Weds Spin Playlist.

Last night I subbed a spin class…it was a lot of fun and mostly involved the class laughing at me while I danced around the room. Ahh, I love being an instructor.

Then I went home and thankfully I live about 5 minutes away from this particular gym (I don’t normally teach at this one). I pulled into the parking garage and these green babies fell out. Yes, those would be the members’ bike passes that I accidentally took home. Oops.

So I had to turn right back around and bring them back. Yes, I thought about keeping them for a split second. I mean, they could just print out new ones, right? Right. Anyway.

This morning I was back at my apartment gym for a run. This is a recovery week (after a stellar high mileage week last week, pat on the back) so I’m focusing more on quality over quantity. I did a few speed intervals, and then hopped off for some squats, planks and upper body work.

  1. Every time I read your Wednesday post, I am itching to get back to spin. But, I am going to wait until it’s cold and snowy since I’m still loving being able to bike outside right now 🙂
    Happy Wednesday! !

  2. Reading this makes me miss spin! One of my best friends was an instructor when we lived overseas. That looks like a fantastic playlist. Some of my favorite spinning songs from the past have been Call on Me – Eric Prydz (this must have been a remix to bring the tempo up), Fat Bottomed Girls – Queen, and Beat It – Michael Jackson.

  3. I think that’s one of the reasons I can’t wait to become an instructor – you aren’t a military drill sergeant you’re a coach, a team leader, someone who inspires everyone and makes them want to come back for more every week. Aka dancing around the room sometimes to stir up a little passion. I love it!
