Origin of the term "BRICK"
Quote | Reply
I have read the origin of the triathlon brick is "cloudy." That there is a mystery to it.
I have read that BikeRun "ICK" but that sounds a little dorkey I also heard that the origin in connected to Pink Floyd's "Another Brick in the Wall" from the west coast. That you need to do a bike/run to create a fundamental building block of training. That sounds like some gonga was used.
are either of these true, or are there other explanations.
thanks for your insights

I heard once that it was named after former two-time world duathlon champion Dr. Matt Brick (from New Zealand). Or maybe it's how your quads feel when you start running after a hard ride:)

'Cause it feels like that's what's attached to your feet when you start the run.

It started back in 3000 BC, when the ancient Sumarians hastily crossed the Tiberius and fled to Larak. During that time the scrolls revealed the term 'Bricanuis', which loosely translated means, 'Do I really have to run now? I just swam the Tiberius'.

I think it just evolved from the early weekly hand written training calendars or logs. Something like B/R: 3:00/1:00. The B/R just morphed into BRICK instead of verbally telling someone you had to Bike Run on Sunday your said Brick.

Strangely, in Quebec a lot of people use brick to mean a Swim/Bike/Run workout. Just Bike/Run is a transition workout.

I think I read years ago that Mark Sisson and a bunch were out on a ride and he said when he got back he was going to go for a run. When asked why he said he was just putting another brick in the wall. I could be completely wrong on this.
Monty could probablly tell us exactly how it came up. Hell, he was probably there when it was first used.

Because if you do it right, you would rather be hit in the head with a brick than do it again!
That is a quote... but I don't remember where from.

Run, work, run, sleep, repeat until fast, injured or insane.

Triathlon legend tells that Mark Sisson (former Tri-Fed Executive Director & ITU Secretary General) & Scott Zagarino (who has worn many hats in the sport) coined the term. The Pinlk Floyd song was their inspiration. It was not Dr. Matthew Brick, who practices medicine just the down the road from where I live, that the term was derived.
