Mile High Endurance Podcast

Mile High Endurance Podcast 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. ‚ÄčThe objective of the Mile High Endurance 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 #45 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.   I'm your host Rich Soares and I'm here with co-host Khem Suthiwan.   We have Mary Beth Ellis on the show today and we'll be talking to her in just a bit.

  • [00:00] Intro Khem Suthiwan
  • [09:30] Mary Beth Ellis with Khem
  • [43:12] Marathon Plan and Upcoming Guests
  • [55:01] Wrap Up

It was great to get Mary Beth back on the show again.  She's been really great about sharing herself with us and as you heard we'll check in with her from time to time and see how she's doing with team Sutto and the next chapter of her adventure.  One of the things that MB had mentioned in the interview were the risks of racing on antibiotics.  I thought I'd do a little research of my own on the topic.  I found an article that talks about the side effects of exercising on antibiotics, including increased risk of tendon injuries, diarrhea, Cardiac arrhythmias, photosensitivity, and generally decreased athletic performance.  The article is posted on the Resources page of the Mile High Endurance website. 

In the intro I mention that I would provide a summary of the marathon training plan that I wrote for myself and that's what I'm going to do here.  [Description of plan]  So that's that plan that got me to this point.  We'll see how next weekend goes.  I'd like send a big thank you to my friend Kathleen Romalia who has been running with me the past few weeks.

Upcoming guests and shows:

  • Next week we'll be recording from NYC before the marathon.  I'll be interviewing one of my friends and fellow MBA Opens Doors runners, Bronwyn Morrissey.
  • One of my beliefs about running, is that you should take steps to prevent injury or you will ultimately end up with an overuse injury or worse.  Another belief is that people should and can enjoy running.   I talk to a lot of people who don't enjoy or don't think their body is designed to run.  Hogwash!  I would argue that many people who say that running is too hard or they are not "able to" run, that they could if they had the right balance, strength and form.  All of these things can be assessed and trained.  To talk to us about strength and balance assessments to see where an athlete may have imbalances in functional strength or weak stabilizing muscles, which can lead to injury.  We have an interview with Dr. Nate Williams of Performance Sports Chiropractic coming up.  Dr. Williams has been helping me rehab some tight spots during my training.  He and I have a similar philosophy.
  • David Warden on form and technique training in the off season.  About David
  • Bob Seebohar on Metabolic Efficiency and his book on the subject

So lots of great stuff coming up.  If you haven't already liked the MHE Podcast on Facebook or followed @milehighpodcast - go do it now.  I put posts out about new episodes, but also requests for discussion.  I'll announce upcoming guests on Facebook and ask for you to pose your questions.  I'll try to get those answered for you in the interview.

Well I guess we should wrap up.  We'll be with you next week from the Big Apple.  Until then - stay tuned, stay informed, and enjoy the triathlon journey!
