Ask FasCat #3 — Q&A!

Welcome to another regeneration week (AKA our monthly Q&A episode)! We field questions from the FasCat community to provide our best responses to questions about training, racing, nutrition, and more every 4 weeks. We're back with answers to questions like how to properly perform full gas efforts, thoughts on active recovery rides, what we eat after hard rides, and more. Thanks for listening, and for submitting your questions to help (at) or via social media.
