I just started a custom plan using Plan Builder and Adaptive Training beta to train for a full distance triathlon (not actually doing a full distance tri, instead training for a marathon, but want to stay in triathlon shape) . Yesterday after my Ramp Test + endurance workout as suggested by TrainNow, there were some adaptations suggested. I accepted them and noticed that it changed the workout I am scheduled to do tomorrow, which is now a sweet spot ride (Weston) followed by a 20 min brick run.
Having spent the better portion of the past two years following the TR full distance tri plans, I am used to brick runs always following a tempo ride, not an interval ride like this. Now I am not yet declaring this a good or bad thing, but it is certainly one of those haven’t-thought-about-until-now things. Have any of you tried brick runs after interval workouts? I would imagine this particular sweet spot workout will have a similar impact on my running legs as a tempo ride, but maybe in the future AT suggests something more intense? Having only done bricks after more steady state rides (e.g. Phoenix) I am not sure what to expect from doing a run after intervals. Perhaps it’s one of those things that none of us have questioned until now and AT will cause us to think about this.
Anyone with experience/thoughts?
