How to Plan and Log Brick Workouts
For brick workouts, please note that we can only store one set of duration and distance per workout. Thus, our suggested method for logging data for a Brick workout is to either:
- Store the total distance of the Bike and Run within the Brick workout itself, thus combining the overall distances of the two separate workouts.
- Create a separate Bike and a separate Run workout, and log data for each leg of the Brick separately. This is our suggested and preferred method. This leads to showing 3 workouts for the day:
* The planned Brick
* The actual Bike
* The actual Run
This method provides the most accurate and fine-grained recording of data. For people that use a training device like a GPS or HRM or Power Meter, it's simply a matter of uploading the two separate data files and the Bike and Run workout will be created automatically showing the results.
Planning a Brick workout is possible, but we encourage coaches to consider simply planning a Bike and a separate Run, but noting in the workout description these are intended to be performed back-to-back, as a Brick.
