The Cyclocross Workout Of The Day for Sunday, 11.27.16. “Sleeping in”

 

 

 

Howdy folks,

Well… holy cow. So this is what not-racing on a Sunday feels like, eh? I’d forgotten!

Yes, I slept in today. Felt pretty darn nice. Unfortunately, it means that this is going up too darn late to do anybody much good. It’s definitely not going to be any use at all for people who are racing today, so let’s talk about something different.

Let’s assume you didn’t race today.

If you didn’t race because your season is over, you should be thinking about things other than cycling right now. Take some time away from the bike.

If you can’t force yourself away from the bike, at least take a break from structured training.

Relax. Chill. Sleep in. It’ll be good for you. More on that in new posts soon…

If you’re not done with the season, and just didn’t happen to have a race today, I’d suggest that you should (have) do (done) one of two things.

 1 – easy spin or day off. Good chance to get some rest and recovery in before making the push through the rest of the season.

 2 – Mileage!!

However the day goes (has gone!) for you, I hope it was a good one!

Hey! Check out the stuff I’m selling…

 

 

 

Thanks for following along.

As you’ve probably noticed, there’s been a “begging for money” bit attached to the beginning of this page for a couple of weeks now.

I’d like to thank everyone who has chipped in this season – and the past couple of seasons – when I’ve asked you to. It’s made a difference.

How much of a difference?

Well, let’s put it this way; the small donations from you folks have kept the lights on on this page.

There’s a certain (small) amount of money that has to come out of my pocket to pay for this page, and there’s a certain (larger) amount of money that, as a self-employed person, I need to write off based on the time spent on writing, posting, and – yes – giving training advice away that other people charge for.

So, once again, thanks to those who have contributed.

As much as I hate to say it, though, the contributions this season are way down compared to the last two years, and I don’t know if I can keep this going unless more people contribute.

Yeah. That sucks. I hate to have to write it, but I just looked at my bank balance, and the bills sitting on my desk, and the paying work that I’m putting off while I sit here writing this, and… well… crap.

So, that’s where we’re at.

I don’t know what the future of the CXWOTD looks like. Maybe there’s a paywall, maybe I try to pursue some corporate sponsorship, maybe I just bag the whole thing, maybe I scale things down and post less often… heck, maybe I just decide that I don’t care what the numbers say, and keep going anyways.

I dunno.

Nothing is going to happen in the short term. At minimum, I’m going to play things out through the end of this season before making any decisions.

Just wanted to let ya’all know what was what.

So, hey… if you feel like you’ve gotten anything of value out of this blog, and you’d like to see it continue, 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?

Simply click on the graphic below, and PayPal will be glad to make it happen.
