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 #79 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 Todd Plymale Mallory to talk about how to keep yourself safe on the road and avoid getting hit. 

 

It's another very busy week of endurance. There's a ton going on this weekend.  There are literally five triathlon races this weekend in Colorado.  http://www.runningintheusa.com/Race/List.aspx?Rank=Upcoming&Special=triathlon&State=CO&Page=1

Lake to Lake, Tri the Boat, Tribella, Boulder Sunrise, South Suburban TRYathlon, and Tri On The Plains

Plus, there are lots of big rides like the MS150 and http://www.hauteroute.org/

With all of the racing going on and so many folks doing their first open water swims, we thought it would be helpful to bring you a couple of interviews on open water swimming that may be good reviews for folks trying to get comfortable in open water swimming.  We pulled out some interviews on wetsuit selection and fit with Liz Whitfield-Sharpe and open water swimming with Michael Mann of SwimLabs.

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.  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 offers low cost life insurance for the those living a health conscious lifestyle.  The folks at Health IQ used science & data to secure special rates on life insurance for triathletes, cyclists, runners, swimmers, etc.  Did you know that triathletes have a 40% lower risk of all-cause mortality and 27% lower risk of cardiovascular mortality.  Well the good folks at Health IQ do.  Get a quote now at HealthIQ.com/milehighendurance, or go the MHE Sponsor page and click the link to Health IQ and it will take you to the right place.

Let's get into the interviews with Liz Whitfield-Sharp of TriBella to talk about wetsuit fitting and Michael Mann on open water swimming.

And we're back.  As we mentioned at the beginning of the show, the TriBella triathlon is this Saturday at Cherry Creek Res.  TriBella bike shop sponsors this all women's race.  It's run by Lance Panigutti of Without Limits Productions.

 

SwimLabs is a great resource for those looking to develop open water swimming skills.  Not only do they have great facilities for learning the skills that translate into more confident and efficient open water swimming, they also run the open water swimming at Grant Ranch.  Thank you Brooke and Michael Mann for grabbing my new Xterra Vengeance wetsuit and Brooke for making sure I write my name on the suit.
