Not sure where your are, but multiple days above 50°F has us all giddy with excitement here in the Frozen North! Then again it does signal the end of my Sunday Performance classes - last one is this weekend.
If it doesn't rain there's a good chance it will be very lightly attended, with all my normal's out enjoying the sunshine. For those who do attend (I get a bunch of non-bikers) I thought a lighthearted class would be in order.
Many of my class playlists begin with a "root" song/track that I build the rest of the playlist around. Looking for inspiration, I cued up Chris Hawthorn's Top Indoor Cycling Songs for 2013 list and there was exactly what I was looking for, right at the top of her list:
- Counting Stars by One Republic: This song is so upbeat and catchy, that I could use it in every class. It has a great beat and can be used seated or standing, or in combination. Some other great songs from this album that made my top list: What You Wanted and I Lived. This is by far my favorite album that came out this year.
I'm thinking that this 5 minute remix could make an interesting warmup.
If you enjoy playing cover's in your class - this acoustic version of Counting Stars is awesome.
