Bricks on Hump Day!!


My 20 year old daughter, Bri is training for a triathlon. I told her I would crew her for it since she’s always been my cheering crew as I dragged her to so many of my races. Plus it’s so exciting to watch her grow as a beautiful young woman and push herself athletically. Today we did a brick workout. 10 miles on bikes followed immediately by a 3 mile run. Utilizing my van and the bike path made this easy logistically however….. I’ve never done a brick workout. It was fascinating to jump off a bike and attempt to take off on a run!  Legs feel like lead, blood is pumping through all the wrong muscles…  The first 1/4 mile was weird feeling and we giggled a lot but it was fun and at the end we both felt like we got a great workout.  Thank you, Bri!  I think I’ll have another!!  Maybe once a week…

    I did some practice “bricks” with a friend a couple of years ago as she was training for a duathalon, its crazy how your legs feel after getting off the bike and running! Lead weights for sure!!

      Yup! But at the same time it was so great!! I liked feeling my muscles that way but I did feel like I had no control of the rubber legs. What a great workout!! I’ve thought about doing a duathalon or tri but for now this is my daughters thing. I’ll feel it out and see what I think!
