The Cyclocross Workout Of The Day for Sunday, 8.3.13. “SundaySundaySuuuuuunday!”

Howdy folks,

Sunday, Sunday, Suuuuunday!

Are you ready to Rrrrrrrrrumble!?!

Oh, good.

Let’s get to it then, shall we?

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(er) today, but better to go kinda long and really damn hard.

Try to ride a bit over your head.

Either ride with a group of riders that are just slightly better than you – and ride defensively – or push the tempo at the front with a group that you’re comfortable in.

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


In short, if you aren’t racing today, go hard enough that when you’re done you feel like you did.

Have fun, ride hard, and remember: easy day tomorrow, leave it all on the road/trail today.

  1. Nice cat. But I like the muppets better.
