The Endurance Specific Podcast

To say we are excited about this episode is an understatement! In fact Kristian stayed up past midnight to fit in with time schedules for this one!

Tim Noakes shouldn't need an introduction, he has played a pivotal role in health and performance research for over 30 years. In case you don't know about Tim .... (crazy thought), he wrote the bible for runners and running coaches in 1986 called 'The Lore of Running" which included a whole chapter on the importance of carbohydrates for athletes and runners. His stance publicly changed when he ripped out that nutrition section of his famous book stating we had got it so wrong.

In Today's Episode We Cover:

  • Why he ripped out pages of his infamous "Lore of Running" book.
