The #Cyclocross Workout Of The Day for Monday, 8.12.13. ‘Tired. There’s a very, very fine line…”

Howdy folks,



I sure am.

I’m so pooped I can’t get to sleep.

That’s one of my biggest “you’re starting to over-do it, back things down, damnit!” Signs.

What are yours?

Do you even know?

If you don’t, you should try and figure them out.

Maybe the fact that you’re being a jerk to everyone you love should be telling you something, eh?

Like maybe instead of training hard again today, you should just go for a…

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.

Or, go to work.

Or School.

Or whatever.

Whatever, whichever, try to take it easy today, ok?

Have fun!
