Dan Plews talks training strategies for the endurance athlete

This week on the podcast 🎙️ Mikki is joined by returning guest Dr Dan Plews talking through training strategies that he’s currently interested in, the difference in the types of gels (i.e. maurten v other gels) and if they make a difference.
