Whats a Brick Session?
Your Building Bricks Back-to-back bike-run training workouts (aka “bricks”) are essential – they’ll teach you to run on legs that feel like jelly after hopping off the bike. Starting in the second month of training, do a bike-run brick every weekend. Figuring out that it takes about 10 minutes for you to get past the running through-mud feeling will mentally prepare you for race day – you’ll know you can push through and finish strong.
