The Workout Of The Day for Monday, 12.19.11. – “R.”

Howdy folks!

Did you get some good, hard riding in this weekend?

Sweet… I’m jealous! :)

If you finished up your Cross racing in the last two weeks or so, you should still be off the bike, or, if you *must* ride, please take it easy.

Avoid the temptation to jump into the roadie cutting-contest pre-season insanity. Go out and spin by yourself, easy-like.

Better yet, stay off the bike a little bit longer, and give some thought to putting in some gym time cross-training.

If you’re still playing out the string, and you’ve got some racing coming up today, you’re doing 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,
