The last class(es) part deux

So this is it…the playlist from my last class which was two weeks ago!

last class

Like, I mentioned before, the last class I taught at the Y was hoppin’! It was nice to go out there with a bang and I think my Monday morning class really liked this playlist too. 12 songs, 45 minutes…it was good times.

Also, if you notice, Scott Melker struck again. This time with a little Hall & Oats aka Ballin’ Oats mash up. If you don’t love you some Hall & Oats, I just don’t know if we can be friends.

This class was more of a power class with sprinting done at a heavier resistance. This was the gist of the class:

  1.  warmup- nice & easy does it
  2. run up in 2nd with a few jumps
  3. flat Road
  4. up to 3rd on a medium hill, sit and surge on chorus
  5. heavy hill, witching between 1st and 3rd
  6. recover for 60 seconds then sprints- 50 on/30 off (repeat)
  7. jumps on a hill
  8. start on medium hill, small turns on “push the button”, stand in 3rd once hill in saddle gets too heavy
  9. flat road
  10. last working song- up in 3rd on a medium hill, sit and sprint (repeat 3x)
  11. Cooldown
  12. Strech

Have you heard Roving Gambler? If not, it is a remake by Norah Jones & Billie Joe Armstrong. Quite the collaboration, right?

Love. The Everly Brothers also have a version, which is pretty great. It looks like the song first came out in 1925, so there are a lot of versions out there. I thought this was a perfect song for a cooldown.

Well, another Monday morning is here. I woke up early this morning. Yay for pregnancy insomnia! It’s still really weird not to be teaching class. I miss it. I know I’ll be back at it soon enough, but still…

Also, just an FYI, pregnancy insomnia sucks! I know it is preparing me for all the sleep I’ll be missing out on soon enough, but really?!?! Cut a pregnant lady some breaks. Is that too much to ask from good ole Mother Nature? Don’t answer that. I’d like to keep a glimmer of hope in my tired eyes.
