The Workout Of The Day for Monday, 9.3.12. “Labor-a-tory”

Howdy folks,

It’s Labor Day for those of us in the USA –





(Sorry, couldn’t help myself. Please forgive the politics, now back to our regular scheduled program…)
In the Seattle area, where I’m at, the Cyclocross season begins today.

Holy cow.

That makes today’s workout pretty easy for some of you, eh?

Go Race!

Have fun, kick some butt. Come back with questions & things to work on, OK?

Not racing today, but kinda feeling like you should, or at least like you should do something pretty darn hard today?


Today you’re doing…

The Doppelganger (yup. Click that.)

Not quite up for something that hard? Need a day to relax before you head back to work? Heck, maybe  a little hungover today?

I feel ya…

Take it slow today.

Go for a nice, relaxing…

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.


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.

As soon as that happens, turn around, go home, eat, stretch, and put your legs up.


Happy holiday folks, Have fun!
