Wondering what to eat before and during your longer, lower intensity endurance rides? In this episode, we share our insights and preferences for fueling those aerobic miles. Hint: carbohydrates, fats, fiber, glycemic index, glycemic load, and whole foods are the buzz words during this type of training block.
This is a hot topic currently for our athletes in the midst of a mid-summer rebuild of fitness for end of summer and fall events following our 2020 Season Salvation Plan (see below).
Before the nutrition discussion we tackle some listener questions regarding restructuring one’s training season for late season events, returning to training after time away from the sport, and ‘losing’ fitness following a peak performance.
Join us for our newest training plan: 2020 Season Salvation!
We’re beginning June 15th (but you can join us whenever you’re ready) to re-build your fitness for the second half of 2020. We’ll be podcasting our way through a 12-week building of fitness for a (hopeful) late-summer/fall racing season. Train right along with us and learn how we do things to reach a second peak of fitness for the year.
*** DISCOUNT ALERT ***
We finish things off by offering our listeners a 50% discount on the 2020 Season Salvation Plan, bringing the cost down to just $48 for the 12-weeks of training, podcasting instruction & insights, motivation, accountability and, if nothing else, enjoyment on the bike through the entire summer… all for just $4 a week… less than a premium coffee!
