Brick Workout for Triathletes Facing Hilly Course
7/27/2010 | | Share

Here’s one to try if you’re a triathlete facing a race with a big hill in the middle (such as Boulder Peak). It’s to be performed on a trainer:

  • 10 min warm-up
  • 30 min at just below race pace in Aero position
  • Stand up and go hard for 10-15 minutes (do not touch seat during this phase of the ride – even once)
  • Back into Aero position for 30-40 minutes to equal total expected length of the bike portion of the ride
  • Immediately change into running shoes and run just below race pace for 10 minutes
  • 10 minute warm-down (running or cycling)

Go get ’em!
