A-Event Training, Pregnancy and Cycling, Mid-Ride Nutrition and More – Ask a Cycling Coach 310

Another pre-recorded episode this week with Amber, Nate and Pete. And yes, the day has finally come that we discussed Crocs on the podcast :wink: .

Whether it’s elevation, heat, technicality or just an abnormally strong field, going the extra mile to make sure you are ready for your goal event can make a big difference. Tune is as we discuss this, as Amber shared what she is learning about pregnancy and cycling, and as Pete shares some fantastic nutrition guidelines for mid-ride nutrition

Hope you enjoy!

I miss the timestamps in Overcast…any plans to bring those back? I usually skip the things that don’t apply to me (like pregnancy).

As the OP to the ‘I miss the old podcasts’ thread, I’d like to say I really enjoyed this episode. It was lovely to hear everyone relaxed and joking around. Found myself chuckling as I listened. Nate’s description of Escape from Alcatraz and everyone’s reaction was really funny.
Thank you.
