One hour and forty six minutes…

…of continuous cardiovascular exercise. That’s what I just got back from.

When training for a triathlon a “brick” is when you do two events in a row. In my current training regime I do a bike/run brick every Saturday. Today was the first time I did the entire distance for bike (12 miles) and run (3 miles). The bike took 42 minutes and there was about 5 minutes of transition. Actually more like 3 minutes, I just walked the beginning of the run while drinking some Gatorade.

I was running very slow, and I’d come up on other walkers and runners and I’m sure I looked like I was about to fall over. I kept wanting to say, “I rode my bike for a hour first”. Ahhh pride.
