Our interview this week is with the Co-founder of iKOR Labs, Mark Fleming.  We are going to get your questions answered about CBD.  Why are endurance athletes using it?  How are they using it?  Is it legal?  What benefits does it provide?  Who's using it?  How to take it?

Thanks to last week's guests, professional triathlete Timothy O'Donnell. 

I'm very excited to bring you Mark Fleming and iKOR.  When I first discovered iKOR, it was 2017 under the pre 2018 WADA and USADA rules and I honestly decided to not pursue this as a topic for the podcast.  I researched the WADA and USADA sites.  I researched the USAT position and at that time there was not a clear distinction between THC and CBD.

In January of 2018, CBD was removed from the WADA and USADA banned substance list.  I got reconnected with Mark Fleming and Craig Sweeney at the Sansego camp here in Boulder.  As we talked more and I tried it for myself, I have noticed an incredible difference in my recovery and reduced inflammation most of all.  We'll talk more about the resources that we'll make available in the show notes, plus a letter from USADA to a recent athlete who uses iKOR, was on the podium, was tested and the letter from USADA addresses his disclosure of CBD usage and the results of his test declaring him clean from banned substances.

Let's get into the interview and talk more after.

More resources on CBD, USADA and WADA information, letter from USADA and more

Breaking down the training and nutrition for Boulder 70.3

2800 Open water swim at Grant Ranch at race pace plus 70+ miles on Saturday;

Sweat rate of 36.9 oz/hr; consumption of 29.1 oz/hr; IF of .74; temp of 92 (note 83 degrees and IF of .91, sweat rate is 42.4

Kept up at 40 oz/hr for the first 2.5 hours, but then dropped to 20 oz/hr for the final 2

I started dehydrated at a SG of 1.020 and regressed to 1.030; the specific density of water would be 1.000. Ideally, urine specific gravity results will fall between 1.002 and 1.030 if your kidneys are functioning normally. Specific gravity results above 1.010 can indicate mild dehydration. The higher the number, the more dehydrated you may be.

  • Bob Seebohar and eNRG Metabolic test; before and after data comparison; information on carbohydrate calorie in common products
    • Key dates: test 1 June 6; test 2 July 26 (7 weeks)
    • Metabolic exchange rate - the rate (running pace in this case) at which the runner starts burning more carbohydrate than fat
      • Test 1 - 9:23 pace & HR of 151
      • Test 2 - 8:27 pace & HR of 158
    • Percent Carb/Fat

      • Test 2 - 10:20 37/63; 9:50 40/60; 9:23 41/59
    • Carb Calories per Hour
      • Test 1 - 9:23 pace = 480; 8:34 pace = 591
      • Test 2 - 9:23 pace = 352; 8:34 pace = 455
    • Note that this was done over a 7 week period.  If you are thinking that this is only something you can address in the off season, think again!  If you have an A race in September or October, there's still time to learn more about your metabolic rates and do something about them.  Anyone going to Kona and want to give themselves the ability to go faster on fewer carbs?  Give Bob Seebohar a call.  Seriously, go to eNRGperformance.com to learn more.  I'll have the report on the site.
  • Race Nutrition Implications in terms of calories per hour
    • Before - Bike 135-177 (carbs) 269-296 (total) calories/hr - 1 scoop of Skratch has 80 calories; 2 bottles per hour to fuel (160) plus a Clif Shot 100 cal

Jul 22, 2018

Our interview this week is with Tim O'Donnell.  We have a lot of questions for T.O. about how the prep for Kona is going this year, what it's like balancing the roles of a professional triathlete, husband and relatively new father, we'll talk about the Tim and Rinny You Tube Channel is going, and how his and Rinny's races have gone this year.

Thanks to last week's guests, Simone Cordrey-Cotter to talk about Rudy Project's "Podium One" and Alison Freeman of D3 Multisport who talked about how to train for and race in hot conditions.  If you missed it, go back and listen to episode #134.  Hopefully you are fast enough to win a Boost 01 helmet, but if you're not get a Boost 01 like me and you'll be faster.  Being fast on the bike might not be enough in hot conditions.  We had lots of great tips on how to be ready for your next hot race.

Announcement:

  • Last Friday was Bill's birthday and we did not give him a birthday shout out.  Bill, this is your belated birthday shout out!  Not that you care because you are having a blast in Canada Salmon fishing!
  • Last week we gave a shout out to Kim Miller.  There is no "Kim" Miller.  There is however an "Amy" Miller.  I have no good explanation for how that happened.  It was in the show notes incorrectly despite having previously connected with Amy on Facebook and Instagram.  She sent me a very nice message last Monday bringing the error to my attention and immediately I had a flashback to the thought occurring to me on Saturday night.  It's funny how the subconscious knew there was something wrong when it hadn't occurred to me consciously.   

 

Interview: 

Timothy O’Donnell is one of the world’s most successful and experienced American long-course triathletes. As a professional, he has earned 50+ podium finishes including over 22 wins at major events throughout the world. Among the wins are nine Ironman 70.3 victories, three 140.6 wins, and six Armed Forces National Championships. At the IRONMAN World Championship in Kona, Hawaii, Timothy finished 6th in 2016, 3rd in 2015, and 5th in 2013, finishing as top American in 2013 & 2015. In 2013, he tied the existing American IRONMAN record with an 8:01:32 victory at IRONMAN Brazil. In 2015 at IRONMAN Brazil, he completed his fastest IRONMAN to date at 7:55:56. He was the IRONMAN 70.3 US Pro Champion in 2012 and the IRONMAN US Pro Champion in 2011.

 

O’Donnell’s sporting career began when he joined his first swim team at the age of five in Roseville, CA. He began to shine in the pool during his high school years while attending Wyoming Seminary Prep (SEM) in Kingston, Pennsylvania. At SEM O’Donnell was captain of the varsity swim team, set multiple school records and earned repeated district championships and all-state honors.

O’Donnell then attended the United States Naval Academy (BS Naval Architecture, 2003) where he swam on the Varsity team for two seasons before fully committing to the sport of triathlon. As a triathlete, O’Donnell led the Naval Academy Men’s Team to two US National Triathlon Championship titles. He attended UC Berkeley (MSEng Ocean Engineering, 2005) as a Navy Ensign during which time he won the 2003 U.S. Under-23 National Championships and his first of six consecutive Armed Forces Triathlon Championships.

In 2007 O’Donnell was assigned to the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado. He earned spots on the US National Team and World Championships Team in 2007 and 2008,was the ITU Long Distance World Champion in 2009, and was named USAT’s Non-Drafting Triathlete of the Year in 2009, 2010, and 2015.

Upcoming Interviews:

  • Mark Fleming from Ikor Labs is going to join us to talk about the status of CBD oil and triathlon.  A lot of triathletes (pro and age groupers) are using cbd to help with inflammation and recovery.  WADA and USADA removed CBD from the banned substances list.  If you are using a CBD product from a reliable source like iKOR labs, you don't have to worry about being testing positive for a banned or illegal substance.  Hemp (which CBD is extracted from) has less than .3% 3/10s of 1 percent THC.
  • Ryan Petry - 2nd overall at Haute Route Rockies.  We'll be talking to him about he trained for the race and his race strategy.
  • Cliff Simms - co-founder of Retul and now working with Specialized.  We're going to talk to him about the 3D Retul technology and where the product roadmap is heading and how it can help you.

Jul 15, 2018

Our interviews this week - that's right we have two interviews this week.  Interview #1 is with Simone Cordrey-Cotter to talk about Rudy Project's "Podium One" and how they are rewarding the fastest N. American Ironman finishers.  We also have coach Alison Freeman of D3 Multisport joining us today to talk about how to train for and race in hot conditions.  It's too late for our hot June and early July races, but in the northern hemisphere late July and August..even September can deliver some super-hot conditions.  We're going to tell you how to get ready!

Thanks to last week's guest, Strava Co-founder Michael Horvath.  If you missed it, go back and listen to episode #133.

Interview 1:  Simone Cordrey-Cotter is the marketing and PR manager with Rudy Project North America and she happens to live here locally with Khem and me.  She has been a long-time friend of the show and a former guest.  We get to chat with Simone about a new program they have titled Podium One.  Rudy Project is going to be rewarding the fastest Ironman athletes in N. America with Rudy's fastest race helmet and glasses.  Let's go to that interview right now.  It's a short discussion, so don't go anywhere.  You'll want to stick around for our feature interview to follow.  https://www.rudyprojectna.com/pages/project-podium

Transition:  Pretty cool reward if you are a super-fast Ironman age-grouper.  The Boost 1 is a sweet looking helmet and Tralyx sunglasses are sweet as well!  If you don't think you are fast enough to win a free helmet and glasses, well don't fret.  We have a discount code for you that's going to get you 30% of the way to owning a pair.  Use the code MHE 30 at checkout. 

Okay, let's get serious about hot races shall we?  We have Alison Freeman of D3 Multisport to talk to us about training for and racing in hot conditions.  Let's go to the feature interview now and we'll be back with you after you are a more informed athlete!

  • Khem and Rich discussion on training and racing in the heat.
  • Without Limits Productions' Boulder Peak race
    • How was Old Stage after doing Pikes Peak on Wednesday and Squaw Pass on Saturday (the day before the Peak)?
    • Jenn Finley's friend and first time Olympic distance racer and podium placer Kim Miller
  • Rip Laces
    • These are a quick lace for getting your running shoes fast in transition.  You know how crazy obsessed I am with fast transitions and Rip laces perform terrifically.
    • I first was introduced to them at the Sansego camp with Craig Alexander and Matt Smith.  Crowie gave all the campers a welcome bag with samples of some of Crowie's favorite products.  They included a sample of Hot Shot and custom Rip Laces, among other things.  Now custom Riplaces are not something just anyone can get.  If you go to the website, you can pick your color, but you cannot order custom riplaces.  It was fun to not only be one of the very few people racing in riplaces, but to be sporting the Sansego custom branded ones at that.  We're going to put a pin in the topic of custom riplaces for a few minutes while I describe what these are.
    • Description - the lace is called a "bungee" and it looks and performs a lot like a hair band.  You thread one folded end of the band lace through one eyelet of the pair and the other folded end through the other side of the eyelet pair.  You can order bands in a variety of sizes or what I have is the variety size pack.  A typical running shoe will have about 7 pairs of eyelets, so you only need 7.   But the variety pack comes with 5 different sizes and 10 bands bungees of each size.
    • You then have these things called "cores", but they look like small rectangular badges with slots to snap the bungee loop ends on each the sides of the core. There are 4 different types of cores (skinnies, olyvia, mini skull/crossbones). 
    • As I mentioned earlier, each the cores and the bungees can be ordered in a variety of colors and the core in one of three forms.  Well I love the Sansego ones so much, I decided to buy another set for another pair of running shoes.  So I picked out the bungee and core colors that would make my shoes pop.   When they arrived, the good folks at Riplaces included a few samples of custom cores with the MHE logo and they look awesome.  They did them in both the skull/crossbones and the skinnies.
    • Khem, they are going to make custom MHE cores for us and guess what?  I'm ordering a set for each you and Bill. 
    • Guess what else?  They are going to create a special link for our listeners to order their own. 

Upcoming interviews:

  • I mentioned a few weeks ago that I saw Timothy O'Donnell at the CU Sports Medicine and Performance Center.  He's clearly working with some of the best resources around.  We are going to be catching up with T.O. to talk about how his season is going, what's going on in his training.
  • Mark Fleming from Ikor Labs is going to join us to talk about the status of CBD oil and triathlon.  A lot of triathletes (pro and age groupers) are using cbd where available to help with recovery.  CBD does not get you high but has several health and recovery properties and benefits.  Craig Sweeney from Ikor Labs was helping SAG on the Sansego rides and I got to chat with him a bit.  We are going to get some of the latest on legislation, WADA and USADA stances on CBD.

Jul 8, 2018

Our interviews this week with Strava Co-founder Michael Horvath.  Bill and I caught up with Michael about 6 weeks ago.  We released the interview on 303Radio, but thought it would be a good interview to share with the MHE audience.

Thanks to last week's guests,  Board Certified Specialist in Sports Dietetics (CSSD) and Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN), Heidi Strickler.  I think you'll learn a bit from the interview.  If you missed it, go back and listen to episode #132.

Michael Horvath, as you will hear shortly, graduated from Harvard with a degree in Economics.  While at Harvard he was on the Crew team, which really is a big influencer in the story you are about to hear.  What you will not hear in the interview is that Michael went on to get his PhD in Economics at Northwestern University.  He co-founded Strava and served as CEO from 2009-2013, then became Chairman and President 2014-2017 and now serves on the Board.

I think the rest of the Michael Horvath story is better told by Michael himself.  Here's the interview.  We'll catch you on the other side.

  • Revisit the Michael Horvath interview briefly and discussion on favorite Strava features.
    • Non premium
      • One of the things that seems most understood are the Privacy Settings that are available and how they impact functionality.  I have to admit that I was not too familiar with the Privacy settings until doing some research before the interview.  https://www.strava.com/settings/privacy
      • I did a group ride last week and one of the guys forgot to start his Strava recording until half way into the ride.  I don't him not to worry, that I could add the activity with "Add friend that didn't record". He was blown away.  It's super easy.  The person who did successfully recorded just goes to their activity after completing it.  Click edit and below the Activity Privacy Settings, you'll see Add Friends to this Ride or Run or whatever.
    • Premium
      • Beacon which is great if you have family members who are training or concerned about your safety when training.
      • Live segments are pretty cool  There is a segment on Deer Creek that pops up for me when I pass Valley Rd. just after the dirt parking lot.  My watch beeps at me and I get a "Bill Plock Go!" message.
      • Filtered Leaderboards.  If I don't like the Leaderboard standards, I can filter out all the younger and skinnier guys.
  • Haute Route
    • Did it have a Tour-like feel?

Upcoming Interviews

  • Alison Freeman on training and racing in the heat
  • We will have Simone Cordrey Cotter joining us to talk about Rudy Project Project Podium

Our interview this week is with Board Certified Specialist in Sports Dietetics (CSSD) and Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN), Heidi Strickler.  Food is on my mind a lot these days and where I get my macro nutrients is something I consider carefully.  Like many of you, I'm trying to get the best quality carbohydrate, fat and protein.  I'm a meat eater, but have been experimenting more and more with plant based protein.  Heidi is going to help all of us better understand how to do that successfully.

Thanks to last week's guests, Craig Alexander and Matt Smith on the Boulder Sansego training camp.  I learned a lot at the camp.  I think you'll learn a bit from the interview.  If you missed it, go back and listen to episode #131.  Really recommend doing a training camp like this if you haven't.

 

Heidi is a Board Certified Specialist in Sports Dietetics (CSSD) and Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) who comes to eNRG Performance from Seattle, Washington.

 

Heidi graduated with a triple degree in Dietetics, Nutrition in Sports & Exercise, and Exercise Science, from Seattle Pacific University in Seattle, Washington. She completed her Dietetic Internship in Illinois, and moved back to Seattle in early 2014 to begin her career as a Registered Dietitian.

 

Heidi has spent most of her professional career at Experience Momentum, a functional wellness clinic in Lynnwood, Washington, where she worked with clients in both nutrition and fitness coaching. Heidi specializes in sports and performance nutrition, oncology nutrition, sustainability, and plant-based eating. She works with high school, collegiate, and adult team sports, CrossFit athletes, and endurance athletes, including runners, triathletes, cyclists, swimmers, and obstacle course racers. As an endurance athlete herself, Heidi’s primary focus is with endurance athletes.

 

It was Heidi’s experience as an athlete that led her to nutrition. An interest in the human body and physical performance inspired her initial plan to pursue a career in physical therapy. However, once she began competing in college, she became fascinated by the connection between nutrition and performance, and changed the direction of her studies.

 

Heidi is an avid, passionate and competitive athlete and outdoors enthusiast. She began playing soccer at the age of three, which carried her into college on a scholarship at Seattle Pacific University. She transitioned to running collegiate track and cross country during her junior year after discovering the world of long distance running. After college, Heidi took her love for running and passion for the outdoors to the trails of her hometown in Salt Lake City, where she picked up ultra-running and trail racing, and remains highly competitive on the trails today.
