The Workout Of The Day for Friday, 11.26.10 – “Aftermath”

Howdy folks,

I hope you all had a wonderful thanksgiving!

I will keep this pretty brief, as I am sure you’re all busy as can be today, either catching up on work after the day off, exercising your constitutional right to gratuitous expenditure on Black Friday, or as is the case with many of my friends, you are kinda/sorta working both sides by facilitating commerce at a break-neck pace today.

Whatever it is you are doing, you should also try to get on the bike.

Your workout today is –

AfterMath –

As you are no doubt aware, it’s Friday. That usually means that you’re either taking it pretty easy today and going for a Moderate Ride, or you’re doing Can Openers if you have a race tomorrow.

No change at all if you’re racing tomorrow. Get on out there and do those Can Openers –

Not Racing tomorrow?

What you do today is entirely dependent on what you did yesterday. If you’re feeling pretty normal today, and/or if you got out and did some riding yesterday, the usual 1-2 Hour Moderate Ride is a pretty safe bet –

If you took the holiday completely off, or if you’re feeling like you need to burn off a few calories to get your head back in the game, you can go a little bit harder today.

Here’s a couple of options for you…

– Go for that Moderate Ride, but…

– in the middle of it do one 20 minute effort, as if you were doing 1/2 of a Classic 2×20.

D0 three 5-minute efforts evenly spaced throughout the ride.

– Do one full-gas sprint every 15 minutes

– Do some Spin-Ups –

Whichever of these makes the most sense to you today, that’s what you’re doing.

Have fun!
