The Cyclocross Workout Of The Day for Monday, 8.25.14. “Recovery beverage”

Howdy folks,

Well, that was another taxing weekend, eh?

Phew. I’m pooped, how about you?

You can probably guess what’s on the agenda for today, eh?

It ain’t a heck of a lot, but it is pretty damn important. 

Seriously, rest and recovery are every bit as important as all the hard training you put in, and for most of the folks I coach one on one, getting them to take their recovery as seriously as their training winds up being the hardest part of the job.

So do things right today, ok?

Go for a nice…

Recovery Spin (Damnit)

Wait… recovery spin, not beverage…

Sigh…

– 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.

When you do your recovery ride – if you have the time – just get out 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.

Or at least try to.

Have fun!
