Brick Training

Recently, my blogs have been limited and short. There is not much to blog about other than training. Something tells me that not too many readers are sucked into my training routine.

My days consist of waking up at 5AM to swim, run, or ride my bike. Monday through Thursday I have been doing brick training. Brick training is back to back workouts of a run and bike ride to get your leg muscles used to the transition between the two sports.

Once this TRI is finished on August 28, I will never run again. Mark my words. I have taken a vow to never ever, never ever, ever, ever, ever again run another day in my life. My knees and feet hurt way too much. I have gotten this running stuff out of my system and it will be back to more dedicated time on my bike.


  1. I know how you feel. I really got serious about cycling because I had it with the running. I ran for years but when the doc wanted to operate on my knee I very quickly found another sport...and have been happy ever after.

  2. DO NOT stop writing about your training. Your commitment and passion for cycling is very motivating and inspiring, even for someone like me who's never been on a bike!

  3. And that is reason I do not run anymore

  4. Ditto re: running. Although some people are blessed with genes for running, the rest of us are better off switching to cycling or swimming. The sooner the better. But the thought of triathlons is so alluring.
