The Cyclocross Workout Of The Day for Tuesday, 8.6.11. “The Day After.”

Howdy folks,

I hope you had an enjoyable holiday, and if you raced yesterday you had a good time… we’ll talk a little bit more about yesterday’s racing tomorrow…

Today? Well, today, your workout is dependent on yesterday.

OK… I’m confusing myself, here. Yesterday, today, tomorrow… wtf? it’s all blending together… that’s why we’re calling today’s workout…

The Day After – 

Let’s simplify…

Did you race on Labor day?

Great… today, you’re taking it easy and going for a…

One Hour Recovery Spin.

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.

Spin. 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.

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

…or, you know, go to work.

You might also get a little bit of core work in today.

No race for you yesterday? Did you get a little relaxin’ in instead?


You know what that means, right? Yup. It’s…

Two By Twenty Tuesday!

Pick one and have at it…

Have fun!
