Ride The Zone

Noon Stretch

The Mechanical Bull of Bikes

"I think that the Real Ryders at Ride the Zone are very much like the mechanical bull at Mason Dixon. You have to hold on tight, but you need to go with the ride and not fight it." — sassletics82, last night, 11:27 P.M.

One Hundred Pushups on a Real Ryder

You know what?!? Marion is not kidding when she says RTZ's mission is to bring us to a new and uncomfortable place as soon as we're getting the knack of the tricks we've been working on. The latest: push ups while building a climb out of the saddle, hands diamond shaped with elbows pointed outwards.

No. More. Snow.

Snow is beautiful. I like watching it fall. But I'm over it...I'm going to be working all over the city today and dread being out in the mess.

Ride!!!

I sweat out some unexpected toxins at Team Zone this morning. A quick drink on Tuesday turned into a night out. Spinning is so fantastic for sweating out the poison.

Food Log:
pre workout: toast with 1% cottage cheese
post workout: coconut water, clementine, Greek yogurt with flaxseed and chopped berries

Marion madness and climbing

Anytime Marion is out of town for the weekend, she comes back double time on Monday!

Workout:

Marion: Pushing the Zone: 60 minute ride at RTZ

 

Learning how to climb was fun. the climbing(indoors) was easy but following all the rules and directions was a lot after a full day. I would definitely go back on a Saturday and do it again.

He's so vain he probably thinks this post is about him

So an ex-boyfriend has developed a liking for RTZ. We dated in 2003 for about a year;it's been a long while and we bump into one another at different social things so I can't say it's awkward. However, i'm not so keen on seeing him at spin. I guess I feel like, he's kind of invading my turf which is silly but honest.

Beautiful Winter Day in the City

I loved walking around the city today. The sky was blue and the air felt refreshing, I noticed joggers in short sleeves and kids actually walking comfortably because they weren't bundled up head to toe. Very nice.
