Welcome to Episode #184 of the Mile High Endurance podcast. You are listening to your weekly connection to coaches, experts and pro athletes to help you reach your endurance goals. We are your hosts coach Rich Soares and 303 Chief Bill Plock. Thanks for joining us for another week of endurance interviews and discussion.
This week we have Darryl Griffiths of Shotz Nutrition to talk about sweat testing, hydration and fueling. I'm really excited about this topic. This has been one of the areas that has challenged me personally throughout my history with longer distance races. I feel like after working with Inigo San Milan and Bob Seebohar, combined with field testing, I was finally able to get the information I needed to not guess.
Thanks to last week's discussion guest TO and the breakdown of Ironman Boulder. We are looking forward to seeing him in Kona.
