The Cyclocross Workout Of The Day for Monday, 11.3.14. “Recover Hard”

Howdy folks,

From what I’ve been hearing, it sounds like a day of rest was well earned out on the race course(s) this weekend.

Listen to me on this one, though; don’t take the day completely off the bike.

Jump start your recovery with a…

Recovery Spin –

– Get on your bike. Roll out into the street – or into your living room if you’re on the turbo –  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.

As always, if you do the massage thing (and, really, you should if you can afford to…) this would be a good day to get in to see your therapist.

Drink a bunch of water, get some stretching in… recover hard, folks!

Doing these on the trainer?

Sweet… check out yesterday’s Superprestige race from Zondhoven while you chill on the bike.

I love this course. That monster descent? Holey-moley!

 

Enjoy!

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?
