Day Three: Nicole's 30 min Orchestral Ride 10.12.16
Nicole was a Peloton instructor before I was a Pelo-addict, so this was my first class with her. I know when I first signed on in May, people talked about how she was out due to injury? Anyway, she seems to have ridden her pony into the great Peloton-horizon. Wishing her the best.
Inspirational moment of this ride for me: Nicole explained that this was a mixture of orchestra and jazz. Teamwork and Collaboration. She then invited us to bring the spirit of both into the ride. Now, I'm not a musician. And often as a rider I use the music to fuel my effort, but I never really think about the musicians and the effort that THEY are putting into the music (or were when it was recorded). This 30 seconds of cognition during the warm-up inspired me... I was going to ride like a violinist's bow in flight of the bumble bee, baby (did I mention I'm not a musician?)
Um, at least as much as I can considering I'm lifting weights after this.
