head for a quick downhill once the song picks up, and finish with a quick climb to the top.
  • the charlie daniels band – devil went down to georgia (3:35) : bit of recovery from the climbing work.  this is an active flat road.  pushing speed for approx 90 seconds after a solid recovery.
  • tegan and sara – closer (3:30) : lifts in and out of the saddle.
  • kasabian – fire (4:12) : back to climbing.  this time, heavy, quick surges in the saddle.
  • pink floyd – another brick in the wall (3:49) :  continuing the climbing work (noticing a theme here?).  starting out slow, still heavy from our surges.  downhill for a bit and quicken pace as the song picks up.
  • kerli – walking on air (4:27) : ok, i admit this song is a little out there, but it is really catchy and one of my recent favorites.  resistance comes down, steady, quick flat road.
  • everclear – everything to everyone (3:21) : running here, in and out of the saddle, so resistance should a little heavier than a normal flat road.
  • lana del rey – summertime sadness (remix) (3:35) : finishing with final interval – heavy climbing out of the saddle, with surges in the saddle
  • lorde – royals (3:10) : stretch, cool down
