Didn’t happen to you!

I saw a bunch of people crashing over barriers at the races this weekend, so hey – work on those this week, ok?

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.

Relax, if you can. If not, head off to work, school, or whatever the daily drag is for you.

Have fun! 🙂

On another topic entirely,  I will be in Las Vegas for the Interbike tradeshow most of this week. I apologize in advance for any missed posts. I will do my best to keep ’em coming, but sometimes things just get a little too crazy and I can’t find the time to get a post up in time. I will try, I promise!

On a positive note, I will also look to post up some pics of cool cross goodies I see at the show, so look for the details here over the next couple of days.

Thanks and goodnight,
