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. ​The 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.

1:05:18 Wrap up and upcoming episodes

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.
