The Cyclocross Workout Of The Day for Monday, 10.3.11. – Ouch.

Howdy folks,

Well, thankfully *that* weekend is over!

I had a rough go of it in yesterday’s race, and I’m guessing that there might be a few other folks busy getting down on themselves after a disappointing weekend.

You know what?

Everyone has days like that.


Check out the footage at 11:10.

Niels F-ing Albert.

It’s worth bearing in mind; even Niels slides ass-backwards down the hill every once in a while.

So, today? Today, you relax a bit and go for a nice, easy…

1-2 Hour Recovery Spin

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

– 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.


Remember, this is a good day to get some core work in if you aren’t totally spent. There’s lots of info on the topic in previous posts.

Enjoy the easy day!

  1. Sounds good to me. A less brutal way to relax from a brutal hour.

    Nice work crosssport.
