I was just filling in my training log and realised that i had forgotten to fill in my Monday Bike and Run Brick<br><br>
My brick run is only a short run of 1.8km I did it in 8:42 (This is fast for me )<br><br>
I looked at an earlier training log from a couple of weeks ago and the same brick run was 8:42 and the one from the previous week was 8:43<br><br>
Now either I am being really really consistent or I am not improving at all <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>
(Although the times are the same for the run the bike has been longer and harder each time)<br><br>

Don't sweat it. If the bikes have been longer and harder and your brick run has stayed the same, then I would claim that's an improvement. If, however, you feel you should be faster -- not by the time but in how you feel when running -- then challenge yourself to push harder. But if you do know that you will gain more from a standalone run workouts, such as a speedwork session or quality fartlek, than you would a brick run. Me, personally, I've become fit enough where a brick workout, even when I push the run, will not cause injury, so with that I like to push the run. It's my reward for making through a tough hour-thirty Trainer session.
