The Best Running Podcast (ever)
1) I’ll start with an intro to his December 15, 2011 podcast-
Ben Greenfield answers your questions on: Drinking carbonated water, will it negatively affect performance? How should fueling change for freezing-temp bike rides? Not eating before a marathon unless it’s at least 3 hrs prior to a race? Caffeine intake: What is the proper timing, formulation, dose, duration for endurance performance? Maltodextrin and glucose in fuel? And energy drinks: how bad are they, really?
Now clearly I am not riding a bike in freezing temperatures and I’m not too familiar with maltodextrin, but I can relate to eating before a marathon and energy drinks. There are so many other issues that he, along with the other contributors, discuss, any person interested in health would find the information useful (artificial sweeteners, intermittent fasting, the best cardio machine at the gym – really just anything you want to know.)
2) The website offers archives of all previous podcasts as well as previous articles, so you are certain to find whatever you are looking for.
3) If you have a question, just send it his way and it might be the topic of discussion for the next podcast (I’m sending in one about the Paleo Diet, so be sure to listen out =P)
4) Most of the podcasts are pretty short (20-30 minutes), so it’s a great way to start your day while you are having your morning coffee (or putting on your makeup).
I have been searching quite some time now for a good podcast to help me with my running and fitness goals. I’m so glad I came across Endurance Planet at 5:00am this morning, because now I feel like all I ever wanted to know is right at my fingertips (or headphones). Thank you iTunes.
