The Cyclocross Workout Of The Day for Monday, 9.23.13. “Feelings”

Howdy folks,

Well, so much for that.

Looks like I jinxed things with Saturday’s post.

Waaaaay too much carnage in Sunday’s races.

Man, I hate to see friends hospital bound.

Best wishes for a speedy recovery to everyone involved and concerned.


Hopefully ya’all weren’t part of the collar bone platoon this weekend and were, in fact, able to keep things rubber-side down…



Whichever way things turned out for you at the races, I have a feeling you’re feeling a bit beat up right about now.


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.

– 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.

  1. Well, we had cracked vertebrae in 3 places and a broken nose this weekend at my local race. Equipment failure so hard to avoid but dang…I myself was sidelined practicing illegal handoffs with french fries, a worthy undertaking if there ever was one.
