The Cyclocross Workout Of The Day for Monday, 11.24.14. “Not doubled. Damn.”

Howdy folks,

Well, I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty damn tired today.

Strange thing about having a crappy day on the bike is that when it happens in a race, sometimes it means you wind up spending more time slogging through the mud than just about everyone else… which was the story of my day, yesterday.

Wasn’t riding well, but just marginally better than all the folks who got doubled, so… bonus lap!


I’m betting that you too earned today’s…

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.


Hey! What about the vids from the races this weekend?

Well, there’s a pretty remarkable deficit of footage from Koksijde and Spa on the interwebs today, but there’s this…

…from yesterday.

That’s not much, though, so I started looking for the 1994 Koksijde World Championship – which is one of my favorite races – and go figure. Couldn’t find that either.

…but I did find this…

…which might be even better. What a great race.






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?
