To any of you other triathletes you know what a brick workout is. To those of you who are not I will explain. A brick workout is when you do two workouts back-to-back. For example whenever I got for a bike ride then immediately run after. From what I have heard and read these are some of the best workouts to incorporate in your training.

The easiest and most common is going from biking to running and vice versa. Today I did a kind of "extended" brick workout. I went back to where I will bike my race and did the full two laps for a total of 16 miles. The hill conquered me today unfortunately. My legs were a little heavy from my late incline workout last night and I could have used some more food in my system before taking on the heat and the hill. I will make it a point to get back there a couple more times before my race.

I then went home and got changed and headed to the pool for the second half of my brick workout. My legs felt like dead weight today but I managed to finish my whole workout which I was happy about. This is what I did:
1 x 300
1 x 200
1 x 250
1 x 200
1 x 250
6 x 50
1 x 200

The rest of the night I spent with my good friend Tyler catching up and watching Brian Regan! If you haven't heard this comedian before you HAVE to YouTube it! Happy YouTubing :)
