Long Covid/Joe Friel

In this episode:

Covid numbers have dropped and we may be in to a new phase of the pandemic but for millions of people symptoms persist in the form of long Covid. Worse, there may be as yet unknown long term consequences for young people as they age. Researchers at the University of Massachusetts recently published a paper that summarizes what is known about long covid in athletes and why some of it may portend for bad outcomes in the decades to come. I review their findings. Also, my conversation with Joe Friel with tips for how to get the most out of Training Peaks and his insights on the Triathlete's Training Bible.
