Shifting Gears

Last week's workouts were dominated by hills and sprints. Great for developing muscle and power but very hard on the body. This week is dedicated to steady-state high-aerobic work.

With the exception of one long hill in the middle of the workout, the first section of class this week will be tempo and the second will be at or near threshold. The entire class will focus on higher cadence with resistance set to achieve the desired heart rate.

For my personal goals, last week was a low volume high intensity week. This week shifts to a lower intensity but increased saddle time. After these next two weeks I will need a week of low intensity, low volume.

This week's new playlist:

Moby - Southside
INXS - Pretty Vegas
Smashing Pumpkins - Tarantula
Pearl Jam - Worldwide Suicide
Nine Inch Nails - Discipline
Paramore - That's What You Get
ACDC - Thunderstruck
Gravity Kills - Guilty
POD - Alive
Seether - Remedy
Velvet Revolver - She Builds Quick Machines
Edwin Collins - Never Met a Girl Like You
