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 interview this week is with  3x Ironman World Champ Craig "Crowie" Alexander.  We are talking about the SANSEGO Clinic in Boulder June 15-17.  If you are a triathlete who lives in the greater Denver area, you couldn't ask for a better coaching clinic opportunity.  You don't have to take off a bunch of time from work.  You don't have to travel.  When you hear what's included, you are going to realize what a value it is.  Plus, we are going to do a drawing this week for one person who will get a free registration to the clinic.  Hint - there's a clue in the interview!

Thanks to last week's guests, coach and nutrition expert Bob Seebohar.  Not only did Bob share some great information to build on our knowledge of how to fuel yourself for endurance athletic success, we formally kicked off the "get metabolically efficient" project this week.  We have more on that in a little bit!

As mentioned in the intro, Crowie is a 3x Ironman World Champion.  He also has 2 70.3 world championship titles. 

As a father, husband, businessman and athlete, Crowie has felt the same pressures you do in balancing family, a career and your passion for the sport of triathlon. The Sansego Advance program provides an opportunity to train with Crowie and get expert guidance from the Sansego team of coaches in a three-day program.

Instead of taking a week off work and away from family to go to a training camp, you can join us during the day, sleep in your own bed and spend time with your family, all without having to take time off work. For this program, you’ll have the chance to train with Crowie in his second home of Boulder, Colorado, the mecca of

triathlon. You’ll experience some classic training routes of the top Ironman pros and see a day in the life of a pro living in Boulder.

  • The Halo Sport from Halo Neuroscience will help you learn the technique and form to get faster.  You wear the Halo Headset for 20 minutes and use the paired app on your phone to do what they call "neural priming".  The headset looks like Beats headphones, the top band has plates that you moisten.  When you start the "neural priming" from the app, the plates conduct electrical wave stimulation of the motor cortex part of the brain which puts it into a state of hyper plasticity, which simply means that the brain can make neural connections faster and help you learn quicker.

 

Motor skills rely on the brain to send signals to the correct muscles and parts of muscles in the right order. Through plasticity, your brain is able to ensure that your neurons are working together for a precise result

Endurance relies on the motor cortex to repeat an action for an extended period of time. Each time you take a step, swim a stroke, or pedal a bike, your brain and your muscles consume energy. Via plasticity, your training leads to more efficient movements, reducing the energy cost of each action and allowing you to endure for a longer period of time.

Strength relies on the motor cortex to ensure that your muscle fibers are contracting together and not competing with each other. Powerful output requires the coordination of the many thousands of neurons that activate a group of primary and synergist muscles. With plasticity, the brain learns to contract more useful muscle fibers and relax opposing fibers, allowing you to lift more.
