Brick workout, that is...
This afternoon I did my first back-to-back bike/run workout. Not a whole lot to it beyond 40 minutes on the bike followed by 25 minutes running with about a five minute transition in between (changing, helping the girls with their bikes, etc).
What I noticed most about the brick was how much my glutes were tired from the half-hour of climbing on the bike I'd just done. That, and my calf tightening up on me in the first five minutes of the run.
But, I didn't fall/fail on the run, which was my biggest concern in this first brick.
Now that I've survived, it's time to start training for faster times!
