The #Cyclocross Workout Of The Day for Monday, 11.5.18. “Monday stuff”



Howdy folks,

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend of racing. I was actually able to make my way out to the races this weekend, and have some thoughts after watching a fair bit of racing that I hope to be able to share with you later in the week. Stay tuned.

Today being the Monday following a weekend of racing, we are of course going for a nice, relaxing…


Recovery Spin…

Just like it sounds…

– 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.


It’s getting harder and harder to find free race vid content, without going back to the footage of years past, so while I will continue to post up Monday cross videos, the contemporary stuff is mostly going to look like this…



But hey, there’s always previous year’s content!
