The Cyclocross Workout Of The Day for Monday, 10.20.14. “Unproductivity”

Howdy folks,


That was a tiring weekend!

My guess is there are going to be some pretty unproductive cross racers sleep walking their way through various jobs across the land today.

At some point, after you finally get the work thing (or school thing, or whatever thing…) done with today, take some time to check out yesterday’s World Cup race, the first one of the season  –




– as usual, lots of great stuff to learn from in this vid!

The Women’s race, held just before the one in the vid, just so happened to be Katie – F-ing – Compton’s 100th UCI win, and I would post that up as well if I could find the damn vid on Youtube!

Check back later, will get it up as soon as I can.

…oh, hey… how about a workout?

Pretty darn sure you probably need to regroup from the weekend today, and 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.






Hey there…

Thanks for following my blog!

This thing started off as a lark, and over the years that I’ve been doing it, has become a little bit of a monster.

It takes a fair bit of time – and a wee bit of money – to keep this thing rolling, and as you may have noticed, I’ve recently started asking for folks to chip in a bit if they feel like what they’re getting her is worth something to them.

Honestly, it’s not like I’m trying to get rich off this here thing… or really 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?
