The Cyclocross Workout Of The Day for Saturday, 12.26.15. “Day after math”

Howdy folks,

I hope you all had (are having) a happy holiday, filled with all kinds of whatever brand of jollity you happen to prefer.

We’re inside the two weeks to go mark for Nationals.

Your workouts at this point should – in general – be short, sharp, and focused on rounding your form into shape for the event. You ain’t going to get any stronger at this point, but you can easily overcook things.

If you’re ever in doubt, default to less. Less time, less work… but more speed.

Focus on speed and quickness.

Today, we’re going to do some really short climbing intervals.

We’re going to do…

 

Sventervals – 

 

Sometimes a picture (or a video) is worth a thousand words.

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. These are super short, and super intense, but even though you’re giving them everything you’ve got, the idea is to do them on terrain that self-limits what you can do.

Can’t get up the hill anymore?

You’re done.

Have fun,

M

 

 

Hey there…

Thanks for following my blog!

This thing started off as a lark, but over time it has become a little bit of a monster. There are over 1000 workouts on here! How the hell did that happen?!

It takes a fair bit of time – and a wee bit of money – to keep this thing rolling, and it’s suddenly the time of the year when the bills come due. I need to ante up if I want to keep the lights on for the page.

Honestly, I’m not trying to get rich off this thing… or even make any money from it at all.

It’d just make my life a fair bit easier if I didn’t lose money doing this!

So, hey… if you feel like you’ve gotten anything of value out of this blog, please do me a favor – and yes, it’s a favor, and I will be truly thankful for it – and send a buck or two (or five, or whatever…) my way.

How do you do that?
