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.

Welcome

Welcome to Episode #97 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.  We're your hosts Rich Soares, Khem Suthiwan and Bill Plock and we are glad you are joining us for another week of endurance education.  Our interview today is with Don Rose, author of Average to Epic, A Mid-Lifers Guide to Endurance Sports and Lifelong Fitness.

Last week's guest

Thanks to last week's guest Tim Hola who helped us do our Kona wrap up and shared some of the tips of what has helped him with his pro-rivaling swim performance and a 9 hour and 54 minute Kona performance.

Our show brought to you by 303 Triathlon and 303 Cycling are your resource for news and information on triathlon and cycling in Colorado.  303Radio is your news podcast and we are covering the news on Kona all next week.  Be sure to go to 303Triathlon and check out all the coverage of Kona.

Interview Setup

We are tweaking our format a bit this week.  We are going to go pretty much straight into this week's guest interview and then join you after the interview for the interview debrief and endurance discussion and coaching tips.

As we mention in the welcome, our interview is with author and endurance athlete Don Rose.  Don has his undergraduate degree in biology and PhD in Chemistry.  He became an endurance sport enthusiast as a mid-lifer and has combined his expertise and learnings as an Ironman, cyclist and runner into a DIY guide for any endurance athlete to benefit from.  It will help you explore a number of endurance sports, including how to select equipment and deal with the excuses you might have for not trying them.  It will help you figure out how to fuel your body, understand a training plan, and understand your motivations.

Without further delay, let's get into the interview with Dr. Don Rose and we'll talk to you after the interview.

Host Discussion

  • Rich's short debrief of the interview
  • Bill we'll start with you, how was your week and what's new with you?
  • Khem, what's new with you this week?
  • Remembering Terry Laughlin, Total Immersion and former guest

Terry Laughlin, who created the technique-focused swim training system known as “Total Immersion,” passed away Friday, Oct. 20, after complications with prostate cancer. Laughlin was 66 years old.

Laughlin is survived by his wife, Alice, and daughters Fiona, Carrie and Betsy. The family announced his death Monday:

“After living with metastatic prostate cancer for two years, Terry passed away on Friday, October 20th, 2017, of complications related to his condition.

“He displayed his characteristic optimism, wit, and passion for life—and swimming—until the very end. Our family is in mourning and we ask that we be given time and space to grieve a beloved husband and father privately.”

Terry talks about swimming like some people describe an Italian sports car or fine art, or a food describes their favorite dessert.

#62 - Interview with Terry about the book Total Immersion and what the Total Immersion methodology is all about.

#82 - We are going to talk to Terry about the importance of bi-lateral breathing, a convincing explanation of why it is possible and the opportunity to take your swim stroke to a new level.

#71 - Terry Laughlin, Chief Optimist Officer at Total Immersion.  Terry is coming back on the show to talk about his latest blog article "What's your best stroke rate? - How I found mine.  And why it's still evolving."  We'll talk about the article and you'll be sure to pick up insightful information about how to not only find your ideal stroke rate, but also learn how to reduce your SPL (to monitor stroke length).  Most of the interview is about how to help you swim faster with less effort, but we also talk about some of the swim clinics they offer in great locations around the world.
