40k + 10k = awesome!

Brick session 1!

First of all … what is a brick?!

A brick workout refers to the stacking of two disciplines during the same workout, one after the other with minimal to no interruption in between.  As you switch modes of exercise, your body needs to effectively and efficiently prepare for the next demand while recovering from the previous exercise demand. Your heart rate increases significantly as your body tries to shift the blood flow from the muscles of the first exercise to the demands of the muscles of the next. Brick workouts help your body handle the aerobic, anaerobic, and muscular demands of a triathlon event.

So today, I did a brick session. 40km turbo and a 10km run. It went really well! CYCLE 40.08 km in 1h:13m:39s. RUN 10.00 km in 59m:40s.

So basically 2hr 15mins for and 40/10 50km brick! 6 hours later, legs feel fine.

Over the moon now! Really pleased with the pacing on the cycle.

  Not the fastest 10km time, but rock solid pacing throughout.
