The Cyclocross Workout Of The Day for Thursday, 9.17.15. “Sven-Vegas”

Howdy folks,

I’m writing to you from Las Vegas, the land of slow internet. Consensus seems to be that if you’re online, you ain’t gambling, so they do their damndest to make it near-impossible to access the interwebs at anything higher than wagon-train speeds. Yeee-haw!

This makes the blog posting thing a wee bit difficult. But because I love you, here we go…

If you did yesterday’s workout, my guess is you’re going to want to back things down a bit today. If you happen to be a pro – or unemployed (and let’s face it, there’s a fine line there…) – you might want to log some steady miles today, 3 or 4 hours just cruising.

If you’re a pro…

For the rest of us?

Depending on how tired you are, anything from a recovery spin to a shorter version of the pro day would be a good choice today.

Not feeling tired?

Get some running in today, or perhaps some…

Sventervals – 

Just like in the video.

Really darn short – 10 seconds max – full gas hill sprints, ideally on pretty technical terrain.

5 sets of 5 for today (you’ll build up to more) and notice how hard Sven is breathing after these?

That’s the idea.

Hit it hard. Really hard.

Have fun,
