The Workout of the Day for Monday, 10.21.12. “Spin won out”

Howdy folks,


What a weekend! That was probably the best set of performances by US riders at a World Cup ever, and here on this side of the pond, people were riding hard & fast as well.

Special congratulations to CrossSports athletes Zach, Natalie & Jeff… great riding, ya’all!

ANYways, after a weekend like that, it’s time to kick back, relax, and spin the legs out a bit. Personally, I’m going to be planted on the trainer tomorrow watching this…

…while I do my…

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! :)
