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.

Dr. Carwyn Sharp, Chief Science Officer at the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) is joining us to talk about energy zones and the science behind it.  Dr. Sharp presented at this topic at the USAT Level 1 Coaches Clinic and I wanted to share his expertise and knowledge with the MHE team.  You are going to be a lot smarter about energy zones, why consistency is king, and what it takes to maximize your fitness and strength potential. 

We're going to get into high altitude rides and how to pace yourself, the plans for the 5430 Boulder Peak put on by Without Limits Productions, Kona Prep and more.  Let's get into the weekly updates with our friends from 303Triathlon. 

Thanks to last week's guests, USAT COO Tim Yount, Youth Program Manager Meg Weagley, and High School/Collegiate-Club, & Women's NCAA Coordinator Jessica Welk to talk about the present and future of our sport.

Let's get into the interview with Dr. Carwyn Sharp and hear what he has to say about your energy zones.  Now most athletes that are listening to this show is familiar to well-versed on training zones.  Are you really well versed in your training zones?  Have you ever been curious about what is happening at a biological level inside your body and how it relates to the training zones.  Are your training zones right?  If you have a coach - excellent.  If they are a USAT certified coach they have been through this training and they know what they are talking about. 

If however, you are in the range of using training zones that are vaguely defined or not defined at all, you really want to stop what you are doing and just settle in for a good bit of learning.  Grab something to take notes if you like.

And we're back.  We are recording today's show just before the interview, so we don't have a retrospective per se, but we know you are way smarter about the topic than you were an hour ago.  Whether you are hard core or a casual athlete, this is important information.  You now have the knowledge to understand the importance of these different energy systems and how the body's performance is sourced. 

 

 Let's talk briefly about upcoming interviews.
