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 #99 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.  If you think running a 50-80 miles a day for over a week can result in hallucinations, you are right.  Our interview today is with Bryan Williams, who owns the fastest known time for the 490 mile Colorado Trail Run with a time of 8 days and 30 minutes.

 

Last week's guest

Thanks to last week's guest coach Jim Vance on his book Run With Power, The Complete Guide to Running with Power.  We answered questions like 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?

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?

 

What are we going to talk about after the interview with Bryan?

 

Interview Setup

The them question of today's show is "what are your limits?"

 

There are some endurance feats that are so epic you can't help but be inspired.  For most of us, running a marathon or completing and Ironman seems like a challenge that takes us to our personal limits.  In a few minutes, we are going to the guy that did his first marathon seven years ago and just this past few weeks, Bryan not only ran 8 times the distance a marathon, but he did it over terrain that took him over 13,500 feet in some cases.  We'll talk about those who inspired him, how he planned for the event, what his daily schedule was like, how he fueled, how h slept and more. 

 

Let's get into the interview with coach Bryan Williams.

Rich's Topics

  • Thanks for turning me on to the Barkley's marathon.  Brady had originally made me aware of it, but I'd never seen the documentary until this past week.
  • It was exciting to watch the NYC Marathon and watch Shalane Flanagan win commandingly
  • Our guest Bryan Williams ran the CTR 7 years after his first marathon.  The distance of the CTR was literally 20 times the distance of the marathon.  In the book "The Way of the Seal", Mark Divine writes about your "20X Factor".  The concept is that with the right mental training, we are capable of 20X what we may initially believe we are capable of.
  • A number of things game together for me in a flash of inspiration.  In the last week or so, I read Bob Seebohar's article on NeuroHalo Sport and brain stimulation to enhance power and learning.  In the article Bob writes "My experience with technology and coaching, as well as some creativity, gave me a very unique perspective on what we should do with the Halo system. My gut feeling with any performance-enhancing device is that you must factor in placebo early, as athletes respond to nearly anything if they believe enough. "  I read Joanna Zeiger's book on the Champion's Mindset.  And just this morning continued listening to the TrainerRoad podcast with Matt Fitzgerald on How Bad Do You Want It.  The question I want to pose is, to what degree do you think the power of the mind can shape our training, the size of our goals and our race day performance?

Upcoming Interviews

  • Geoff Hanson, head triathlon coach at Mesa State University on their new NCAA program
  • Don Reichelt (Spartathlon Ultra)
  • Joanna Zeiger - The Champion Mindset

  • Rocky Harris, CEO of USAT
  • Erik Kenny - EK Coaching
  • Ken Axford on bike handling skills
  • Billy the Kid Edwards
