The #Cyclocross Workout Of The Day for Thursday, 12.6.18. “Speeding towards season’s end”

Howdy folks,

Speed work today. We’re going to do some…

Ten Second Max Sprints –

This is a pretty simple workout in concept, but harder to actually do than it appears at first blush. Short version…

– Warm up

20 minutes or so, making sure to include some short, hard efforts.

– Full-gas, all out sprint for ten seconds.

– Recover for 12 minutes.

– Full-gas, all out sprint for ten seconds.

– Recover for 12 minutes.

– Full-gas, all out sprint for ten seconds.

– Recover for 12 minutes.

– Full-gas, all out sprint for ten seconds.

– Recover for 12 minutes.

– Full-gas, all out sprint for ten seconds.

– Spin out your legs, recover for another 10 minutes or so, then go home. You’re done.

Wait… that’s it?
Yup. Five ten-second sprints.
That’s it.
Here’s the thing, though; these are legit, 100%, all you can do sprints.

Think “If I don’t win this sprint, someone I love is going to die” type sprints.

If this doesn’t sound hard to you, that just means you’ve never actually gone that hard before.
It isn’t something that most people – even bike racers – have actually done. They may think they have, but… nope.


Good luck…
M
