Inspiration: This may be your MOST WANTED ride & playlist for April! So much great, current music here…and a BURNER 60-minute ride profile too. I recently discovered an artist that I love for her motivational, get fired-up music, RAYELLE! Like many good finds…Rayelle’s GET READY is from a TV commercial…this one from the current Samsung Galaxy S10 commercial that runs seemingly non-stop these days. If missed it, or just don’t watch TV, here it is. This profile is loaded with climbs, jumps, sprints, attacks, and a 5-MINUTE FTP POWER TEST (I will be doing these OPTIONAL Power Tests as part of my scheduled ICG Power Training classes the first week of the month. Finally, don’t miss the inspirational Warm-up and lesser-known (2003) but great cool-down track.
Here’s to MARCH (..and YOU) going out like a LION…and to your best APRIL ever, ENJOY THE RIDE!
