The Cyclocross Workout Of The Day for Monday, 9.29.14. “Blue Monday”

Howdy folks,

It’s Monday already?

I’m guessing you’re  pretty gassed after the weekend’s racing. I know I am!

Pretty much only one thing to do.

Go for 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.

If you can manage it, today would be a great day to get a massage, see your physio/chiro/acupuncturist/whatever.

Put as much thought & work into your recovery as you do into your training, and you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how much it pays off!

Enjoy!
