The Cyclocross Workout Of The Day for Sunday, 8.28.11. – “Burning Man”

Howdy folks,

Well, yikes… this went up awfully late! Sorry about that!

It’s up now, though… so no whining, OK? It’s not like you’re paying for this! 🙂

So, on with the workout…

If you actually managed to plow your way through yesterday’s workout, odds are you’re pretty darn gassed. Take that into account today, OK? Don’t take a chance on blowing your whole season by overtraining and burning out before things even get started!

If you’re feeling tired, take it Slow and Easy today –

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?

If you aren’t hurting today, odds are it’s because you didn’t do the workout yesterday, so hey… give that  a try today, OK?

Or, heck… go race. But well, that was one of the options for yesterday anyways, so I’m starting to get redundant.
