The #Cyclocross Workout Of The Day for Sunday, 7.28.13. “Movin’ right along…”

Howdy folks,

It’s Sunday, and that means that the workout for many of you is pretty obvious (well, for the road race crew anyways…)

Option #1 for today is –

Race Your Ass Off!

Whatever local racing is on tap for today, do it.

Take full advantage of the few remaining road and MTB races, and get some hard efforts in.

Workout option #2?

Hard Group Ride –


Get out there and kick some A** on the local roadie ride, or on the trails with your buddies.

Push the pace if and when you can, try and go hard – harder than usual – and see how you recover from some stiff efforts on a course or in a group you know pretty well.

Duration? 3 hours or so. OK to go long today, but better to go kinda long and really damn hard.

You want to finish up the ride  tired, sore, and needing to rest a bit tomorrow.

In other words, if you aren’t racing today, put enough into your ride that when you’re done, you feel like you raced.

Have fun, ride hard, and guess what? You’ve got an rest day coming tomorrow. Leave it all out on the road/trail today…


If you rode hard yesterday, though?

Maybe take it a little easy today, and just go out and cruise for a while.

Get some fun, unstructured miles in and enjoy your time on the bike.

You’re going to be doing a bunch of hard riding over the next couple of weeks… so go on out there, and enjoy another fine summer day. They’re a limited commodity.
