Does it count?!?!

Leave a comment

Well hello there!

Ok, so lately I have been grappling with two “does it count” questions.  Help me out…Here we go:

1.  When I walk the 8.5 mile loop on Sundays with Shiya, does this count toward my weekly mileage totals for Half Mary training ?!?!  Please tell me your thoughts!!!!

2.  So what EXACTLY constitutes a “brick” workout?  Yesterday, I ran three miles for my Half training and then took a spin class.  Is this a brick technically?!?!  When I google “brick workout,” this is what I come up with …

Bricks refer to training on two disciplines during the same workout, one after the other with minimal or no interruption in between, just as you would do in a race (I am sure you knew this). Usually when people talk about bricks they refer to a bike/run workout, but bricks could also refer to a swim/bike workout or to a run/bike workout (if you are training for a duathlon). These last two are often overlooked but still important to fit here and there in your training plan.

OK, so it seems that my run + spin WOULD then be considered a good “brick.”  your thoughts?!?!?

Well either way refueling was IMPORTANT!  Last night I brought back an old fall fave, SPAGHETTI SQUASH!  Nom nom!  This time, I topped it with a CREAMY tomato vodka sauce and it was delish!

THIS deserves a close-up!

AND speaking of refueling, I SOMEHOW forgot to post this REDIK pic of me “refueling” (obviously feeling anemic and craving MEAT I ordered and ENTIRE cheesesteak pizza for myself post-run Saturday hahah)…
