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.

Interview take-aways, upcoming interviews and wrap up

With the scheduling of the interview this week and trying to figure out when to record the intro for this week's episode, we were not able to get Khem Suthiwn with us this week.  She'll be back next week.  Khem, wish you were here with us.

Interview setup:

  • We brought Amanda up a couple of weeks ago when we were talking about the top minds on the topic of swimming.  Bill, you brought her up in the conversation and I wrote down a note to reach out to her.  We sent her an invite and she graciously agreed to join us.
  • We brainstormed topics and came up with metabolic efficiency, avoiding overtraining, and swimming coaching.  We pulled off our first Twitter Poll and actually got some good play on the poll.  Here's what you told us.
  • Twitter poll, results
    • 29% - Swim Technique
    • 13% - Over Training
    • 42% - Metabolic Efficiency
    • 16% - Race Strategy
  • Needless to say we decided to spend most of our time talking about metabolic efficiency/eating for health and swim coaching
  • Dr. Amanda Stevens-Sadler is a professional Ironman triathlete and consultant focusing on sports medicine and general health and wellness.
  • As a professional triathlete, Dr. Stevens-Sadler competes on the Ironman World Circuit.
  • I don’t want to steal too much from the interview.  We'll get to know Amanda and her background in just a minute.
    • Dr. Stevens-Sadler, her husband, Randy, and their whippet, Dash, currently live in Arizona
    • During downtime or recovery, she enjoys reading and watching movies and always seems to have a project to work on.
    • An Enid, Oklahoma, native, Dr. Stevens-Sadler earned her undergraduate degree at Texas Christian University and later graduated from the University of Oklahoma School of Medicine.
  • Dr. Stevens-Sadler enjoys and encourages a healthy lifestyle and is an expert in a range of topics, including sports medicine, injury prevention, fitness, nutrition and preventive medicine.
