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.

Welcome to Episode #78 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're glad you are joining us for another week of endurance. 

Thanks to last week's guest Ken Axford of Peak Multisport.  Ken is a Level 2 USAT coach who taught us about the topic of transitions.  Posted videos on MHE and the MHE YouTube channel.

It is a recovery week here after Ironman Boulder last weekend.  Congratulations to all of the finishers!  Kudos to Tim Brosious, Dave Christen and Ironman Foundation for executing a well-planned.  We'll have a discussion on the race and interviews later in the show today.

Whether you are a commuter or regular roadie, we want you to be safe on the road.  There was an unfortunate fatal cyclist / vehicle accident.  Local coach and beloved member of the triathlon community Steve Pye passed.  Our prayers and condolences are with Steve's family.  In addition to the Ironman Boulder interviews, we have an interview with Todd Plymael-Mallory to talk about tips to avoid getting hit.  We talk about the recent trends and our responsibilities as cyclists on the road.

Before we get into the interviews. Let's catch up with Bill Plock and Khem Suthiwan of 303 Triathlon.

303 Triathlon and 303 Cycling are your resource for news and information on triathlon and cycling in Colorado.  Be sure to also check out 303Radio.  303Radio is your news podcast for triathlon and cycling.  Be sure to go to 303Triathlon to see all of last weekend's great coverage of Ironman Boulder.

Health IQ advocates for a health conscious lifestyle.  The folks at Health IQ used science & data to secure special rates on life insurance for health conscious people including triathletes, cyclists, runners, swimmers, strength trainers, vegans, and more. Research has shown that avid cyclists have 27% lower heart disease risk, and 40% lower risk of early death

Triathletes sometimes get penalized for family history, BMI, and other attributes but don’t get rewarded for their health conscious lifestyle.  Health IQ rewards you for your health conscious lifestyle with special rates on life insurance

Our interview today is with Todd Playmal-Mallary.  Todd is a Mind, Body and Soul Mechanic.  He uses Acupuncture and Chinese medicine to treat patients/clients with Orthopedic Conditions, common disorders, physical and mental wellness.  His client base includes many professional endurance athletes.

And we're back.  Of course we are pre-recording the episode, so we do not have any post interview commentary.  I'll bet it was an amazing interview.  I can say that the training we received from her a few weeks ago in Colorado Springs was fantastic.
