Best way to start your day? At the gym. This is something I rarely do, but I had to get it in early today because I’m on the road until late this afternoon for work. My mood has seriously never been better, which is saying a lot. I spent the hour on the spin bike slowly climbing (heavy resistance) to my own slow(ish) music. Does anyone else do this? Only recently have I been loving the slow songs at the gym, but now I think I’m addicted.
This playlist is good for either long endurance rides or a serious sob session, you choose.

And BTW! Yesterday when I was cycling (alone in the cycle room), these three dudes came in and began to practice their sword fighting right in front of me. They actually had real swords… What?!
