so for last few months i have pretty much done the same type of brick on a saturday...cycle 5 miles to centre of park, run for 2 miles, cycle home 5 miles..all with running shoes...
now have clip in shoes so looking to change routine to be based around my home and looking for ideas...i.e. cycle 20 mins, run 10 mins...x 2/3/4.....or cycle longer/shorter?
goal is to get at least an 60-90 mins workout, improve the running off the bike so guessing multiple smaller bike/ runs are the way to go?...(btw this is still Sprint distance)...all ideas welcome...

    Not sure if this is any help but in the gym i tend to do 'mini' bricks. i get on the spin bike for 20 mins quite hard then jump on the treadmill and run 1k pretty much as fast as i can, then repeat 2 or 3 times. When I am outside on the bike i tend to do an hour bike then half hour run or so, without repeating. hope that helps

    Have done similar in gym-5k bike (or 10 mins) then 1k at pace below race pace-say 11kmph, if you're normally 12 kmph

    Repeat three times, keeping bike pace the same but upping run by 0.5 each time

    well tried to do my new brick..but the weather was too good....so just kept riding until i hit 20km...then jumped off changed to trainers and ran 5km...suppose helps with the bike leg feeling, but sure it is not the best way to train as i was blowing hard near the end!

    Sounds like a good session. remember on race day you will only need to cycle and run once so nothing wrong at all with that.

    Hussler's got the best brick session if you want to really hurt. I can't remember the details but used it a couple of times. Bike - run - bike - run - bike at different intensities each for 30-45 minutes. Not for the faint of heart but really good at getting you ready for racing.
