-Tamsin’s recent bike crash during a 70.3 and how she recovered quickly in order to race again
-That first half-Ironman and how to figure out the right nutrition to avoid bonk
-Can getting nutrition “wrong” have short- and long-term ill effects?
-Is it dangerous to start long-distance triathlon at a young age? Do you have any tips for young athletes?
-Alcohol in weeks/days leading up to a big race — cut it out or is 1 drink still ok?
-Tips on hydration in heat for ultra racing and more on the physiology of exercising in heat and how that affects nutrition/fluid intake.
