The Cyclocross Workout Of The Day for Monday, 10.3.16. “Recovery plug”

Howdy folks,

Happy Monday. I hope the racing went well for all this past weekend.

Congratulations to Bart for the fine podium performance over in Belgium! Always nice to see friends of the blog doing well in the races. Let us know how things have been going for you!

Before I hit you with today’s workout, just a quick plug; tomorrow evening, I’ll be teaming up with one of my Source Endurance colleagues to present a webinar on transitioning your training from road (or mtb!) to cyclocross. It’s free, and if you have the time please log in and check it out. You can sign up here.



After a busy weekend of racing, you probably know what’s on tap for today, right? Yup. Settle in 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 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 relaxation as you can. Eat, stretch, and put your legs up. Get a massage if possible.

Hey, cool… Superprestige coverage from Sunday is finally up on line…






What’s that you say? You’d kinda’ like to have a cycling coach help figure this stuff out for you? Check out…
