    The Upsides to a Race Free Season

    The Upsides to a Race Free Season

    2020 has been a kick in the chamois for a lot of folks. For us endurance athletes, it's meant little to no racing. We've seen a definite split in the cyclist, runners, and triathletes who are intrinsically motivated versus those who have to have a carrot (race/event) in order to train with any kind of structure. While we all love to race, we have witnessed a number of upsides to going through an entire season without racing. So today's episode will keep your glass half full, and hopefully spark some motivation to keep moving forward regardless of the uncertainty that surrounds us all right now. So sit back, hide in a corner, take off your mask and join us for another episode of Coaches on Couches!

    Nailing Your Hydration Strategy With Andy Blow of Precision Hydration

    Let's face it. It's getting hot as hell outside and a lot of us are also training indoors more. Both scenarios bring on lots of that salty liquid we know as sweat. So we are tasking the tough hydration questions to our buddy Andy from Precision Hydration (a fellow salty sweater) so that all of you cyclists, runners, and triathletes out there can nail your hydration during the summer sizzler.
    This is probably one of the most informative interviews we've done, with a lot of actionable info. You won't want to miss it. Unless you don't care about your performance. In that case, carry on.
    f you are having issues with cramping, cooling, or generally feeling like garbage during or after a training session, this is your podcast. If you'd like to book a local sweat sodium test, you can book those at http://bpc.setmore.com or check out our website https://buildpeakcompete.com/hydration

    In this sprint episode we spark a revolt against the use of ERG mode when cycling indoors. If you don't know what ERG mode is, this one may not be for you. But if you are a cyclist or triathlete and spend a reasonable amount of time riding on a smart trainer, we're going to enlighten you and give you all the reasons we believe ERG mode is hindering the quality of your precious training time. If you disagree, we want to know! Feel free to drop us a comment.
