This is my second day of blogging and my site has been up for about 24 hours.  I found it hard to sleep last night as ideas kept rambling through my mind.  What would you like to see on this site?  I'd love to get some feedback and find out what the interest is out there and what it will take to keep you coming back for more.  

Today, I say, keep it rolling!  I taught a high energy ride in my Spin class this morning titled "Roll Away" with about 30 riders.  We monitored our heart rates in the Interval Energy Zone taking them up to 92% and then slowly bringing them back down, training ourselves to recover quickly.  In the Interval Energy Zone, also known in a Spin class as an all-terrain ride, we emphasize speed, tempo, timing and rhythm.  Today we experienced just that with some rolling hills, a few runs with resistance and sprints.  We succeeded with our Intervals and our recovery times, burning over 550 calories today.  Training in the Interval Energy Zone allows us the mental ability to use our breath, our pedal stroke, and our resistance to assist in a quick recovery from our work efforts, further building our aerobic efficiency and strengthening our heart.  Kudos to my riders today for a great class full of energy and spunk.  The playlist today consisted of Animal (Neon Trees), Crank It Up (Ashley Tidsdale), Grenade (Bruno Mars), Take My Hand (Simple Plan), Born This Way (Lady GaGa), OMG (Usher), Waiting for the End (Linkin Park), Impossible (Amberlin), Closer to the Edge (30 Seconds to Mars), Chop & Change (The Black Keys), Give Me a Meltdown (Rob Thomas), Roll Away Your Stone (Mumford & Sons), and We Used to Wait (The Arcade Fire).  Meet me back on Thursday morning to experience your abilities in the Strength Zone.  Eyes on your path, keep yourself rolling and your wheels constantly turning.....and just breathe!

I've added a new page to the site titled NRG Zones.  Check it out for prudent information regarding the fitness energy zones and use them to set new goals for your fitness needs.  Come back tomorrow for updated info and information on what to expect on Thursday!  Please send me your comments, ideas and/or requests and stay connected!  Until next time......
