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 #186 of the Mile High Endurance podcast. You are listening to your weekly connection to coaches, experts and pro athletes to help you reach your endurance goals. We are your hosts coach Rich Soares and 303 Chief Bill Plock. Thanks for joining us for another week of endurance.

Thanks to last week's guest Nige Tassell on the book Three Weeks Eight Seconds.  It's a great book to read while watching the Tour de France. The story of the 1989 Tour as told in the book is told with such insight and detail that it really helps the reader get the game within the game, so-to-speak. Grab a copy of the book if you love cycling and the Tour, or if you just want to read a great story told by a great writer with a passion for a topic.

Prepare to be inspired! Prepare to be moved in today's show. If you've been following the show, you certainly got a chance to hear a little from the Newton Running athlete panel over Ironman Boulder weekend. 

Brent and Kyle Pease, the first push-assist brother duo to complete the grueling IRONMAN World Championship and founders of The Kyle Pease Foundation, join us to tell their story through the book, Beyond the Finish, an inspiring memoir about brotherhood and relentless determination. As you will hear shortly, Kyle is the brains and Brent the brawn in the brotherly bonded duo that has inspired people around the globe and helped all of us develop a better perspective on what cerebral palsy is, its variations, and that the people afflicted are people with personalities, ambitions, have dreams, want to be inspired and to inspire others, and yes, are sometimes athletes….even Ironmen.

Thanks to last week's discussion guest Nige Tassel who tells the story of the most famous bike race I the world and this epic battle in the book Three Weeks Eight Seconds.

Interview Introduction:

I first became aware of the Pease Brothers at Ironman Boulder in 2017 and again in Kona in 2018.  It wasn't until the Newton athlete panel at this year's Ironman Boulder that I really got a chance to hear some of their story.  Jerry Lee purchased a copy of the Pease Brother's book, "Beyond the Finish" for all of the fans at the event.  After hearing their story, I was eager to read about it.  We're excited to interview them about the book, about their racing, about their bond, and about the inspiration that spills out all around them.  Let's get into the interview.

Don't Fry Bacon Naked:

Last week we introduced this segment with a discussion about really worthwhile test to get done, which is glycogen muscle ultrasound.  I've had it done and had athletes get it done.  It has helped reveal low glycogen levels, which can show symptoms if are severe enough.  It can also be high enough to not show many symptoms, but low enough that it could be revealed to you in a long race of two hours or more. The point being that if your glycogen stores are low, you could bonk much earlier than you might expect.

This week's lesson is about open water swimming and safety. This past weekend I was at one of our local spots for open water swimming.  We had a little scare with a swimmer last weekend.  A family was OWS for the first time and one person had a bit of a panic attach and another was overdue at the shore and there was a concern for his safety and an informal search that ensued.  Fortunately the overdue family member turned up and all was well. 

OWS is an experience that can cause anxiety, particularly for less experienced swimmers.  There are a number of factors that cause feelings of panic. Some are genuine fear of drowning, but its typically caused by a number of factors that are physiological as well.
