The Cyclocross Workout Of The Day for Monday, 10.13.14. “BOOM! crap.”


Howdy folks,

I hope your racing this past weekend went better than mine! I managed to cram a nice 2k run into the middle of my race… will tend to drag one a bit of a ways down the results sheet.

Insult to injury, Sealant “repair” to the injured tire that precipitated said foot-bound excursion lasted just long enough to lull me into bringing the wheel into the house, at which point…

…in the middle of the living room, of course.


But hey, did you watch the Race in Euro Land on Sunday?

You didn’t count Sven out, did you? I hope not, ’cause boy did he put on a show…


Maybe you can watch that vid today while you sit on the trainer doing your…


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!





So, hey…

I’m going to do something I don’t feel super great about, and that’s… well…

I’m going to beg ya’all for a little bit of your hard-earned money.

Here’s the thing; it’s right about the time of year where I need to renew all the behind the scenes stuff that keeps this blog up and running, and that takes some dollars to do.

In fact, it looks like the sheer volume of posting on here is going to mandate a move up to the next level of service/cost. That, or I’m going to have to start taking down old posts – there are close to a thousand of them – and I don’t want to do that.

Honestly, it’s not like I’m trying to get rich off this here thing… or even make any money from it at all.

It’d just make my life a fair bit easier if I didn’t lose quite as much money doing this as I currently do.

So, hey… if you feel like you’ve gotten anything of value out of this blog, please do me a favor – and yes, it’s a favor, and I will be truly thankful for it – and send a buck or two (or five, or whatever…) my way.

How do you do that?
