My ten mile ride went smoothly. I grabbed my bike after getting home from work and rolled down the road at a moderate pace. I was able to maintain a moderate pace of 16 mph, so the bike went quickly (about 40 minutes). Then with a quick change of shorts (needed a different pair of compression shorts since my bike shorts don't quite agree with running), I was back out the door before my roommates even realized that I had left.
I quickly realized why these workouts are called bricks. My legs still wanted to use the cycling muscles even when I wanted to be using the running muscles that I have been
All in all, I think that my first Du is going to be interesting. I still need to about double the bike distance and throw in another run before hand of 5k. I am still looking for pointers on how to train and etiquette during a Du. I know runners have their code and I am assuming that it still holds during the run part, but the biking etiquette (other than the basics) is still a mystery. Any suggestions on where to look aside from the good ol' Google?
