The Cyclocross Workout Of The Day for Monday, 12.12.16. “Yeah, it’s Monday”

Howdy folks,

There’s a s**tload of new stuff up on the for sale page, including a garage’s worth from ZMD. Check it out.


So, it’s Monday.

At this point, you’re either dead-dog tired from a hard weekend of racing and/or training, or you’re done for the season.

If it’s the latter option, congrats! You made your way through another one!

Do today’s workout, then take some time away from the bike. We’ll talk more about “why” in the coming days, but for right now, suffice to say that time off the bike is good for you, and you should get some of that good stuff for yourself.

Still racing?

Sweet! I’m jealous.

Equally sweet is the relief your legs will feel from today’s…

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.

Video footage from the weekend’s racing? You betcha!
