RM12 as a brick run?

    We are on about week 8 of the spring level 2 training plan. I don’t believe we have had an actual brick run to date BUT I see that RM12 is scheduled as a brick after a 90 minute zone 2 ride. I greatly appreciate the value of a brick run but this mixed interval run seems abit intense as a Brick. Would it not be better to do a zone 1/2 run just to start get your legs trained to run off the bike?
    Thanks as always!


    I would not recommend RMI2 as a brick….but that’s just me.

    Note that it is an optional brick this week, not a “required” one. In fact, you can even do it in reverse, the RMI first and then an easy 1.5 hours bike ride.

    It’s a demanding workout, but many athletes find that they run better off an easy bike.

    Regardless, you can for sure adjust and make it an easy run. Or, just move the RMI to Friday instead and perform it in isolation.



    Thank you!

    Jut did RM12 today for first time. I decided against it as a brick especially since it would have been the first brick of this training plan.

    Did ride in the am and run in the pm. I think it would have been fine if I had done the 30 minutes zone 1 ride, RM12 then finished the ride (as it indicates in the notes on the plan as an option)

    RM12 was challenging but I was able to hit all of the Zone 3, 4 and 5 targets both times. I was mid range, not the slow end or fast end of the range.
