The TriDoc Podcast: Ep. 36: Blood donation/Kevin Koskella/Motivation in Isolation

Blood donation is the ultimate selfless gift to those in need. But how does the gift of life interfere with endurance sport? Does a pint of blood result in significant losses in hemoglobin that can impact exercise performance? Can triathletes be blood donors and still effectively train? Kevin Koskella is the TriSwimCoach and has a podcast of the same name. He has made a career out of helping triathletes swim better and faster. He joins me to talk about how even adult learners can be better in the water and gives his thoughts on the need for flip turns when training in the pool. Finally, another member of the Cupcake Cartel joins me to share thoughts and tips for keeping up Motivation in Isolation.
