The Cyclocross Workout Of The Day for Monday, 10.19.15. “What a weekend!”

Howdy folks,

Monday again!

Some great racing went down this weekend. Kaitie Antonneau second in a World Cup?


How about the battle for second in the men’s race?

The Moto GP race on Saturday? Holy cow! Pretty darn sure I’ve never seen a better race of any sort, period.

…and then there were the local races. From what I saw up here in Seattle, and read on the interwebs, those were pretty epic as well!

So what is one to do after an action-packed weekend like that?

Go for a Recovery Spin, of course!

– Get on your bike. Roll out into the street – or into your living room if you’re on the turbo watching the vid – and just spin around for an hour. Or more. Or less. Whatever it takes.

– 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 easily and aimlessly. At a certain point, your legs will start to loosen up.

– When that happens, turn around and go home.

–   If you can, follow up with as much relaxation as you can. Eat, stretch, and put your legs up. Get a massage if possible.





What’s that you say? You’d kinda’ like to have a cycling coach of your very own? Check out…
