The primary distinguishing feature of running in a triathlon is that it occurs after the athlete has previously swam and cycled for an extended period of time, thus there is an underlying fatigue factor. The effect of switching from cycling to running can be profound; triathletes train for this through transition workouts known as “bricks”: back-to-back workouts involving two disciplines, most commonly cycling and running.
