RT @EndurancePlanet: Unfortunately we’re unable to do Ragnar Cape Cod this year but we still have an entry. If anybody is interested in run…
We’re joined by Dr. Tamsin Lewis, pro triathlete, for an episode of Sports Nutrition (and other health and wellness topics) to discuss the following:
-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.
