A local LEGEND I know actually said this with a straight face:
"Loam is good training for cyclocross, yes? Haven't touched the cross bike since April, can't recall doing an interval set since last winter, don't even know where my bike is, but hopefully flogging mtb's up big terrain and tons of hard grovelling up/down granite in the Sierra Nevada has done something good..... And 2 days rest after a hard month of PT and getting after it from injury is enough rest, eh? #unusualtrainingtactics #cx2015 see ya'll in Bend!"
Reading his Facebook page is one of my favorite things.
