First Race Jitters, Base to Build + Carbs Per Hour on The Consummate Athlete Podcast
This week’s Q&A was a fun one—a lot of questions super relevant to the season and conveniently, to two articles I was working on the week prior, which either speaks to synchronicity or on-the-ball editors. LOVED talking about dealing with the first race jitters that all of us get at the start of every season—remember, race #1 is very likely NOT your best race of the season, and expecting it to go 110% perfectly is unrealistic!
- Oat Milk is a real thing? (Yes, but let’s talk about plant-based milks in general too!)
- First Race Day Jitters and Mistakes (Also check out my race-week breakdown here to feel super-prepared)
- Intensity – progressing from base to build phases (AKA how to deal with adding intensity—check out Peter’s coaching biz to learn more if you’re struggling to progress!)
- How Many Carbohydrates to consume per hour, why such a big range recommended? (Find out more in my nutrition book, Fuel Your Ride)
