The #Cyclocross Workout Of The Day for Saturday, 8.17.13. “Spent?”

Howdy folks,

Weekend time! You made it through another work-week, and the Cyclocross season is another calendar page closer to beginning.


So what should you do for training today?

Well, heck… many of you probably have road or MTB races on the schedule.

If you do, Go Race!

Racing tomorrow?


Check out what we did yesterday. If you didn’t do it then, and you’re racing on Sunday? Well, there you go. Have at it!

Not racing today or tomorrow?

Well, one of the two days, you might just want to go for a…

Hard Group Ride…

 3, 4, 5 hours… whatever is just a little bit of a stretch for you.

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.

The idea is to ride just outside your comfort zone all day.

Riding shorter? Ramp it up a bit.

Push your limits.

Try not to pay to much attention to your power meter or heart rate monitor, just ride hard.

Too much?
Feeling a bit spent today?



How about a…

1.5 – 2 Hour Moderate Ride –

Get on your bike.

Go ride for 2 hours.

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.

Sounds like fun, eh?
