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.

Our guest this week is Dina Griffin. Dina is an exceptional ultra runner and triathlete herself. We have spoken to her in the past, but she is back with some new insights on the nutrition and training needs of female athletes. If you are a female athlete who is self-coached, you will come away with some I sights into your performance (training or racing) and hormone levels. If you've questioned why some weeks or a span of days is particularly hard for I tense training, you may start to find some answers today.

My hope is that you find your best days/weeks for hard intense training efforts and which are best for the Easy Long stuff. Coaches of female athletes, (particularly my fellow male coaches) this will be good information for us to be thinking about when doing athlete intakes and will help you with designing training programs for female athletes.

Thanks to last week's guest, winner of Ultraman Florida 2020, Dede Griesbauer. If you missed that episode, go back and check out episode #220.

Announcements:

  • This is a particularly special episode as we are super excited to announce our new sponsor this week. Some of you know who it is (or I should say guessed correctly). Some of you did not, which is okay. I thought some of the hints were a dead giveaway. We got some guesses I expected, guesses I did not expect and nobody guessed one that I thought for sure would get a couple of entries.       All of that breakdown, who guessed what and who is going to win $150 of the best sports fuel ever!

Interview with Dina Griffin (Female Athletes):

As a Sports Dietitian and athlete herself, Dina understands the many challenges that athletes encounter. She's great at helping people with goals related to weight loss, improving nutrition for training and race day, or managing a health condition.

Dina likes to ‘walk the talk’ and as such, is a competitive half marathon, marathon, and ultra runner, age group triathlete, and cyclist where she has earned top placement and age group wins in several events. For other leisure activities, she enjoys hiking, snowshoeing and open water swimming. Some notable athletic accomplishments and achievements include the Leadville 100 trail run, the Comrades ultra race in South Africa (earning a bronze medal), Ironman Coeur D’Alene (12:14 for her 1st IM in 2013), Boston Marathon (sub 3:25 finish), NYC Marathon (3:26 finish), the San Francisco North Face Endurance Run 50k, and the Mount Evans Hill Climb. She is also proud to have served as a guide for Diane Berberian at the ITU Paratriathlon World Championships in London in 2013.

Post Interview Discussion:

We have some details about the offer that Dina mentioned at the end of the interview. Our listeners can save $30 off the Endurance Nutrition Primer online program. Dina is adding a module to the program specific to female athletes very soon.

New Sponsor Reveal:

We got some guesses I expected, guesses I did not expect and nobody guessed one that I thought for sure would get a couple of entries. All of that breakdown, who guessed what and who is going to win $150 of the best sports fuel ever! We have the blender raffle coming up to announce the winner, new sponsor and the deals for MHEP listeners.

The incorrect guesses included Skratch, BonkBreaker, SKRATCH and INFINIT. There were no guesses for Precision Hydration, which I thought might draw a couple of guesses. The folks that did guess correctly that our new sponsor is…DRUM ROLL….GENERATION UCAN! There were some correct guesses that have gone into the hat/blender. Here's the draw. And the winner is…Kristen Louderback!

UCAN gives you steady energy so you can finish stronger. Today I used the UCAN Performance Energy drink and the zero calorie, zero sugar, electrolyte replenishment drink during my 90 minute ride and then had a chocolate recovery shake mixed with milk after my brick run. I feel great and ready to keep going. It has helped me and thousands of athletes eliminate GI distress and prevent the bonk. Check out how Tim O'Donnell uses UCAN here

UCAN Sets Course for How Olympic Marathon Hopefuls Train for the 2020 Trials

Team UCAN’s Olympic Trials qualifiers represent 15 states and these athletes come from a diverse range of running backgrounds – from professional runners, to school teachers, nurses, engineers and a wide range of other full-time careers. With the field of marathoners getting more competitive each year, athletes are looking for new and innovative ways to up their game and performance.

One of those ways is through nutrition and the use of UCAN’s SuperStarch, which is scientifically proven to provide a slow drip of glucose into the body to manage blood sugar levels, the key to peak performance and reducing fatigue. Compared to sugar-based sports nutrition drinks, bars and gels that overwhelm the body with surges in sugar, leading to sudden energy crashes, SuperStarch maintains stable blood glucose levels that allows athletes to unlock their full potential with sustained energy.

“The Olympic Marathon Trials continue to grow in number every year, and we are excited to be the sports nutrition product of choice for more than 50 individuals in this year’s Trials,” says Shoba Murali, CEO of UCAN. “In a changing world where people from the rookie runner to pro athlete look for products to help them achieve personal and professional fitness goals, UCAN aligns with these goals, offering sports nutrition products that deliver performance without compromising long-term health.”
