The #Cyclocross Workout Of The Day for Monday, 8.19.13. “Ozzified”

Howdy folks,

Well, it’s Monday already, and wow… the season is right around the corner!

Before we get started with the WOTD, a quick word to the wise; Now is the time to make sure you’ve got all your gear figured out for the upcoming season.

If you’re running tubulars, get your hands on the tires you want asap. They won’t be in stock for long.

Even more important?

If you’re gluing up your race tires, stock up on glue. The last couple/few years, halfway through Cross season, it’s been impossible to get tubular glue, even at the distributor level.

Don’t get stuck wanting.

Obviously this goes for bikes, too. It’s crazy, but most of the manufacturers still can’t seem to have their bikes available in time for the season to start, and they run out before the season is half over.




Enough of that, though. On with the training.

I’m guessing that you’re pretty darn beat from a hard weekend of training.

You know what that means, right?

Time 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!
