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.

Post Interview Discussion

  • Mikael
    • Bon Jovi
    • Two thresholds
      • Below first vt they stay level and stable (easy, 1 and 2)
      • Between first and second threshold, lactate levels start to increase, but if you stay at a steady pace, the LT will stabilize and not increase (moderate)  at the higher end you could be doing hard work; this is also sweet spot just below the 2nd threshold
      • Above 2nd threshold; at a steady pace the lactate increases and continues to accumulate
    • 45-70 minutes at 2nd threshold
  • Yokohama - US Women Sweep podium https://303triathlon.com/podium-sweep-in-yokohama-highlights-great-weekend-for-usa-triathlon/
    • Three Americans on the podium and a third straight World Triathlon Series (WTS) victory for Katie Zaferes (Santa Cruz, Calif.) made it an incredible weekend for the USA Triathlon women in Yokohama. Summer Rappaport (Thornton, Colo.) earned silver for the second WTS medal of her career, while Taylor Spivey (Redondo Beach, Calif.) continued her impressive 2019 season with a bronze medal to help the red, white and blue round out the podium. It was the fourth U.S. podium sweep in ITU World Triathlon Series history and the first since 2016.

Endurance Trivia:

  1. The "grey" zone in the article Training in the Grey Zone" is referring to a zone 3 in a chart of:
    1. 3 zones
    2. 4 zones
    3. 5 zones
    4. 7 zones
    1. 1 zones
    2. 2 zones
    3. 4 zones
    4. 5 zones
  2. An easy hour in Zone __ will always provide a better benefit than a moderately hard Zone 3 effort for that same hour.

You want to create a schedule that allows you to run easy days in Zone 2 to illicit a recovery response, increase aerobic capacity, and increase fatty acid usage. The latter is a major benefit of Zone 2 running, true aerobic running will make you a better fat burner. Zone 3 running will leave you burning a mixture of carbs and fat, never making you super efficient at being a carb burner or fat burner!

 

"What's New in the 303":

https://303triathlon.com/kara-goucher-nearly-collides-with-mountain-lion-on-morning-training-run/

Goucher set out around 8:45 a.m. local time on Monday, May 6, toward the trail systems west of Boulder. As she passed alongside a parked truck outside a residential construction site on Sunshine Canyon Drive—still a Boulder road, not a trail—a mountain lion sprinted across the front of the vehicle. The two were inches away when they saw each other, Goucher told Runner’s World.

https://303cycling.com/how-we-talk-about-drivers-hitting-cyclists/

“a perfect day to ride,” she says—and the 46-year-old triathlete was travelling east on Nelson Road, a straight, treeless rural route roughly nine miles north of town. After signaling with her arm, she started to turn left onto North 65th Avenue, a quiet stretch of pavement where she would be able to worry less about traffic. She never made it.

Midturn, “I bounced off the grill of a brand-new Ford F-150,” she recalled. “I flew through the air and landed on the westbound shoulder.” According to a story that ran later that day in the local newspaper, the Boulder Daily Camera, Willerton made her turn in front of the driver, Stephen Gray, then 62, who was traveling in the same direction and hit her from behind. Willerton never lost consciousness, but she suffered six broken ribs, a triple pelvic fracture, chipped teeth, and a collapsed lung, among other injuries.

 

Upcoming Interviews: 

  • On 303Radio you will hear the interview with Justin Blalog on the film Shared Territory: Gravel Bike Across Iceland
  • Debbie Potts, host of The Whole Athlete Podcast has published her most recent episode on chronic stress and performance.  I was honored to be a guest on her podcast an recommend you check our discussion about the causes, signs and affects of chronic stress.
  • Coach Mikael Eriksson of Scientific Triathlon and "That Triathlon Show" podcast is joining us about training zones and how to make sure they are accurate and current.  With the context of the training (energy zones) we are going to talk about the importance of training volume in different training zones to achieve the right progressive overload and adaptations, and the many issues that can come from not executing the right training.
  • Christie Aschwanden, author of "Good To Go".  Christie Aschwanden is science writer for FiveThirtyEight. She is also health columnist for The Washington Post.   She is a frequent contributor to The New York Times, a contributing editor for Runner’s World and a former contributing writer for Bicycling.   A lifetime athlete, Christie has raced in Europe and North America on the Team Rossignol Nordic ski racing squad.  She was on the CU bicycle racing team along with Tyler Hamilton back in the day as well.

  • Alex Hutchinson's book Endure about all aspects of endurance and Christie's book on all aspects of recovery.
  • The each gave a 2 minute overview of their books (see 303triathon Facebook live post) and then took 15 minutes each to ask questions about each other's books.
  • At the end they both got into a debate about hydration, which was topic common to both of their books.  Christie is a proponent of drink to thirst and being keenly aware of your thirst sensation and triggers.
  • Both were skeptical of the commercialism of endurance and recovery products in the market
  • I asked Christie about HRV as a reliable predictor of recovery and the accuracy of the commercial products in the market.  Bottom line is that it's not very reliable in her opinion, but you can add it to other methods of assessing your recovery.

Announcing USA Triathlon's Youth Scholarship Program 

Dear Coaches, I’m proud to announce a youth scholarship program that USA Triathlon and the USA Triathlon Foundation will launch tomorrow in an effort to not only grow overall youth participation in multisport, but also to reduce barriers to entry for underserved youth. After kicking off the program with a special month-long promotion in May, we will continue to accept donations and distribute scholarships throughout the year. Your participation is important, as we need your help to identify youth athletes who may be scholarship candidates.

During the month of May, for every USA Triathlon adult annual membership newly purchased or renewed, or for every current membership not set to expire that is extended by one year, the USA Triathlon Foundation will donate one youth digital membership to a deserving child. (Youth digital memberships include all of the standard USA Triathlon Youth Membership benefits, but without the delivery of printed materials by mail.)

Our goal during this month-long “Buy One, Give One” initiative is to inspire 10,000 youth digital membership donations, which can be distributed to youth throughout the year. The scholarships awarded will be needs-based.

Beyond May, the Foundation will maintain this youth membership donation page, where anyone can donate a membership for $10.

As we roll out this initiative, I’m asking for your help in the following ways:

Help us reach deserving youth: If you coach youth triathletes who may be candidates for this scholarship, or if you personally know an aspiring young athlete, please share this application form with them: https://forms.gle/r9MEn6TG4BQHHSqA9. Applicants will hear back from USA Triathlon within two weeks. Please note that if the applicant is planning to use the youth membership for an upcoming race, he or she must apply at least 30 days in advance of the race date.

Encourage participation in May: This is an excellent opportunity to engage not only parents of youth triathletes, but also USA Triathlon adult members who may not otherwise be involved with our youth programming. Please share our press release about the “Buy One, Give One” promotion, which will be published on usatriathlon.org tomorrow morning. Encourage your network of triathletes to renew their memberships in May (if their membership does not expire in May, that’s okay — it will simply be extended for one year past the current expiration date).

  • Coach Mikael Eriksson of Scientific Triathlon and "That Triathlon Show" podcast is joining us about training zones and how to make sure they are accurate and current.  With the context of the training (energy zones) we are going to talk about the importance of training volume in different training zones to achieve the right progressive overload and adaptations, and the many issues that can come from not executing the right training.
  • Christie Aschwanden, author of "Good To Go".  Christie Aschwanden is science writer for FiveThirtyEight. She is also health columnist for The Washington Post.   She is a frequent contributor to The New York Times, a contributing editor for Runner’s World and a former contributing writer for Bicycling.  She is co-host of EMERGING FORM, a podcast about the creative process.
