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.

Episode #210 (12/22) Xmas Eve Show

Welcome to Christmas Eve Episode #210 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 interviews and discussion.

Thanks to last week's guest pro triathlete, Olympian, PhD and author Joanna Zeiger. We spoke live at Launch about her survey research results on "Age related differences in cannabis use in a survey of adult athletes." It's an eye opener of an interview. After every interview, there are always those questions that come to me and I kick myself that I forgot to ask. In this last week's interview, there were at least 2 or 3.   We'll share some additional data that was in the athlete cannabis survey research that Joanna and her colleagues published, but that we did not get to in the interview.

If you missed that interview go back and check out episode #209. The full transcript of the interview is also in the blog post on MileHighEndurancePodcast.com/blog

Video of the Week:

Joanna Interview (1st 30 minutes)

The Amazing Human Body - This is on Amazon Video and it's a series about the science of the human body. In the first episode that I watched title "Grow" they cover everything about the body and how the different parts of our body (hair, brain, cells, toes, lungs, heart, muscle, skin, organs, the gut). There was a whole section in about the body's ability to regenerate. In the "regenerate" they feature Lew Hollander who is now an 88 year old triathlete. At the 84, hi was a Kona 2014 finisher. They were using Lew as an example for how the lungs and the health of the lungs can be affected. I caught a glimpse of episode two "Survive" and a scene where they illustrate what happens to the human body when dunked in frozen water. Check out The Amazing Human Body on Amazon Video.
