Happy Friday, friends! Did everyone have a nice Memorial Day Weekend? What’d ya get up to?
A few things before we get started. Feeling stressed? I enjoyed this post from The Blissful Mind on how to calm anxious thoughts. On a similar topic, my pal Ali Feller wrote an article for Well & Good that’s well worth a read: “The (very controllable) reason you might be more stressed than you were three years ago.”
Now, on to last week’s workouts:
Three years ago, at age 29, I could not ride a bike. Since then I’ve competed in a Duathlon (Run-Bike-Run), biked in foreign countries (Iceland, Colombia), and logged miles on Manhattan’s busy streets.
I wouldn’t believe it was possible so I wanted to share the story of my journey.
Here’s the story of how I learned to ride a bike:
Athleisure Mag invited me to try IMAXShift a new spin studio in Dumbo. I was not paid to write this post, but I was invited to attend this event and class for free.
IMAXShift is a hip new spin studio in Dumbo. They have a unique take on the traditional 45-minute cycling class. The bikes are set up stadium-style, facing a giant, Imax screen.
I’m pretty excited to share my duathlon experience, which I’ve been referring to in my head as “2Chainz,” you’ll see why soon.
