entrenamientos de transición o "bricks"
Explanation:
Hola Ana,
Una posibilidad con base en la siguiente descripción:

"...Triathletes train for this phenomenon through ****transition workouts or "bricks"****: back-to-back workouts involving two disciplines, most commonly cycling and running.*** (The term "brick" has multiple claims of origination/derivation. Among those is the derivation from a partial anagram of Bike-Run. Also, it is simply a descriptive term of how your legs feel for the first part of the run. Another is given credit to Mark Sisson and Scott Zagarino (1988) who associated the term brick to the idea of "Just another brick in the wall"... as noted in a song by the group "Pink Floyd". Another association of this term has been claimed to originate from a New Zealand athlete by the name of Matt Brick.)*** ..."
