Happy Easter & This Week!

Happy Easter
Happy Easter, peeps! If you're celebrating the holiday, I hope the bunny brought you plenty of Gu packs, Luma bars, Power Bites, and coconut water cartons...maybe even a little chocolate (which you can burn off later this week!).

During class on Friday I made mention of a broadcast I heard by Glenn Beck several years ago. Personally, I think this guy's a bit of an ass, but he hit it out of the park on this. Regardless of your feelings toward Beck, I encourage you to take a listen to the unique way he's married the Easter story (actually the Good Friday story) with Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon. Although it's a bit long at 17 minutes, I think it's the best telling I've ever heard (including those countless Sunday morning sermons as a kid).

The "20 Minute Threshold Test"
We have another 20 minute threshold test coming up this Friday at LA Fitness. What is your threshold and why is it important to know? As we start training more for the outdoor riding season you'll want to know what level of exertion you should be putting out on a daily basis to help you achieve your goals. Is your goal distance riding, speed, or just weight loss? Each of these goals requires a different level of exertion over different periods of time. By understanding where your threshold is you'll be able to customize your training plan. Check my blog a few weeks back for more info on testing.

Get a Heart Rate Monitor -If you don't have one, go get one! This is the best investment you can make for the type of riding we do in class and they are relatively cheap. Check some of my recommendations by clicking on the "Gear I Use" tab at the top of the site. The monitor is key for threshold testing!
