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.

Our interview this week is with ultrarunner and author Brian Burk.  Brian is joining us to talk about his latest book 26.2 Tips to run your best Marathon.  If you've been listening to the podcast for a while, you may recall Brian joining us in February of 2017 to talk about his fiction book, Running To Leadville.  If you are curious to hear that interview you can find episode #61.  You can listen to all of the MHE episodes by going to the MHE website and clicking on the "Interviews" menu.  All of the shows for the years 2016, 17 and 18 are listed in date order.

Thanks to last week's guest, Coach Jim Vance on how he uses Today'sPlan and data to build athlete performance and confidence.  Author of Triathlete Science, Triathlon 2.0 and Running with Power.  Coach of athletes such as Ben Kanute with great success.  If you haven't heard the interview, go back and listen to episode #145.

 

Listener question:

Janyne Kizer wrote in: What would be really cool is if the software imported the weather for the time/location of our workout. That way both athlete and coach could see that it was 1000% humidity and that's why the heart rate was so high, etc.

 

In the interview Jim had explained that you can enable the calendar view to display the weather for the day on the calendar where the athlete trains.  It actually uses the lat/long of the gps files that are being uploaded.  On the calendar it shows the day's high, low and humidity

I confirmed with Jayne that she was asking for the temperature and humidity at the time of the workout.  We took that question to Benji Marshall of Today'sPlan and he wrote back: We show the temperature at the time of the activity in the bottom left when you open the activity. You can also add the avg, min and max temp in various areas of the platform that you can configure. This is the temperature that is recorded by the head unit at the time of the activity so is prone to being a little off as the head units can record some erroneous data in this regards but generally is quite good. See some screenshots below.  As for humidity I have put in a ticket to have this included as a field in the field select areas of the platform so it too can be added to the view by the user.

Thanks Jim for the interview.  Thank  you Jayne for the question.  Thanks Benji for the response.
