Ep 142: MCT oil/Strides for Strength

In this episode:

Medium chain triglycerides (MCT) are advertised as a kind of booster fuel that can provide rapidly available and abundant energy during long training sessions or races. A fair amount of science has been done looking at whether or not this is true and on the Medical Mailbag we bring you the answers. Erin Rosen and Michaela Robertson are nurses, friends, runners and running coaches who together founded Strides for Strength a group that helps athletes break through plateaus on the run and beyond-- from everyday runs to chasing finish lines to hosting to retreats to never ending conversations about running on their podcast-- they are there for it all and on this episode they tell me all about it.
