Me at Soul, loving the music, living the words. (Photo courtesy of SoulCycle)
Monday is notably the most dreaded day of the week for many people. It's back to the grind, back to school and usually back to that perpetual "Monday I'll start my diet" talk. However, I have a little secret up my sleeve that I'd like to share with you all. I always take a Monday evening spin class with my favorite instructor Rique Uresti at SoulCycle. His class always pushes me a lot harder than I would have wanted to work out—especially for a Monday. But then that's why I love it. This class starts my week off on the right foot, with the right attitude about exercising and being healthy.
Since you all can't be riding alongside with me, I wanted to share one of my favorite playlists from the man himself, which I use all week while training for my upcoming marathon. Thanks Rique!
