Welcome to episode #53 of the Mile High Endurance Podcast. This week we have Sarah Neilson of South Suburban Parks and Rec to talk about the Indoor Reverse Triathlon they have coming up in January. You can get more information at https://www.ssprd.org/tryathlon
We also have another listener recommendation by the name of Fred Jorgesen. Fred is a local ultra-runner hoping to be the oldest person to do the ultra marathon Grand Slam. The Grand Slam of Ultrarunning™ award is recognition for those who complete four of the oldest 100 mile trail runs in the U.S. The "Slam" consists of officially finishing the Western States 100 Mile Endurance Run, the Vermont 100 Mile Endurance Run, the Leadville Trail 100 Mile Run and the Wasatch Front 100 Mile Endurance Run all in the same year.
Before we get into today's interview, I want to thank Marc Evans again for talking about his book Triathletes In Motion. Marc Evans, as you heard, is a true pioneer of the sport of triathlon. Marc reminded us that there is more to your training than heart rate, power, running miles or time in the saddle and pool. His book Triathlete's in Motion covers a lot of ground, things like nutrition, cardio vascular fitness, and all of the traditional things we think of with training. His emphasis with the work is on flexibility, balance, proprioception and technique. In the book are self-assessments you can perform to identify your weakest link from a bio-mechanics perspective and then how to address that weakest link. As he suggested in the interview, you want to address one weak link at a time and progress to the next one. Marc is now focused on product design with his company Human Kinetics and www.humankinetics.com. Please reach out to Marc if you enjoyed the interview and let him know or put a comment on Facebook and Mile High Endurance page.
