The Cyclocross Workout Of The Day for Thursday, 8.7.14. “Chill, my A**”

Howdy folks!

If you’ve been playing along, we’re just a couple of days into training, and we’ve already hit it pretty darn hard.

You know what?

Today is a good day to throttle down just a bit.

If  ‘ya hit it hard every day, all year long, you can be pretty damn sure you won’t be able to give it your best when things get tough in the dog days of cross season.

So, if you want to turn the gas up this weekend & hit it hard at one of the few remaining summer races, or even if you’re “just” going to be working your ass off…

…training, today is all about the chill.

Heck, if you’re racing on Saturday – or if you’re feeling a little bit tired – maybe take today off entirely.

Like, don’t ride at all.

How crazy is that, eh?


Not a bad idea though!

If you do feel compelled to ride today, take it a little bit easy.

Go for a…

1.5 – 2 Hour Moderate Ride –

Get on your bike.

Go ride for 2 hours.

No hard efforts, but do throw in a couple of moderate ones. By moderate, I mean just that. You can sprint for the town line, but you should be laughing while you do it.

You’re not doing a recovery spin, so you need to put a little bit of gas into the pedals… just don’t go out and kill yourself.

Check out the view, smell the flowers, just do it while you’re putting a little bit of effort into the pedals.

1 notch above a recovery ride.

Have Fun!
