The Cyclocross Workout Of The Day for Monday, 10.17.11. “R3”

Howdy folks,

Welcome to Monday, the first day of the rest of your week.

I hope you had fun racing yesterday, and you’re ready for a day of recovery. You’ve earned it!

If you couldn’t guess already, today it’s time for…

R3 –

Recover –

– 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.

Relax.

– 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. Lots of info up on the topic in previous posts.

Have fun,

M
