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.

Our guest this week is Dr. Inigo San Milan of CU Sports Medicine and Performance on the topic of metabolic testing.  Last week you'll recall that I mentioned one of the reasons for "why" we do this podcast, which was our ability to have conversations with interesting and quality people like Josh Shadle and Dr. Jason Karp.

Another reason that we do this is that triathlon and endurance sports have inherent complexities and things you need to learn over time.  We are driven to learn and the content that we provide is really a bi-product of that passion for us to learn.  Even after doing this for more than a decade, I continue to refine and expand my knowledge.  Things that I thought I understood, I gain a deeper appreciation for or improved understanding.  You are going to get an invaluable science lesson today folks.  We are going to talk about CU's proprietary ultrasound muscle testing for metabolic damage and glycogen storage.  If haven't been tested, then you are flat out guessing.  I was astonished at what I learned.  Plus, if you think going slow is for sissy's, think again.  After you hear this, you are going to want to know our zone 2 numbers and respect them. 

Thanks to last week's guest, Josh Shadle of Fuelary.  He'shelped us understand a more contemporary approach to wellness and performance.  The more proactive approach tests in narrower ranges, more markers and more frequently to help identify wellness and performance opportunities.  If you missed it, go back and listen to episode #121

Dr. San Millán is an Assistant Professor at the University of Colorado School of Medicine and the Director of the Sports Performance Program at the CU Sports Medicine and Performance Center in Boulder, Colorado. He is an internationally renowned applied physiologist having worked for the past 20 years for many professional teams and elite athletes worldwide across multiple sports like running, football, soccer, basketball, rowing, triathlon, swimming, Olympics and cycling including eight Pro Cycling Teams. He has also been consultant in exercise physiology and sports medicine to international organizations like the US Olympic Committee and the International Cycling Union. He has been a pioneer in developing new methodologies for monitoring athletes at the metabolic and physiological level including a novel method to measure mitochondrial function in vivo as well as the the invention, along his colleague Dr. John Hill, of the first method to measure skeletal muscle glycogen in a non-invasive manner using high frequency ultrasound. His areas of research, clinical work and interest include exercise metabolism, nutrition, sports performance, overtraining, diabetes, cancer and critical care.

 

  • Brits in Boulder, Tim Don, James Hadley and Rachel Joyce.  Franko Vatterott helped us get the trio of British pro triathletes together and Bill arranged for us to meet at Ivan O'Gorman's bike fit studio.  We discussed why they chose to move and stay in Boulder.  We talk about what it's like running your professional triathlete career as a business, keeping your edge, the future of British triathletes, and much, much more.
