The Cyclocross Workout Of The Day for Monday, 12.16.13. “Barry”

Howdy folks,

Well, it’s Monday.

For many of you, that’s it… the season is now officially over.

Nicely done. You made it through another year.

That doesn’t mean your work is over, though. Soon, we’ll chat about things you can do in the off-season to set yourself up for success next year… but right now?

Enjoy some time off the bike.

Starting tomorrow.

Today, 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.

Tomorrow you’re off the bike.

Heck, if your season is over, you’re going to hang the bike up for a while (more on that soon, promise…) but trust me; you should spin your legs out today, you’ll be glad you did.
