The Workout Of The Day for Monday, 11.12.12. “Rest Hard”

Howdy folks,

Well, if you’re like me, you had a pretty hard day at the office on Sunday, and you need to recover from it today.

(OK… check that… hopefully you didn’t hit any trees on Sunnday… that made for a long day…)

So, today?

Get right down to it, and rest.

Recover with every bit as much intention and intensity as you race.

Start with 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.


Try to get to bed early tonight. Maybe get a massage.

Whatever you do, all day long, whenever you can… get off your feet.

Never run when you can walk.

Never walk when you can stand still.

Never stand when you can sit.

Never sit when you can lie down.

Remember, you deserve a break today.

No creepy f-ing clown necessary.
