The Workout of The day for Monday, Halloween 2011 – “Good ‘ole…”

Howdy folks,

Happy Halloween!


I’m going to keep things short today so you can get some fun in on this quasi-holiday we find ourselves having. But remember, tomorrow is Tuesday, if you wind up in a position like pumpkin above is in, you’re gonna regret it tomorrow!

Enough warning nonsense, on with the workout. Today you’re doing…

Your basic good-ole Recovery Ride.

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. 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.

Don’t forget to do some core work today, if you can’t force yourself to stuff it into your schedule later in the week!
