Today’s profile is heavily influenced by a ride I took at Florida MANIA. It was called “Ultimate Time Trial” and it was presented by Schwinn Cycling Master Trainer Keli Roberts. Keli is an avid road racer and had a great deal of personal detail to share with us about racing and time trialing. It was very inspiring to be taught the technique of racing by a rider who has won road races. Not only that, but Keli is an absolutely charming lady with great coaching ability and a constant smile. Even at the high point of the race, she was glowing and cheering us on. Quite motivating.
This is a Spinning Profile for a ride that totals 80 minutes on the bike plus 10 minutes of stretching for a 90 minute profile. I got my students up extra early one morning for this ride that went over really well. Because the ride was a first for them and for me as an instructor, I kept it very simple and mostly motivational. Also, I didn’t want them to fall asleep, so half-way through, the profile changes from a EEZ to a SEZ. Therefore, “Endurance” in the title really only means “able to endure the bike for a long time.”
Here are the playlist and profile. After the profile, I have included a series of motivational cues to get you through the ride.
We’re back with another Spinning Playlist and profile! Summer has wound down and as fall approaches, I am encouraging my riders to make a fresh start and look for ways to get something new with each and every ride. My early morning riders have been riding consistently for over a year, so we are going to work toward a Race Day for the next month.
