The Workout Of The Day for Monday, 11.29.10 – “Celebration”

Howdy folks,

Well, for many of you it’s over. Congrats.

Take it easy today. Go for a spin if you feel like it.

If not?

Well… don’t.

Don’t do anything you don’t feel absolutely compelled to do training-wise for a couple of weeks.

Rest, recover, decompress.

No physical work for a while… but we’re going to have some mental work for you coming up soon, so stay tuned.

If your season is continuing, then so are the workouts! That means you get an actual workout today, and it’s –

Recovery Spin Monday!

Get on your bike. Roll out into the street, and just spin around for an hour.

Really small gear, no hard efforts – heck, no medium effort.


You’re looking to move your legs around in circles, almost like there is no chain on the bike.

The idea is to get your body moving, flush the systems out, and speed your recovery.

When you do your recovery ride -if you have the time- just get out and spin aimlessly.

At a certain point, your legs suddenly feel better. Sometimes this takes 1/2 an hour, sometimes it takes 2 hours.

After a while, when you get used to having the recovery ride as part of your routine, you know it when you feel it.

As soon as that happens, turn around, go home, eat, stretch, and put your legs up.

Have fun!
