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 #98 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 interviews and discussion.  Our interview today is with coach Jim Vance, author of The Complete Guide to Running with Power, among other projects..

 

Last week's guest

Thanks to last week's guest Dr. Don Rose for taking us from average to epic with his book entitled Average to Epic, A Mid-liferes Guide to Endurance Sports.  If you missed it, go back and check it out.

 

30 Second Ad

Our show brought to you by 303 Triathlon and 303 Cycling are your resource for news and events on triathlon and cycling in Colorado.  303Radio is your news podcast.

 

Be sure to check out the interview with Bryan Williams who broke the FKT for the 490 mile Colorado Trail Run in a time of 8 days and 30 minutes.  Bryan takes us through the planning for the epic journey, route, daily mileage, fueling, and more.  If you think running a 50-80 miles a day for over a week can result in hallucinations, you are right - go check it out at 303Triathlon.com

 

Discussion Teasers

We are going to get right into the interview in a couple of minutes, but before we do let's check in with Khem Suthiwan and Bill Plock - how's it going guys?

 

Khem, let's start with you - what are we going to talk about after the interview?

 

Bill, what "hippie haps" do folks want to stick around for?

 

I can't wait to talk about Bandito Cross and what a crazy fun "not really racing" event that was.  Anything involving bikes, beer and bacon is something you do not want to miss.

 

I also want to share a documentary recommendation that is a must see for anyone who is concerned with fair competition in athletic competition.  In "Icarus", Bryan Fogel, is the man behind this expose account of Russia’s state-sponsored doping program.  Fogel is also a keen amateur cyclist and, in the wake of the Lance Armstrong scandal, set out to prove just how easy it was to evade cycling’s creaking testing system by competing chemically enhanced in the same prestigious amateur race, Haute Route, that he had struggled in the year before. The plan was to boost his best time, pass with flying colours through the urine tests required of all competitors. Hollywood could not engineer twists and turns and incredible revelations that unfold.  We'll talk about that after the interview.

 

Interview Setup

I'm willing to bet that 99% of the listeners of this show have trained with a heart rate monitor and knows something about heart rate training zones.  I'm sure the majority of you also train with a bike power meter.  What you may be less familiar with is running with a power meter.  Why would you want to train with a running power meter?  What does a running power meter measure?  What metrics does it provide?  How do they work?  How do the various power dimensions relate to each other?  How can you use it to manage your season?  Know your taper is working?  If you want to know the answer to any of these questions, you are going to love this interview with the guy who literally wrote the book on it!

 

Let's get into the interview with coach Jim Vance!
