Race Recaps including Western States + Racing after Time Off + Dropper Posts + Trouble Doing Power Outside

by | Jul 2, 2024 | Podcast

In this episode of the Consummate Athlete Podcast, Molly and Peter discuss several major events from the weekend, including the Tour de France, the Western States Running 100 Miler, and the Canadian Olympic Track Running Trials. We also discuss the Unchained Tour de France documentary and share key takeaways about mindset and self-talk, even for the best athletes in the world.

We address three listener questions, covering the challenges and strategies for racing after unplanned time off before an event, tips for learning the mtb skill of using your dropper seat post, and finally an issue doing the same power outside as indoors where we get into FTP settings and discuss why we have zones.

It’s a packed episode full of insights, tips, and stories from the world of cycling and endurance sports!
