Brick Runs

Posted: 11/01/2017 at 15:25

I was advised to do a lot of brick training, but with all the best intentions I never actually managed that much - I'm not sure in the end for a completer such as me it made much difference.

In a sprint distance race where the run only lasts for 20 minutes or so, staggering around for the first 10 minutes because you haven't done enough brick sessions to be able to run strongly off the bike would make a big difference. For an iron distance, 10 minutes out of 5 hours or so is a much smaller difference.

Hydration systems

I just use two bottle cages.

If you turbo through the winter using bottle cages, practice not looking down (and remember to drink!). Then, by the time you get out on the road again, your hand should find the cage automatically.

I find it difficult to reach the rear cage. so I tend to use the front until I empty it, and then hold the empty bottle in my teeth while I switch the rear to the front. That manoevre takes a little more practice!

Great to see the pirate teams just down from our running club, and meet Mallowpuff for the first time and see Cake again. Well run all the pirate teams - was good to see you out on course!

Sounds good - will look out for you! Staring at pouring rain at the moment and hoping that the BBC have got the weather right for tomorrow.
