I had been crushing on SLT for a long time before I signed up for my first class. I don’t know what took so long.  I think my hesitancy was driven by the price tag. At $40 a class, SLT costs a few more buckaroos than the already pretty pricey classes I attend regularly.

Despite that, it’s still competitive to nab a spot. I had to sign up a few weeks in advance to go to the Flatiron location.

Last Saturday I rode my bike from my apartment on the West Side, through Central Park and then all the way down Park Avenue to the Brooklyn Bridge. And back.

How was I able to do that? Because I am a biking goddess! And because the NYC DOT closes Park Avenue to car traffic from 7am to 1pm the first three Saturdays in August in a festival called Summer Streets.

Around Christmas I bought a 5-class pack to Epic Hybrid Training on Amazon Local. My ankle was still pretty bad, but at $10 a class with six months to use it, it seemed worth it. Matt bought one too. It sounded like a nice thing to do together. (Spoiler alert: we’ve only gone together once.)

So what is Epic Hybrid Training? It’s a studio with two NY locations that’s set up to prepare students to kick ass at Spartan Races. (You know those races where warrior-like humans crawl under barbed wire and through mud?)

Not this kind of Spartan:

My best bud Natalie lives in San Francisco. This is very inconvenient for hanging out. But when she does grace the East Coast (or when I visit her out West) we easily fall back into old routines.

It’s been nearly two months since my last post.

Cycling 22 miles to Coney Island was pretty much a mic drop as far as this blog and my fitness life are concerned so I’m okay with the dramatic hiatus.

I am certain that questions of my whereabouts crowded web forums in similar style to chatter about Tupac’s disappearance. That is unless you follow me on Instagram. From my millennial-esque oversharing, you know exactly where I was. (#ButWhereisTupacREALLY?)
