The Cyclocross Workout Of The Day for Monday, 8.11.14. “Wonders never cease”

Howdy folks,

I hope you enjoyed your weekend, and had some fun doing whatever it is that you found yourself doing.

I had a pretty great Sunday not riding my bike –

beach

 

…as, somehow, I was actually able to follow my own advice, and took a day off the bike yesterday.

Will wonders never cease.

Even though I didn’t ride yesterday, I’m still going to take it easy today. Frankly,  this body just isn’t used to hiking for a couple/few hours, and I have a feeling I’m going to be a little bit sore in a few hours.

So, I’m going to spin any lingering soreness out of my legs today by going for what is, in fact, today’s WOTD, a nice, relaxing…

 

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.

Relax.

Have fun!
