The Workout Of The Day for Friday, 7.19.13. “Sore feets.”

Howdy folks,

Well, hey… did you run yesterday?

I’ll admit it, I didn’t. I went to the local Thursday night crit and got some racing in (actually, as I write this I’ve just finished packing up to head over there. Fingers crossed I’m not jinxing anything somehow by writing this in the past tense. After all the carnage in the local road races this season, none of us can use anything that even remotely resembles bad luck. So cross those rabbit tails, or whatever.)


I will be doing some running soon, but not yesterday, and not today.

Today, we take it easy.

I raced last night.

Some of you just might have done some running yesterday.

Still more of you might have taken the advice from my post on Wednesday, and you’re taking it easy this week.

Heck, maybe you’re riding hard this weekend, and you just need to get yourself set for that.

All good. All cues to take it slow today and go for a…

We’re going to back things down a notch.

Today we’re doing a…

One to Two Hour Moderate Ride –

Get on your bike.

Go ride for an hour or two.

No hard efforts, but do throw in a couple of moderate ones. By moderate, I mean just that. You can sprint for the town line, but you should be laughing while you do it.

You’re not doing a recovery spin, so you need to put a little bit of gas into the pedals… just don’t go out and kill yourself.

Check out the view, smell the flowers, just do it while you’re putting a little bit of effort into the pedals.

1 notch above a recovery ride.

Make sense?

Have fun!



PS – if you’re looking for something a bit more intense to do today and you came here hoping for ideas, check out the search box lower down on this page, or simply keep scrolling down. You’ll find something. If you’re new here, it might not be obvious, but there are several hundred workouts up here, going back a couple/few years.

I’ve got absolutely no idea how it happened, but somehow this thing just turned into a monster. Hopefully all that scribbling yields something worthwhile for ‘ya!
