Wholistic Core/Spin Class Choreography released

for WF.com Members ONLY here is my choreography of what we did…you can mimic a similar class on your own, using it. note that in reverse direction (what else is new about ilg, right?) i hammered the students with 20+ minutes of wholistic core work in the style of HP Yoga® BEFORE spinning to pre-fatigue the core and THEN superimpose the 60-minute high intensity SPIN! this is old-school WF philosophy, and, trust me; it worked as well this morning as it did over 30 years ago!

Brotha’s y’ Sista’s!
Though it runs against my “America’s Outdoor Athlete*” reputation, spiritual lineage, and my inner tendencies to spin indoors (which, BTW, is precisely why God created nordic ski racing!), feeble ilg is attempting to hold down the fort for our most preciously sweet and huge-of-lung and fleet-of-foot Swede, Marisa Asplund, this Saturday morning at 8:15am for her amazing 90-minute spin/core workout at the Durango Rec Center.

A Mountain Yogi’s Version of a StairMaster Workout:   When the Sacred Snows Run Thin?  Run Up (and Down)…

ilg calls this posture; Apresthresholdhellasana. ilg reckons this is what the common man is afraid of…spewing Sacred Spit after 51 minutes of Threshold uphill running through snow…yes, feeble ilg missed breaking the 50-minute barrier up the 2,029′ walls of snow by 1 stinkin’ minute. aaaaargh!!! That’s okay…in failure, we learn more than through success. Next week? If it still hasn’t snowed? I already have a different route selection that just may save me those few seconds to break 50-minutes. Such goes the Warrior Mind.
