The #Cyclocross Workout Of The Day for Monday, 8.26.13. “Damnit”

Howdy folks,

So…. that was a tough weekend, eh?

Well, at least if you did the workout that were on here it was.

Know what?

Things aren’t really going to get any easier.

Racing is just about to begin, and while that means that things are going to start  getting a whole lot more fun, it also means that things are going to get a whole bunch more intense as well.

We like it that way, right?

As things get more and more intense, we need to make damn sure that we’re doing what it takes to give our bodies a chance to recover after the hard efforts we subject them to day after day.

Get enough sleep. (Damnit)

Eat well. (Damnit)

Drink enough water. (Damnit)

Go for a…

Recovery Spin (Damnit)

– 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.

Spin.

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.

Relax.

Or at least try to.

Have fun!
