Fire and Ice (Spinning Profile and Playlist)


Sorry that I have been M.I.A. as of late, but you all know how life gets in the way, and with the kids finishing up school and the end of year of activities I've been doing a bit of slacking on my hobbies.

But the good thing is that I've had taken the opportunity to put a few miles on my new bike and I've gotten back into running.  Now to be fair, the running is just a means to an end.  I don't like running; it hurts and I'm embarrassingly slow.

The hurt is the result of a stupid game I was playing during a going away party that involved me doing a split and since I'm no longer 24 years old and heavily into the martial arts, of course I tore a glute muscle; which has been a literal pain in my butt for nearly 2-1/2 years.  And as for being slow, let's just say that my body was built for something other than running.

Having said that, I'm determined to improve so I went ahead and invested in some Vibram Fivefinger running shoes to see how those worked for me in getting ready for the Warrior Dash and Tough Mudder events.  I have to say I'm impressed,  I didn't have any joint or muscle aches while running.  I'll get back with you in about 2 weeks as my routine continues.

So on to the profile.  I was having so much fun pulling the songs and profile together I didn't know what song to drop to stay within my normal 55 minute class time, so this has the bonus of being a bit longer.  And I included a new song by Joe Satriani called "Ice 9" so I simply called this ride "Fire and Ice"

Hope you all had a great holiday weekend, and until next time....
