Start a Fire ๐Ÿ”ฅ 500

Inspiration:ย  New day, New Year, NEW DECADE…all start today!ย  Also today, reached #500 for playlist/ride profile posts here!ย  Let’s START A FIRE…everyday, every time we’re in the Cycle Studio.ย  The inspiring SoulCycle FIND IT! promo clip from 2017 always get’s me FIRED UP…I hope this first post, playlist and ride profile do the same for you.

I had my last class at the Mary Free Bed YMCA this morning, on the special NYD group ex schedule…a great time with many new and familiar faces (including a couple FTRI guest bloggers Beth & Randy!), another bittersweet moment for me.ย  One more “last class” at the Downtown DDH YMCA on Friday…exactly one week before the OPEN HOUSE of 2020…Lunar Cycle Studio!

Starting the year with a 60m 3 Stage Profile, each stage with HIIT and strong climbs…no upper body work jumps or rolling hills, but an optional Figure 8 modification.

Enjoy the Ride!

Sorry to start the new year on a sad note…

In the last weeks of 2019, two men I know (one mid-20s, the other mid-50’s) were found lifeless in their homes…exact details about their deaths are not known.

Checking up on your friends is cool!ย

      1. But the song doesn’t last 5m or 8m respectively. The idea would be to.continue into the next track? Sorry to bother u!.But I really love this profile and I correctly. Thanks!!!


      2. Sorry about the confusion…I just removed the references to time ๐Ÿ˜†…not really important to the profile anyway. Glad you like the playlist and profile! Have a great wknd ๐Ÿšด๐Ÿป๐ŸŽถ๐Ÿ˜…
