As I mentioned, I came down with the beginning of a cold on Sunday. The timing was less than ideal because I was set to sub a spin class Monday night and then teach my usual class Tuesday night. I couldn’t really get out of either.
The Monday night class was OK and I felt alright for most of it. Towards the end my head clouded up a bit and I couldn’t really hear myself speaking, but apparently everyone else could.
Tuesday morning I woke up tired and blah and decided to start the day off working from home. Starting the day turned into taking the whole day at home and I think it was the right decision. That said, I still had to teach in the evening.
My Tuesday night class is at a corporate gym. They only have 12 bikes and they’ve never all been filled, but it’s a great little group. It’s a smaller room and the sound system is a Bose docking station. There’s no mic. I was nervous about the lack of a mic since projecting your voice with a cold isn’t always easy. Thankfully it was OK and I felt pretty good for the whole class. After the class, not so much, but it is what it is.
I put together new playlists for both rides. While Monday’s playlist was good, I actually thought Tuesday’s was better. And since I talk a lot more about running, I feel like this playlist would definitely transition well to a running playlist.
So here you go:
I started the ride with an honorary Glenn Frey song. Last week I was actually called out for not including a Bowie song, so I needed to make things right.
It was a fun playlist, all upbeat. The time really flew.
If you’re looking to throw some speed intervals in, I’d recommend Perfect, I Found You, and My House (which I ended up LOVING for a heavy climb).
My running this week has been non-existent because of the cold. I did hop on the treadmill on Monday before class but only managed to eek out .5. Yuck!
I brought my gym clothes to work, so if I’m feeling OK, I’m going to give it a try. Tomorrow is hill repeats with the group and I really really want to be OK for that, so fingers crossed!
Hope everyone is having a good week!!!
