The Cyclocross Workout Of The Day for Thursday, 11.16.17. “25 or 6 to 4”

Howdy folks,

No BS today, on with the workout…


Five-By-One – 


(Why this video? Because Terry Kath was awesome. Am I gonna’ have to come up with a workout called the 25 or 6 to 4 just so I can use it?)

warm up well, then…

You’re going to do 3-5 sets of 1 minute efforts.

Hard efforts.

How hard? Hard enough that you can barely make it through the last effort of the set. The percentage of your one minute max that you can do will vary pretty tremendously from athlete to athlete, so it’s hard to give you a set number. Suffice to say that you’re trying to get as close to that max number as you can.

We’re going to do these again next week, and (probably) the week following. Be conservative, at least the first set. You’re going to get another shot at this.

2 minutes recovery between efforts, 5 -10 minutes between sets.

Go until you can’t hold the power level of the first set anymore, or until you’ve done (minimum) 3 sets.

Have fun,



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/few 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 largely 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.

This all adds up, and if the numbers don’t make sense, the edifice collapses.

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

It is deeply appreciated.

Want to get yourself a dose of that appreciation?

Thanks for the consideration!
