Happy St. Patty’s Day!
I will be celebrating with my annual viewing of the beer baron episodes of the Simpsons (unlike my college days, which were somewhat a…different…story.)
All holidays require a special playlist WITH a visual aid, and last night’s class was no different! This lineup was very well received–after a warmup and a hill, we took the shamrock loop x 5. The total time for this loop is ~25 minutes, so adding a hill at the end rounded out a 1 hour class.
- Don’t Trust Me 3OH!3
- Time of our Lives Ne-yo and Pitbull
- Ordinary Day Great Big Sea
- You Shook Me All Night Long ACDC
- Blank Space Taylor Swift
Shamrock Loop: 1 min seated hill (7 out of 10 difficulty) 1 min standing burst of speed 1 min hard climb (9 out of 10 difficulty) 30 second transition 1 minute seated sprint (5 out of 10), 1 min recovery
All this 5 times–25 minutes of looping fun! All this while these awesome songs are playing:
- Run Runaway Great Big Sea
- Take Me to Church Karma Remix
- Whiskey in the Jar Metallica
- Johnny, I Hardly Knew You Dropkick Murphys
- Old Black Rum Great Big Sea
- Drunken Lullabies Flogging Molly
- Wild Night Van Morrison
- Zombie The Cranberries
- Stuck in a Moment U2
- Carry On FUN
- Lucky Me Great Big Sea
It was fun to break out of the norm, and the class seemed to love it.
I’ve been really pushing it on the work/bridal alterations front, so my legs were pretty trashed after this class and my favorite part was coming home to hang out with my favorite red head.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
