It’s a while since I posted a new workout and especially long time since I posted a new spin mix. To be honest, while spin has been my “go to” workout in past pregnancies, I’ve found it really hard this time around. Sure, I’ve taken a few classes here and there, and I’ll still do a few solo spin workouts, but it’s been challenging keeping my heart rate down.
I think part of this challenge was because I’m stubborn. I was having a hard time accepting that I needed to drop rpms and gears — and stop doing sprints. Previously, I just went off of what felt challenging to my body – this time I was focusing on metrics and numbers. So, I’ve recently discovered that numbers aren’t always a good thing. I’ve since switched my mindset. I’m still looking at those numbers, but I’m not worrying about what they say. And when I TRY to do something (like sprints) and it gets my heart rate sky high? I modify it. Duh.
So long story short – I’m back to spin! I actually went to my first class in weeks today and it hurt so good. In other news, I pigged out during my work Thanksgiving potluck today. Mmmm. I am certainly thankful for good food.
Here’s the latest spin mix playlist…
Quirky and explicit – as always (would you expect anything else?)
