Brick Workout… Does This Count

I know that a brick workout is when a triathlete does one workout immediately followed by another of one of the other disciplines…. Going swimming followed by a bike ride for example.

Does it work the other way around…. In a different order? I ran today and immediately jumped in the pool for laps.

Does this count as a brick workout?


HITS Triathlon Series?

Looking for advice… I’m thinking of entering a triathlon sponsored by this company…. HITS. They have triathlons all over the country so they must be doing something right.
Specifically, I’m looking at doing THE triathlon in Marble Falls Texas. This will be my first and I want to make sure that they put on a good race. I’m going to sign up for the Olympic distance. Is that to far for a first triathlon?
