My tri club has RBR training every Wednesday throughout the summer. My kids usually have something on Weds and then football in August. Yesterday was the first time I was able to go.
The RBR is Run-Bike-Run where you run 1 loop (2.1 miles clockwise), Bike 5 loops (10.5 miles) and run 1 loop (2.1 miles counter clockwise) for a total 14.7 duathlon training. You may adjust the loops for your specific level or time.
Yesterday, I opted to skip the first run loop. I biked 4 loops (8.5 miles), then ran the 2.1 mile loop.
I have ran for a few minutes at least once a week when I got off my bike. However, trying to run an entire 2 miles after was much more tiring in the beginning. I had to run/walk (mostly walk) the first 1/2 mile, ran the next 1.5 miles straight, then ran/walk (mostly run) the last 1/2 mile.
It took a whole 1/2 mile for my legs to feel normal.
Those few minutes I was running after biking was definitely not enough.
Just wanted to share.
