I am using the 80/20 method by using the plans in the book. Im currently doing ironman 70.3 level 2 hoping to race oceanside 70.3 in March (not really expecting it to go but training like it will). I am about 10 weeks out now and need to start doing brick runs.
I noticed in the books there isn’t any brick runs in the plan? I am curios how to start adding these in on my Saturday long rides?
I noticed there are some days that have a bike and a run but I have always split those up as they are on a weekday and I just don’t have the time to knock out both back to back. I usually do one before work and one after. I work 12 hour shifts so those days are already brutal enough for me.
Irey, thanks for reading our book! See page 180, the introduction to the 70.3 plans:
“…weekend bike and run workouts scheduled on the same day should be done back to back as a single “brick” session to simulate the demands of half-Ironman racing. On weekdays during the specific phase, bike and run workouts scheduled on the same day are optional bricks.”
It’s buried in there. In the 2nd edition we’ll make that more obvious.
