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. ‚ÄčThe 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 topic this week is "how to get to Kona"?  We talk to Level 3 coach Mike Ricci on how to transform yourself from an average age-grouper to a Kona qualifier.  Everything from picking the right coach to picking the right race is right here today.

Thanks to last week's guests, Dr. Inigo San Milan of CU Sports Medicine and Performance Center.  We received some good feedback on the interview.  Coaches including Mike Ricci and 3 time Olympian Jim Galanes liking that content. 

I have to say, this topic of nutrition and metabolic rates is extremely personal and inter-related.  I'm pleased about the positive feedback and a little relieved there wasn't some negative feedback. As I mentioned, I know there are people who experience success with different approaches.  I had Dr. Bob Seebohar on my mind while preparing the content last week.  Bob has talked with us in the past about metabolic efficiency.  I'd like to get him back on to discuss this because I know there's something to it, but I want to do it in a way that is not confusing to the audience. 

 Kona is the serious goal of many triathletes.  For many, it just seems like a dream or unattainable goal.  Whether you have already earned your ticket to the Ironman World Championship or it just preoccupies your triathlete dreams, you will want to hear what coach Mike Ricci has some great advice.

Discussion Topics:

  • How to go from average age-grouper to Kona Qualifier?
  • Can you cram for an Ironman? 
  • Wildflower report
  • Karen Hornbostel Memorial TT and how to attach a bike race number so it is aero?  Glue or pin?

Upcoming Interviews:

  • USA Navy coach Billy Edwards to break down USAT Nationals
  • Coach Matt Bottrill out of the UK joins us to discuss bike aerodynamic form.  He is Tim Don (and I believe Rachel Joyces's cycling coach).  Matt is going to join us for an interview and get into just how many watts you can save yourself with good bike form.
  • Andrew Talansky on Oceanside and St George 70.3
  • Dina Griffin "The Nutrition Mechanic" Clients include ultra runners, triathletes, marathoners, adventure racers, and cyclists.
