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 to Episode #184 of the Mile High Endurance podcast. You are listening to your weekly connection to coaches, experts and pro athletes to help you reach your endurance goals. We are your hosts coach Rich Soares and 303 Chief Bill Plock. Thanks for joining us for another week of endurance interviews and discussion.

This week we have Darryl Griffiths of Shotz Nutrition to talk about sweat testing, hydration and fueling.  I'm really excited about this topic.  This has been one of the areas that has challenged me personally throughout my history with longer distance races.  I feel like after working with Inigo San Milan and Bob Seebohar, combined with field testing, I was finally able to get the information I needed to not guess.

Thanks to last week's discussion guest TO and the breakdown of Ironman Boulder.  We are looking forward to seeing him in Kona.

Welcome to Episode #183 of the Mile High Endurance podcast. You are listening to your weekly connection to coaches, experts and pro athletes to help you reach your endurance goals. We are your hosts coach Rich Soares and 303 Chief Bill Plock. Thanks for joining us for another week of endurance interviews and discussion.

This week we have a really interesting discussion for you.  Think about the people that have left a legacy in triathlon.  Who is the first person who comes to mind?  This week we are sharing a panel discussion with 5 athletes who are creating legacies as they continue to race.  We have Kyle and Brent Pease (the Pease brothers), Chris McDonald, Craig Alexander (Crowie), and Andrea Ramos.  The event was hosted by Newton Running and owner Jerry Lee.  It was facilitated by Andrew Maxwell and the central discussion was about what legacy they want to leave in the sport.  It's personal for each and we hope you will feel a connection to one or more of these stories.

Thanks to last week's guest TO and the breakdown of Ironman Boulder.  We are looking forward to seeing him in Kona.

What is the best way to recover from hard workouts?  Is it a recovery drink?  Massage?  Foam roller?  Is there a big difference between eating egg whites vs. chicken nuggets?  This week we are talking to Christie Aschwanden, author of the book "Good To Go - What the athlete in all of us can learn from the strange science of recovery".

Interview Introduction:

A little over a month ago, I went t the Rocky Mountain Tri Club Author Night.  Christie Aschwanden and Alex Hutchinson did a presentation and then did book signings.  As I listened to Christie describe her book and her thoughts on the efficacy of products and services intended to aid with recovery, I was really intrigued.  I bought the book, started reading and knew this would be a great topic.  Listen, we all want the have the latest advantage and the fear of being left out.  If everyone else is using Endurox, I should be using Endurox.

The recovery market includes goods and services ranging from drinks, bars, and protein shakes to compression clothing, foam rollers, icepacks, cryotherapy, mass, laser therapy, electrical muscle stimulators, saunas, float tanks, meditation videos, sleep trackers, high tech pajamas, and of course beds.  Do these things work?  I'm I wasting my money?  My time?

Christie Aschwanden, author of "Good To Go - What the athlete in all of us can learn from the strange science of recovery".  Christie 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.

Endurance Trivia:

 

What is the most effective recovery modality

  1. Sleep
  2. Foam Rolling
  3. Protein shakes

 

Other

  1. On sleep - without question the single best mode of recovery.  Get 8 hours a night and everything will be alright.  Listen to Episode 118 with Dr Kirk Parsley.
  2. On anti-inflammatories - the book highlights studies and opinions that lean toward letting the bodies natural healing process take place and don't interfere.  If you have some swelling and pain, that's the body bringing building materials to repair damage via the blood stream.
  3. On Massage - 110 - Shona Halson, Australian recovery expert "there's no evidence to say that doing massage will clear lactate - it just doesn't exist"
  4. On Foam Rolling - p113 - The idea behind foam rollers is that they loosen the muscles and address adhesions that form between layers of fascia. 
    1. Do you need to be careful taking supplements and knowing what's in them?
    2. Are salt tablets needed?
    3. Clinical trials.gov
    4. Supplement 411
  5. On Supplements
  6.
