Happy New Year!
Let's kick off a fabulous 2012 indoor season with ZENDURANCE - our latest Audio PROfile from Master Instructor Jim Karanas!
The difference between "just riding" and training is that, when training, you recognize that every workout has a purpose. This is easy to forget when coaching an endurance class. Many riders and fitness enthusiasts look forward to this time of year as a time when we can enjoy lower intensity — more relaxed workouts without the stress of high intensity. However, there is much more to an endurance class than "just riding". Like any other workout, an endurance ride can serve a specific purpose but, if done incorrectly, will be of little training value.
Jim and I recorded two versions of this Audio PROfile. This one is the shorter/condensed version that we kept to 20 minutes. Look for the expanded version later this week where Jim goes into more detail about how you can bring a more "Zen like" experience to your class.
The title of this Audio PROfile is based on the book Jim references - Zendurance: A Spiritual Fitness Guide for Endurance Athletes
ZENDURANCE Spotify Playlist and in Deezer.
Here's a 90 minute version playlist that I used today following this PROfile.

I am not sure everybody has Spotify ?
I do not and would love to see the 90minutes playlist.
Not much use to us in Canada as we can’t use Spotify. Alas.
excellent as usual and great to start our base building.
one question…as ive always read and heard that endurance training is best at 90:00 to reap the benefits from it., that anything much less in time doesn’t have a huge impact. Your thoughts?
I agree with Pascal regarding seeing the playlist. I tried to join Spotify but I do not Facebook nor do I want to -is there a way to join w/o Facebooking?
Kathryn I’m not aware of any requirement that you have to use Facebook with Spotify – although it is an option. Pascal isn’t in the USA and Spotify isn’t available where he lives. I really like using Spotify but one complaint is that there isn’t a way to quickly print out a playlist like there is in iTunes – I will try to get up soon.
John I will try again, but when I clicked on the “to join membership” it asked for a Facebook Account.
John: I am not sure what I am doing wrong, but I just tried to register for Spotify again when a pop-up siad “to register for Spotify, you must log into your Facebook account”. Any ideas?
I looked into this and found that Spotify has changed. They are now requiring new users to use Facebook to create an account.
In the past you could create a user in Spotify and for those people who did, can continue to use Spotify without connecting it to FB.

Also reading the comments shows that there are a lot of people who aren’t happy with the change.
