The Cyclocross Workout Of The Day for Monday, 9.16.13. “Tigger”

Howdy folks,

Well, it’s Monday again.

Gonna’ throw a couple of options out at you today, ’cause a fair few number of people raced on Saturday… but pretty certianly not all of you..

If you didn’t race on Saturday, or if you did and also rode pretty hard yesterday, today you should 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.

– 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.

– Just get out on the road 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.

Race on Saturday?

Enjoy a recovery day yesterday?

Still feeling gassed today?

Heck, take the day off.

Do something other than ride today, for a change.

(an especially good idea if you’re racing again this coming weekend!)

Race on Saturday?

Recovery day yesterday?

Rarin’ to go today?

You might just want to get a jump on the week by doing some 2×20’s today.

Go get ’em, Tiger!
