Virtual Reality 2

This is a Cycling pattern from www.turnstep.com. (pattern 16942)

I posted "Virtual Reality Ride" and got great feedback (it's my favorite ride). I had sinced added Virtual Reality 2 and 3 but never posted them. I'm finally getting to it!

Virtual Reality 2 Overview
Total CD time: 69 minutes. Goal: disassociate / tune in to music and imagination. Today you need is an imagination and a sense of adventure. While we are still doing safe road bike skills, we are going to disassociate from our bodies, cueing in to the music and our imaginations instead of how we feel. I'll give occasional intensity cues to keep us on track. Put on your virtual reality goggles. We're in a series of video games. It's an adventure. Enjoy the ride.

NOTE: I can no longer find the version of Misty Mountain Hop that is on this cd. I've been asked for it, but can't remember where I got it. The original (Led Zeppelin) version will work, but this version was a hip/hop version of it is really fun! The Sky High and Somewhere Over the Rainbow songs are aerobic versions of those songs made for aerobic cds.

For Those Who Want More Detail:

#1 Such Great Heights: WarmUp

Enough resistance to feel the road. Practice adding enough resistance to stand.
This is a different ride. Disassociate. Use imagination. You don't know where we're going next.
Video game. Have a sense of humor and imagination. Can't take it too seriously.
I will still give you some basic cues on intensity occasionally, but it is not our focus.
