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.

Welcome

Welcome to Episode #102 of the Mile High Endurance podcast.  Mile High Endurance is your weekly connection to coaches, experts and pro athletes to help you reach your endurance and triathlon goals.  We're your hosts Rich Soares and Bill Plock and we are glad you are joining us for another week of endurance interviews and discussion.  Khem Suthiwan is still on vacation in Iceland, but will be back next week.

Would a triathlete be a national Time Trial Champion?  Sure.  Would a triathlete be a winner of the Critérum du Dauphiné?  I doubt it?  Would a triathlete be the winner of the Mt Baldie Stage of the Tour of California?  Not likely.  How about have ttop 10 and 11 GC standings at the Tour de France?  Well if you guessed those accomplishments belong to Andrew Talansky, you are correct.  We have Andrew joining us in just a few minutes.

But wait there's more.  You all know how much we like to talk about and emphasize learning proper form and technique.  We have Halo Neuroscience co-founder, Dr. Daniel Chao joining us with Andrew to talk about the way Andrew has used Halo as a professional cyclist to do specific strength and endurance training, and now how he is using it as a tool to continue to develop his swimming and running form and technique.  Dr. Chao will help us understand the science of electric wave stimulation of the motor cortex, hyper plasticity and how similar learning motor skills are to cognitive learning.

Discussion Teasers

Before we get into the interview, let's catch up with Bill and Khem. 

Khem, how are you and will you give us an Iceland report after the interview?

Bill, what hippie haps do you have for us?

Interview Setup

We talked about some of Andrew Talansky's career accomplishments in the intro.  What we didn't mention was his goal to qualify as a professional triathlete and compete in Kona against the pro field in 2018.  Before he can get in the water in Kailua Bay with the pro field, he first has to qualify.

In the interview, we'll talk about his first Triathlon a little over a month ago at the Marin County Triathlon.  We all have our first tri story and Andrew is no exception.  You'll love to hear his first time tri experience. 

Let's get into the interview now.

Health IQ Ad

And we are back.  Thanks again to Health IQ for sponsoring today's interview.  The Health IQ advantage is their unique mortality model that enables lower rates for health conscious people.  Just like having a good driving record saves you money on auto insurance, Health IQ uses science & data to secure lower rates on life insurance for health conscious people including runners, cyclists, strength trainers, vegans, and more.

With other life insurance companies, you might be penalized for family history, BMI, and other attributes but don’t get rewarded for your health conscious lifestyle.  You put in the time to train consistently, have the discipline to get out there in the cold, in the dark, you eat well, and you get the rewards of greater energy, wearing the clothes you want to wear, why stop there? 

You spend money on race registrations, gym memberships and gear.  See if you can reward yourself further and recoup some of those investments. See how much you can save.
