Howdy folks, So, hey… here we are, it’s the week before Nationals. This is the end of the road for most (the few) of you left. Congrats, you made it! In honor of that, no workout of the day today. Sorta. Instead, I’m going to drop an outline of the week before your big race […]

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 […]

Howdy folks, One week until Nationals. Go time. Short and sweet today. We’re doing…   Sventervals –    Sometimes a picture (or a video) is worth a thousand words. Just like in the video. Really darn short – 10 seconds max – full gas hill sprints, ideally on pretty technical terrain. 5 reps per set, and notice […]

Oh crap, man… I just realized that I didn’t hit the “publish” button for today’s workout this morning, when I got hit with an absolute deluge of day-job hellishness. I am super sorry about that. Especially this close to Nationals, I hate to leave people in the lurch like that. Well, here’s what was supposed […]

Howdy folks, Monday means… Recovery Spin… Just like it sounds… – Get on your bike. Roll out into the street – or into your living room if you’re going to do this on the turbo – and just spin around for an hour. Or more. Or less. Whatever it takes. – Really small gear, no […]

Howdy folks, If you aren’t racing today, the assumption is that you’re racing tomorrow, so that means… Can Openers –  Here’s the drill:     (Ouch, sorry!)   – Hop on your bike, and head out to some non-technical (but ideally not paved) terrain. It’s good to do this on dirt if you can, but […]

Howdy folks, Well, it’s Friday. What to do, what to do… The weekend schedule for people is, of course, all over the map, and the difference between today’s ideal program if you’re racing tomorrow vs Sunday vs Tomorrow and  Sunday is… big. So, well… what are your plans this weekend? Racing on Sunday, but not tomorrow? Take […]

Howdy folks, Lots of racing this weekend! Operating under the assumption that you’re going to be going full gas both Saturday and Sunday, today you’re taking a day off. Race on Saturday… Rest day today. Enjoy! M

Howdy folks, It’s Wednesday, so you should be doing something at least a wee bit skills-involved today. If you have a local CX workout – like Wednesday Night Worlds out at the Jerry Baker Memorial Velodrome (this is our last night of the season, c’mon out!) you should head on out and do some riding there. […]
