Did I know what it really was? No.
Did I know the right people to ask? Heck ya.
I mentioned Jason yesterday [tri-guy + awesome cook].
Now there's Jeff. Yep, IRONMAN Jeff.
So they helped me sort out the details.
Bike THEN run.
but that wasn't going to work with today's schedule sooooooo.......
The "reverse brick" was born.
So I jumped on the treadmill for 9 miles at a 7:30 pace.
literally, threw on dry clothes . . . . Nascar'd my way down Shea Boulevard . . . . parked at the gym . . . . set up my bike . . . .
. . . . and waited all 3.44 minutes for class to start.
[omgosh there's a foot in this photo?!....gross . . .you bet cha I'm using the . . . RUN EMZ towels from 24 hour TM run!]
Yep. same. freaking. awesome. spin. instructor. from Tuesday. night.
Yep. . . . she got in my sweaty
totalandcompleteawesomeness [that's for you Dawn].
So as soon as we "finish" the one hour class. I put my bike up and race up the stairs for a bit. Figured I could get one mile in before I needed to be showered and presentable.
f r e a k i n g .
So lesson learned.
Took me almost 1/2 mile to "find" my legs. Did one mile at 9:30 pace.
Brick and reverse Emz-style brick do NOT equal the same thing.
but the best freaking workout I've had in a Loooooooooooooong time.
Nothing but MAD respect for you triathletes out there.
you. guys. rock.
Do you brick?
Do you bonk?
Do you noodle?
