The Cyclocross Workout Of The Day for Monday, 12.7.15. “Of course there are vids…”

Howdy folks,

I Hope you had a great weekend, whatever you found yourself doing. If you were racing or training hard, you know what you’re doing today, right? You’re going for a …


Recovery Spin – 

– 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’re doing these on the trainer, same deal. Just spin. No hard efforts, just make the legs go around in circles in a small gear.

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

Spinning on the trainer today?

Here’s the vids from yesterday’s big euro races to keep you entertained…



If you didn’t ride hard this weekend, I’m guessing it was because you’re enjoying the early part of your off-season. Nice. That’s what I did this weekend!

Don’t get too used to sitting around relaxing, though. Off – season training starts soon.

Stay tuned…
