The workout of The Day for Friday, 8.17.12. – “Whitesnake.”

Howdy folks,

Thank god it’s Friday…

My apologies in advance if this post winds up being a little bit fuzzy… as I alluded to yesterday, I got my cage rattled pretty good. I’m not exactly on top of my game today!

…anyways, on with the posting…

It’s been a long week, and we’re going to ride pretty hard this weekend, so today?

Take it Slow and Easy –

Go for a 1-2 Hour Moderate Ride

This isn’t a recovery ride. We want you to relax a bit today, but it’s important that you don’t get your body thinking it’s time to shut things down.

You’re going to go just a bit harder than that.

Put a little bit of muscle into the pedals, but not so much that you ever feel like you’re going hard. Or hard-ish.

Moderate means just that.

Not hard, not easy… right in the middle. Easy enough that you could hold a conversation with the guy on the bike next to you, but hard enough that the conversation better be damn interesting if you’re going to.

Have some fun.

I mean, you’re listening to Whitesnake – How could you not?

Hey… some folks have been asking me about stretching for cycling/cyclocross, and as I was working on a long post on the topic, I came across this blog post. Check it out, really good stuff.
