Coach Jonathan is out on paternity leave, so the rest of the podcast crew will be hosting for the next month. Up first? Our very own Coach Chad! We’ll cover if coffee drinkers should manage their hydration differently, do recovery days hurt sleep quality, and reasons why you are getting dropped even when you’re fit. Tune in to Episode 375 of the Ask a Cycling Coach Podcast for discussions on these topics and much more!
Just to state what most probably already know… there are reusable K-cup styles out there. These allow (require) you to add your own ground coffee, but reduces the cup waste and still gives the ease of use from that style of coffee maker.
Chad you did great. Interested to see how the round robin shakes out before Jonathan gets back.
@Nate_Pearson Talk for 2 hours, but make sure what you talk about can be edited down into snippets for the yet to be released sub category of videos “60 Second Nate” - Extemporaneous Tips from Nate in about 60 seconds.
I ditched the k-cups and now do an ESPRO (double screen french press) No chunks and great coffee in about 5 minutes and not contributing to the k-cups circling the earth (last total was at 10 times around and growing)
Beer doesn’t dehydrate? Well I suppose that means I can keep on having non-alcoholic while still in season and not torch my training.
Coach Chad kicked butt doing double duty. Buy the man a beer or three. Yes, I miss Beers with Chad. I hope when Nate host Chad eats his lunch when there is a pause.
I checked the Skratch crispy rice cake I like, chocolate & mallow, it has 34 grams of carbs. I can eat one easily to add carbs, reduce pallet fatigue from liquid fuel and Skratch crews and it gives my stomach something to work on. Any ride over 2 hours I throw one in my jersey.
I heard a reference to @ambermalika. Is she still with TR? Really enjoy @IvyAudrain and would be interesting to have both of them on one podcast. When @Jonathan gets back have Ivy, Amber, Hanna, and Sophia in one show. It could bring up things never covered.
I have a ninja coffeemaker that will brew single cups just like it would brew a pot. Just set it to single, put two scoops of coffee in a regular coffee filter and boom. During a day I don’t even bother to put a clean filter in there, I just pile more coffee on top and brew until i can’t brew anymore. works really well.
Great job Chad! Different personalities do things differently. What works for Jonathan wouldn’t necessarily work for you and vice versa! I like this version of the podcast!
The only issue I see with Chad hosting is that he is basically the “meat” of the podcast. His deep dives are why I listen and I’m always happy when he’s on because I know he is going to present research. If he is the host, its hard to be the main attraction and the host at the same time.
hey come to my house when kiddo #1 shows up with her masters in environmental/civil engineering and day job cleaning up ground water. She has been here at least 4 times this summer and everytime we are shamed over something new LOL
This can raise LDL? I did not know that. Over the past 10 years I’ve been getting flagged for high overall cholesterol, but never for the ratio. my HDL has been high but my GP (who’s also sports medicine) and cardiologist haven’t seemed to worried about it. LOTS of excercise seems to defuse a lot of conversations. Not all, but many.
My wife and I swapped from French press to Chemex pour over, because of her cholesterol. Subsequent checks after the switch have shown reductions to get here more into the acceptable range. She was reading similar comments about the press and how it draws parts of the coffee out.
It never occurred to me that the oils from coffee would be that big of a factor, even more so at the quantity one would get from 2 cups. I wonder if the roast matters there? Darker roasts, less caffeine, but more oils and more caffeine in light, but are the oils impacted as well.
Mark this as a new question for Coach Chad. #IMPORTANT!
