Phew!

What a week!

We’ve been busy, busy, busy around here. Between having company in town, fighting a cold, and some family drama, I’m not sure where the last week and a half went. Did I mention the tiny man is crawling like a champ and pulling himself up. Yep. We’ve got a mover and a shaker on our hands! Can’t wait to see what month seven has in store. Oy!

I’ve got a couple new playlists to share, but since I’m not on my game, those will have to wait till next week. I’m playing around with the idea of an oldies vs. hip hop playlist. Thoughts? Song suggestions? Any hip hop I use must have a clean version. Hit me up in the comments section with your thoughts/suggestions!

I do have a few new songs that are currently on repeat. Since it’s Friday, have a little dance party in your office or home. Go on. I won’t tell anyone!

The Saturday Special

Saturday class is one of my favorite classes to teach. It’s later in the morning, so people are a bit more chipper, it’s an hour long, and it’s usually a larger class. Larger classes just have a different energy. I love it!

This past Saturday, I had put together a new ride. A little bit of everything– sprints, hills, flats, jumps. Some new songs and some old.

Yes, “Classic” was my 14 year old girl choice. I don’t know…it just makes me smile. My friend posted about the Kongos song on FaceBook and when I checked it out, I thought it would be perfect for a standing climb. Have you heard it? I really like it!

I ended the class with “Shout”. My friend who takes my class says she has a love/hate relationship with that song in class. I guess that means I am doing something right.

I’m also loving “Fever” by The Black Keys. I used this as a medium flat road in the saddle, but I think you could do jumps or a climb with it too.

The other new song I used was “Dominos” by Classixx. The hubster found this song. Apparently, he had Shazamed this song on two separate occasions. It’s catchy, no? This was the other flat road on my playlist.

Speaking of Shazam…it’s one of the ways I remind myself of songs I’d like to play in class. If I’m driving along and I hear a song (even if I know who sings it), I Shazam it. Then when I go to create my class, I look at all my Shazam tags to give me inspiration.

So, that was Saturday on the bike.

After teaching, I went home and our little fam headed out to the International Biscuit Fest. Lots of people and lots of tasty biscuits!!! I was glad that the ride had burned over 500 calories, because I’m sure I ate most of those back with  my 5 biscuit tastings. So worth it!

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend!
