Summertime Bash Interval

Memorial Day is the unofficial beginning of summer here in the States.  The weather is generally nice, and schools just about out and it's time to think about that summer vacation.  But Wait!  There's still time to shed a few more pounds before you head to the beach.  I suggest a little strength training (aka, weights) and follow that up with some cardio-interval work.

The weight training is up to you to figure out how you can and want to do that.

...but I'll help you out with the Interval stuff.

So you say you had a bunch of donuts this week at work?

Somebody came up to me after class this week and told me that he hated me because I had made him work so hard during class.  Then he admitted that a bunch of people had brought donuts to work this week and he had indulged, probably making his workout a bit tougher than usual.  Well, I say if you want to talk about donuts and Spinning, then you have to watch this:

Yes, I know he's leaning on the handlebars in hand position 3, but you have to admit that this fellow is really spinning up a storm.  

Now on to something a bit more serious.  This weeks ride is an Interval and it's a tribute to Adam Yauch (also known as "MCA" from the Beastie Boys) that passed away last Friday after a 3 year battle with cancer.

Enjoy the ride, make puddles of sweat, and don't overlook the warning signs of cancer.
