It didn’t really dawn on me how much listening to the Ask a Cycling Coach Podcast was impacting me until one day I realized I was doing something I had never done before, but had recently heard about on the podcast.
Less than a week after listening to episode 289 I found myself licking my heart rate monitor strap.
Which got me wondering, I wonder what other ACCP listeners are doing today that they never did before listening to the podcast.
I didn’t consume calories like I do today while training. Or own an indoor trainer. Or have a power meter. Or take Pomegranate Extract. Or time my meals. I rode outside, hammered when I could, and toodled when I needed to.
I eat way more carbs on the bike!
I have recovery shake after almost every ride or workout

Very small detail in the grand scheme of training and nutrition, but I always leave buffer time between caffeine consumption and food intake. I actually sent in this question a while back and @chad found the topic interesting enough for a deepdive
You should listen (link below) and consider/rethink the timing of your coffee/caffeine intake
