Superbowl Sunday Cycle Mix

Another year has flown by and again I haven’t been able to post as often as I’d like to but I am going to try and make a better effort this year.  My latest excuse for not posting is a mix of wedding planning, working, working out, and studying for the CMA exam.  I am still teaching spin every weekend so at some point will have to catch up on all of the new playlists I made last year that I haven’t shared with you yet.  This week’s spinning mix is dedicated to Superbowl Sunday… Go PATS.  This workout is set up to be an intense Race Day type workout as I expect you will need this before enjoying all of the festivities that go along with the Superbowl.


This pic is taken at one of my favorite spots in Jamestown, RI with a view of the Newport Bridge.  I don’t have any Superbowl related pics so figured I would share one of my favorite views this week instead.
