The Cyclocross Workout Of The Day for Monday. 11.6.17. “Ohhei, how about a workout with your vids?”

 

 

Howdy folks,

Well, it’s Monday. I know why most of you are here, so vids first!

This weekend was the European Championships, and the women had a humdinger of a race…

 

 

Definitely watch that race first, so that you’ll have some normal human perspective when you watch the top guys float over some seriously difficult terrain. There’s some pretty bonkers riding going on here…

 

…and yeah, this is getting to be a bit like Formula 1, where there’s some great racing going on… it just isn’t happening at the front of the race. Great battle for third, though!

…and can I just one more time mention that whole “If you aspire to be world class, learn to hop the planks, damnit!” thing one more time?

 

Oh, there’s a workout today too. It’s 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.

 

Enjoy!

Hi there…

Thanks for following my blog!

This thing started off as a lark, and over the years that I’ve been doing it, has become a little bit of a monster.

It takes a fair bit of time – and a wee bit of money – to keep this thing rolling, and it’s the time of the season where I’ve got to pay the bills to keep this thing going.

I’m not trying to get rich off this thing… or really even make any money from it at all.

It’d just make my life a fair bit easier if I didn’t lose money doing this!

So, hey… if you feel like you’ve gotten anything of value out of this blog, 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.
