BricksWith this weekend's off road tri weighing on my mind I decided to do a brick of sorts yesterday. For those of you non tri geeks, a brick is when you combine two disciplines into one workout. For example, for regular tri training you might swim for an hour and then go for a bike ride. For me, I'm not too concerned about the kayak to bike transition but the bike to run should be interesting. I know that I don't have time to really train at this point but I can at least get the body used to the transition to some extent. With that in mind, I did a mountain bike commute home last night, rolling home with roughly 1 3/4 hours of ride time and then I laced up the running shoes to go for a run. B's buddy Rachel was over and her mother and brother were there to pick her up so when Owen saw me getting ready for a run, he insisted on going as well. Who cares if he only had crocs with him. I've got to admit, he kept up quite well for close to 20 minutes. Sure, I didn't run full speed but for a 7 year old in crocs it was quite impressive.
One of the perils of my mtn commute is that there is a 3 mile section that I alone use so this time of year it can get overgrown in spots. I swear, there is a trail in here somewhere.
flashing the bods. I'm not really flexing but I am rockin a nice farmer's tan.
