The Cyclocross Workout Of The Day for Monday, 8.18.14. “Recover”

Howdy folks,


If you’re like me, you’re pretty darn gassed today.

Hard training takes it out of ya’, eh?

When ‘ya train hard, ‘ya know what also has to happen?

Rest and recovery.

Real rest and real recovery.

You need to take this part of your training as seriously as the fun working hard on the bike part. 

So, start today with 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.


Have fun!
