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. ‚ÄčThe 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.

  • 1:16:25 Upcoming Episodes 

Welcome to Episode #52 of the Mile High Endurance podcast. Mile High Enduranceis 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 excited that co-host and coach Khem Suthiwan is back this week.

I'm honored that Marc Evans would join us this week and shine a bright light on how to unlock potential performance through attention to training your biomechanics. Marc Evans is the foremost expert on the subject, author of Triathlete's in Motion, President and founder of Me3 Marc Evans Endurance Education, and CEOof Sports Engineering Group. Honestly you don't want to miss this.

Before we get into today's interview, I want to thank Sherpa John Lacroix for joining us last week to tell us about the HPRS. As I said in the wrap up, I was really taken by surprise by Sherpa John and race courses he designs. It's rare to hear that much thought go into making a great course, let alone a portfolio of great and HARD courses. Intentionally very, very hard. Fascinating. Be sure to check out the Fat Ass series and member ship at www.humanpotentialrunning.com.

If we go back two episodes to the Meredith Kessler, you may recall our discussion on verifying pre-race hydration with the use of "pee sticks". Well Khem, I went ahead and placed an order for some on Amazon and they arrived this week [arrive Thursday]. We are going to have to test these bad boys out. Here's what I bought and what they do.

Okay, that's enough of what is going on before and after today's interview, let's get on with today's interview:

As you may recall from a few weeks ago on episode #48 we had David Warden on the show to talk about bio-mechanics. During that interview, David Warden mentioned coaching advice he received from Marc Evans while in a swim session. Marc advised David on his stroke rate that unlocked his swim speed. Marc Evans is the author of Triathlete's in Motion, which I have referred to on a number of occasions. I've owned a copy of Triathlete's in Motion for a while now. I heard an interview with Marc shortly after the book was published and remember for the first time realizing there was this whole new dimension of training. The ah-ha that I remember from listening to that interview was performance that can be unlocked by having optimal bio-mechanics and appropriate muscle recruitment to achieve optimal efficiency and injury avoidance.
