On The Move: SPINdurance 2019.1 458

Inspiration:  Winter has returned to Grand Rapids, MI this weekend…a few inches of snow, sub-zero temps and talk about even colder wind chills!  It’s a great day to hibernate with a new Spotify SPINlist for an upcoming Endurance Ride.  Several classic rock tracks from Styx, The Doobie Brothers, The Police, Fleetwood Mac and Steely Dan…and just as many tracks from the past 5-6 years…and two current favorites for a great recovery at the end.

I updated the Zone goal for this ride…emphasis on Green / Zone 3, with a good amount in Zone 5, followed by Yellow, Blue and White:

Zone 1 (White): 5%…Zone 2 (Blue): 10%…Zone 3 (Green): 40%…Zone 4 (Yellow): 25%…Zone 5 (Red, Ring of Fire, Tunnel of Fire): 20%

Genre:  Classic Rock / Country, EDM, Pop, Rock
