I want you to know how to dance, fight and go all the way! (Spinning Profile & Playlist)

"The report of my death was an exaggeration."~Mark Twain, 1897

Yes it's been way too long since my last post, but I haven't stopped Spinning®.  Life has just taken me on a detour for a bit with my new job.  I've continued to coach weekly and I've created a few new playlists but the time requirements have been such that I haven't been able to play around with my blogger hobby.  I think I'll be a little more available going forward as it is a hobby which helps me cope with stress and I surely need it.

Last week I did upgrade my iPad to the latest OS and many thanks to Apple, "You screwed me again!"  This post will have my playlist but if you're one of the folks that download my profile to import it into your ClassBuilder app, I'm afraid we're out of luck.  With the latest build of the OS, Apple has closed the door that allowed
i-Funbox to transfer these files.

Several new songs in this ride, and I have to say I had a lot of fun leading this ride and so did my participants as they told me after class on Friday. Enjoy!

Keep It Movin' (Spinning­­® Profile & Playlists)

You're either Moving or your Not.  We all get in those funks where you don't want to do
anything, you've lost your motivation, you've become bored, whatever.  What's worse is then you justify yourself, 'You deserve a break', 'You'll work twice as hard tomorrow', 'Yesterday's workout was enough'.  Again I say, Whatever.
You never regret the workout you did.

Unplugged (Spinning Profile & Playlist)

Another cycling coach friend of mine had a class awhile back at her studio where she played the more edgy music that she wouldn't normally.

I find myself, for reasons unknown to me, with my classes being cancelled today and next Friday.  Apparently under the guise of holiday time, whatever.  I've been home about a week and have cabin fever already.

Bah...Humbug. (Spinning Profile & Playlist)

No. Not Really.

It's just so expected that you're going to do a Holiday's Playlist.  You along with the other 5 cycling instructors.  So this year I decided to NOT put together a Christmas ride.

This year my gift to my class was simply a butt kickin' ride.

No One to Blame... (Spinning­™ Profile & Playlist)

In my new role with my company I've been with for the last 16 years, I've been doing a lot of reading and thinking about goal setting.  In fact, quota setting was ALL I did for the first 2 weeks on the job.  Christmas is right around the corner and soon we'll start to see all the NYR's (New Year Resolutioners) at the gym but this isn't about a resolution. You see, a resolution is simply a decision to do something, it in itself doesn't have the teeth to bring achieve your goal.

And there you have it...Goal.  Many will say the biggest mistake in setting goals, is in not actually setting them.  And while that is certainly a critical step, it's only the strategy portion of your resolution, it doesn't help you with your execution.  The goal only tells you when you arrived at your destination, it doesn't tell you how to get there.
