The Cyclocross Workout Of The Day for Monday, 8.10.15. – “Treat Yo Self”

Howdy folks,


As promised, we’re going to take it easy today, and give our bodies (and minds…) a chance to recover from the hard efforts of the weekend.

We aren’t going to take the day completely off, though.


Today we’re going for 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.

Trust me on this one, folks; you will recover better, faster and more fully if you make it a point to spin your legs out on your rest day rather than just doing nothing at all.

If you do the massage thing (and, really, you should if you can afford to…) this would be a good day to get that done as well.

Drink a bunch of water, get some stretching in… Treat yo self!







Hey! Do me a solid and check out…



Coaching, training… all that good stuff.
