The Cyclocross Workout Of The Day for Wednesday, 7.19.17 “Just pull it out”

Howdy folks,

Day 3 of week one. And it just happens to be a Wednesday.

If you’ve followed along with us in previous years, you know that Wednesday is the day we work on our bike skills.

Wait, what? Bike skills? In July?

Hell yes. Time to get going on this.

OK, let’s be clear. I mean “get going” pretty damn literally here. I’m not telling you to go out there and do the kind of intense skills workout we do mid-season. What I am suggesting is that you pull your cross bike out of the closet, and go ride it a bit.

Just ride the damn thing. Heck, if you’re like me you probably haven’t even looked at your damn cross bike in 7 months or so.

To be completely honest here, if you’re actually like me you don’t even have a cross bike right now. Ouch.

(Insert plug for non-existent bike sponsor here. Seriously… bike manufacturers? This space could be yours!)

But let’s assume you do have a bike.

Pull it out of the closet.

Safety check it. Make sure the tires are glued on solidly, and that nothing is going to fall apart after you swing a leg over.

Go ride it.

Easy, relaxed riding. Just spin around the neighborhood for an hour or so. Maybe go ride some fun local trails if that’s a convenient possibility for you.

Don’t drill it, don’t kill it, just go have some easy fun.

No dismount practice, no specific drills, just relax, enjoy.

We rode pretty damn hard yesterday, so this is doing double-duty for us, a “get back on the CX bike” cruise and a recovery spin.

So keep that in mind, ok?
