I haven’t had a chance to do all of the latest Les Mills releases other than BodyPump and RPM (and a sneak peek at BodyAttack) but so far, so good.
I did RPM 54 on Tuesday morning and it’s probably my favourite of the last few RPM releases. The music is fun for the first half of the release (I’m loving “San Francisco”), then ventures into some weird territory during the interval track. Check out this song:
A lot of RPM instructors and participants have been complaining about how dreadful this song is, but I didn’t hate it that much. Sure, it’s not the kind of song I’d jam to on my drive to work or anything but for 7 minutes of intense intervals? Why not?
Nothing really stands out in terms of choreography, except for the power climb track. There are only two blocks of work but they are much longer than usual. Overall, a challenging release (my legs were jello when I hopped off my bike) but fun enough that you don’t notice. Definitely a good way to pre-emptively burn off the decadence that would later ensue on Tuesday evening.
In other news (well, it’s not really news), I made a cool fritatta last night:
It’s a mix of brown rice, sesame oil, sesame seeds, peppers, soy sauce and eggs. For anyone who’s ever had bibimbap (a Korean dish of fried egg, vegetables and rice served in a stone bowl), this tasted really similar, especially since the rice got all brown and crispy at the bottom like it does in the hot pot. Yum!
I’m looking forward to the weekend – I have plans to see a couple of girlfriends I haven’t seen in awhile on Saturday and Sunday so should be a nice, relaxing weekend.
Anything fun planned for the weekend?
