The Workout Of The Day for Monday, 11.21.11. – “Sheesh.”

Howdy folks,

Monday again! Man, I can’t believe the weekend is over already… holy cow…

Well, I went out to the Seattle area races yesterday, and I saw some great riding (note:saw. I can’t ride well enough to get out of my own way right now! 🙂 )

You know what else I saw?

Some pretty darn bad rider positioning.


There are a bunch of folks out there at the races with bike setups that are holding ’em back pretty significantly.

I haven’t spent any time on here talking about bike positioning, so I probably can’t hold it against folks too much, but sheesh…

If you’re in doubt about your positioning, spend a few bucks and go visit a reputable bike fitter… it’s worth it!

Interested in a few posts on the topic of bike fit for ‘Cross? Let me know in the “comments” section.

Anywho, onwards!

It is Monday. You should be ready for a…

1 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.

– Just get out on the road 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.



have fun!
