The Cyclocross Workout Of The Day for Monday, 12.15.14. “Walk it off, Jim!”

Howdy folks,

Well, you made it through another weekend! Congrats! I hope the racing went well for all those who did so, and that all else had themselves a lovely weekend doing whatever it was that they did.

If those things that done got did just happened to involve the aforementioned racing, or – geezus – yesterday’s horror show of a workout, I’m pretty sure that you’ll need a bit of a break today.

So, pull your trainer up in front of the ol’ computer, cue up this vid of Saturday’s Euro racing…


(had to set the vid to start at Jim Aernouts’ barrier mishap. Ouch. OUCH!!)


…and enjoy a nice, relaxing…



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.
