Decided to just do Yoga today and get some good stretching in for the Biathlon (or Brick Workout) – 12.7 Mile Time Trial Cycling and 2.3 Mile Run. So happy to get the season going! Been a while since I’ve raced (or even run for that matter).
Had a good Brick Workout today! Swimming to running. Not your normal brick, but it is quite difficult nonetheless and was a great workout. This evening I got in some Yoga and now I am finishing the night off with some foam rolling!
Today is a scheduled X2 Recovery + Mobility Day in the P90X2 Performance rotation. This program give you two rest or stretch days a week since it is designed to work more efficiently than its predecessor P90X (which is still an amazing program to this day and highly recommended for body transformation). So since today was a rest day, I thought it was fitting to go out and ride and run (back to back) as fast as I could. Seems restful enough, right? This is known as a brick workout, because after you get off of the bike, your feet feel like bricks hitting the pavement. This is a great way to get practical triathlon training since there is no rest between the three legs of the sport (swim/bike/run). Today I was happy with my performance especially after the ride I did yesterday. I am definitely looking forward to a yummy filling dinner tonight! Happy Valentines Day!
