My First Brick Session
Well after a disappointing rest day at the international foortball yesterday, today I decided that I would attempted my first brick session. 10 mile and a 2.5 mile run.
I took the bike route relatively easy and tried to keep my heart rate low, there were a few hills on the route but they were mainly small inclines so the legs didn't get a massive workout. This was a new route for me, its was lovely, quiet roads, brilliant views and smooth surface for the bike. All right there were a few pot hole, but the road was very quick, which was great for getting some speed up. I've been looking for a new route to run and cycle and I think I've found it! (Thanks Vicki).
I was looking forward to seeing how my transition goes, I had cycle shorts on and bike trousers on over the top, so at the change point I had to take my bike shoes off, trousers off, bike shorts off and put my running shoes and shorts on. I've got lock laces so I don't need to tie my laces up. I think my transition was about 2 minutes, its on the Garmin, I just pressed the lap button so I think its a close-ish reflection.
Then, the run, I wanted to work harder on the run and the first mile I had the technical term of "jelly legs" I was only planning a 2.5 mile run but it was far enough to get the concept of coming off the bike straight into the run. I think in April I will have lots more brick sessions planned so my legs, arms, head get used to the transitioning. I really enjoyed today, I'll to today again!
