The workout of The Day for Friday, 8.17.12. – “Whitesnake.”
Thank god it’s Friday…
…anyways, on with the posting…
It’s been a long week, and we’re going to ride pretty hard this weekend, so today?
Take it Slow and Easy -
Go for a 1-2 Hour Moderate Ride –
This isn’t a recovery ride. We want you to relax a bit today, but it’s important that you don’t get your body thinking it’s time to shut things down.
You’re going to go just a bit harder than that.
Put a little bit of muscle into the pedals, but not so much that you ever feel like you’re going hard. Or hard-ish.
Moderate means just that.
Not hard, not easy… right in the middle. Easy enough that you could hold a conversation with the guy on the bike next to you, but hard enough that the conversation better be damn interesting if you’re going to.
Have some fun.
I mean, you’re listening to Whitesnake – How could you not?
Hey… some folks have been asking me about stretching for cycling/cyclocross, and as I was working on a long post on the topic, I came across this blog post. Check it out, really good stuff.
