Does it matter what time of day you exercise and can you minimise the harmful effect of shift work on your circadian rhythm?
This week we're chatting with Brian Keane who's just completed The Marathon De Sables - a multiday ultra-endurance foot race in the Sahara Desert. The 6 day event requires athletes to cover around 254 km with individual stages varying in length with the longest day around 91 km. Aside from the extreme temperatures which can range from ~50°C in the day to ~5°C at night, a further challenge is that competitors are required to be largely self-sufficient and must carry all their own food and equipment for the event.
