Mile High Endurance Podcast

Mile High Endurance is recorded in the Rocky Mountain front range area in Denver, Colorado. 55 miles to the north is the triathlon 'Mecca' of Boulder, home of some of the most prominent pros in triathlon and related sports. 56 miles to the south is the US Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs. The Olympic Complex in Colorado Springs is the flagship training center for the U.S. Olympic Committee and the Olympic Training Center programs. The 110 mile stretch between Boulder and Colorado Springs is one of the fittest and athletic populated areas in the world. I share these statistics, not so much to brag but to give you the listener context for what the culture and vibe is here in the Mile High area. ​The objective of the Mile High Tri podcast is to connect you to the triathlon community and empower you to achieve your triathlon and fitness goals. Each month we will take subjects that you are interested in and connect your interests with news, expert interviews, and information about services and products in a way that inform your decisions to achieve your full potential in the sport.

Interview Setup

Among topics that are covered in the book are proper goal setting, keeping it fun, building your team, intention in training, improving motivation, promoting self-confidence, mind/body cohesion, brining it on race day, coping with setbacks, taking ownership of your athletic career and becoming a joyous athlete for life.

 

Most athletes know how to train their bodies.  Far too few know how to train their minds.  Joanna has helped athletes of all ages and abilities and has proven that with proper education and a little nudging, athletes are able to not just change their physical game, but their mental game as well!

  • Our motivation for doing this show is to inspire you to pursue a life-long love of endurance sport and to be as fast as you can.  With that in mind, I first want to recommend a swim article on USA Triathlon - What-is-the-Best-Streamline
  • Second, I want to share a Swim Workout that I wrote to work on technique and improve my 500 times.  Because the goal of this workout is transferring drills in to skills and evolving my technique to improve my swim stroke efficiency, I'm trying maximize the speed of my learning and muscle memory.  Hence, I recommend doing this with a Halo Sport to "neuroprime" your brain, specifically your motor cortex.
    • WU - 500 easy - very easy.  The focus is on balance and to swim with very soft hands and arms.  Focus on having your face neutral in the water and pressing your chest into the water.  Try the one arm and two arm "superman" position where you are kicking lightly and having your body floating at the surface.  When recovering your arm, make sure you are starting with your thumb on your hip or the outside of your leg.  Begin the recovery with your should keeping your elbow high, forearm and hands hanging straight down and then drop your hand into the water quietly just above your head - again hand and fingers soft.  Feel how your balance and float changes - you should stay high and balanced.
