This morning I pushed it to the limits… I slept until 5:06… oops! And was out the door in 10 minutes to get to the gym for spin class. Thankfully, I had done my work ahead of time to prepare for class! I led class to this workout, from a fellow blogger The Dancing Runner:
Working up to level 8 resistance, double time it out of the saddle at chorus.
Active recovery/jumps w/ light resistance
Keep resistance on, working all the way up a level 9 hill
Flat road then working back up to level 8. Accelerate at the chorus
Jumps working btwn level 6-8
Accelerations- 15 seconds on/15 seconds off. Level 7 resistance
Heaviest hill of the day…level 10/11 if you have it in you!
Now, when I asked my class to give me an 11 on that last hill, they all burst into big grins and shook their heads at me… like asking for 110% at 5:30am is crazy or something :)…
Cheers to a new week my friends! It’s my birthday week! I love absolutely everything about birthdays! And, I’ve officially started the countdown to the Paris Marathon 2014, which I’ve been planning to run for 4 years to celebrate my milestone birthday next year 🙂 I mean, the fact that the Paris Marathon is held around my birthday every year, well, it’s clearly a sign that I was meant to run it! After living in southern France about 10 years ago, I’ve been dying to go back! I can’t wait!!!
