I started doing run/bike on alternate days instead of doing about 5 bricks per
week as I'd been doing all season. When I did the 5 bricks per week a few
would be with no rest between event, but most more am/pm workouts.
I find this new alternate day routine much harder than doing double
workouts! I'm looking for opinions on whether this extra perceived
difficulty in training should translate into better performances in
biathlons, or, is it just a less effective technique that will wear me down
I expect to find some of these answers from personal experience sooner or
later, but I'd welcome feedback from others that have gone through similar
It's very tempting to switch back to bricks, but I keep on thinking that
that easier training method will not prove as fruitful come October when I
have a biathlon scheduled for every weekend.
