Ep. 75: Circadian rhythm and best time of day to perform/Bill Ogden

In this episode:

Are you a morning person? An evening person? Something in between? Whatever it is, that chronotype has implications for when you are likely to best perform as an athlete during the day. Circadian rhythm refers to our internal clock and it has control over many physiologic processes. It turns out that it also has effects on athletic performance but it can be manipulated. In this episode I review the science on what time of day we perform our best and how we can manipulate our biology to work for us when we want it to. Plus, an interview with Detroit attorney and Ironman Foundation fundraiser Bill Ogden. Bill has had an eventful 2020 and 2021 in and out of our sport and he shares his experiences good and bad to help us all see the good that is in triathlon.
