    ZenTri 670 - Tension is Good

    Show Notes: Use your tendons instead of muscles when you can. Swim faster by throwing your arms forward, like throwing a baseball. My homemade fuel formula (maltodextrin + maple syrup) Honey and maple syrup are both sucrose, but bees add an enzyme to pre-digest the honey for you. Don't fuel during your swim practices. I battle my cat over eating my headphones daily. Protect yourself from running injuries by warming up on your bike. The agony of looking for a lost Airpod. The Old Navy puffy jacket has changed my life. How to use tension to get more done. Zwift has added more levels, aero helmet, and possibly a disc wheel? And much more!
