The Cyclocross Workout Of The Day for Tuesday, 1.5.15. “Week-ness”


Howdy folks,

Well, here it is… National’s week.

Hopefully you aren’t stuck in bed sick as a dog, as it seems so many are. Blecch.

What you do for workouts this week is pretty darn dependent on when you’re racing, so hey… how about some options?

(Fair warning… I give myself license to contradict the following schedule with newer postings later on in the week.)

To be fair, I probably should have posted this up in the middle of last week, but hey; last week I was the one in the hospital, so I plead extenuating circumstances!

Here we go…

  One Week Before Race – 

Warmup Race, Race simulation outdoors, or The Doppelganger.

6 days before race:
