The Cyclocross Workout Of The Day for Saturday, 12.17.16. “How do I phrase this…”

Howdy folks,

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


Here’s the plan for today:

Do something race-like.



Kind of.

Short, but race like.

If your race day at Nationals is 60 minutes, today you should endeavor to do a race-like effort (on the cross bike, on cross-race like terrain… you know, race-like) of approximately half that duration, at equal to or greater output.

Honestly? The hell with “equal to race pace.”

Harder than race pace.

Half as long as a race, but as hard or harder than what you would do in an actual race.

Try for harder than a race.

Hmmm… how can I phrase this simply?

Go really damn hard for half as long as you typically race.

Pretty simple, eh?

Go to it.


(of course, if you’ve actually got racing in your area – like you live in Texas – go do that.)


Have fun!
