bike/ run brick and I love my bike trainer.

Had a great bike/ run brick last night:

46m 01s
16.00 miles
20.86 Mi/hr
6:35 PM

29m 49s
3.31 miles
09m 01s/Mi
7:30 PM

My legs actually felt pretty fresh during the run. I find that the first few minutes are always the fastest ... and I'm not sure why? Maybe because my legs are so warm? I usually slow down a bit after that. I think I should probably go out more slowly, though.

I don't know what I would do without my bike trainer -- other than never get in a bike workout! I live in Baltimore City, and even if there wasn't horrible traffic and crazy drivers, there are stoplights at every block. It just isn't conducive to riding. With my trainer, I can bike whenever (although I stopped doing it in the morning -- I have a magnetic resistance trainer and it can get loud! and we share walls so I try to be considerate of my neighbors). I can watch a movie or tv or (ever better), Legally Blonde the Musical: The Search for the Next Elle Woods on On Demand .. and life is good.

  1. Nice brick Trish. I wish I had done more bricks before my last race.
