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.

Today's show is supported by Generation UCAN and iKOR Labs. UCAN to help fuel you to the finish line and iKOR to help you out-recover the competition!

I was reading this interview on Choose Mountains with this Boulder woman who was an athlete, a business owner, and Chiropractor, and ultra-runner. In that article she told the story of how a collegiate track career was sidelined by psoriatic arthritis preventing her from running. This sent her on a journey to figure out what was causing her inflammation. Which led to new eating habits and elimination of foods that caused inflammation. This eventually led to her being a healer, health and fitness coach. Anyway, I was intrigued by her story and I'm glad to be able to share it with you today, Dr Ellen KIndelsperger.

Also in today's show:

  • IRONMAN and other race announcements on COVID-19
  • IMNZ pro podium
  • Colorado Classic Route Announced
  • Specialized doing testing of a new bike chamois
  • KHMTT next week

Thanks to last week's guest, David Warden to talk to us about pacing and celebrating our 4 year anniversary. If you missed that episode, go back and check out episode #222.

THE IRONMAN GROUP’S RESPONSE TO COVID-19

 

To our global community,

 

We know that both our athletes and our communities want to be racing; we do too.

While The IRONMAN Group’s mission is to provide exceptional, life-changing race experiences for athletes of all levels, from their first step to the finish line, we can only accomplish this by providing the safest possible environment, and safeguarding the citizens of our host communities.

COVID-19 has substantially altered the global sports landscape and will have material impact on the mass participation industry in the immediate term. We want to reassure you that the health and well-being of our community is our primary concern. To this end, we are doing our part to communicate effectively and follow public health agencies and governmental authorities’ recommendations.

We expect that there are going to be substantial and widespread event postponements in the coming weeks and months. The decision to proceed, restrict, modify or postpone an event will be based on availability of community resources and ongoing event-specific risk assessment in coordination with the relevant healthcare and government authorities and the IRONMAN Global Medical Advisory Board, an independent medical advisory board focused on health and safety.

For events that will continue, The IRONMAN Group, along with the IRONMAN Global Medical Advisory Board, has outlined a series of pragmatic and practical actions designed to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19 or any other infectious agent to athletes and to members of our host communities. These steps will help athletes achieve their goals while allowing communities to secure the benefits of hosting mass participation sporting events. They will be implemented worldwide at all IRONMAN Group events beginning March 19 and will continue indefinitely.

Providing Flexibility to Athletes

Certain races will be postponed or cancelled due to the outbreak and we will communicate these as soon as practical. Our goal will be to move the race to a date later in the year. We work in close partnership with the relevant public health authorities in the territories where the races take place and err on the side of safety for our athletes and the host community. If an event cannot occur on the scheduled date, we will take the following actions:

Postponement: Registered athletes for events that are postponed due to COVID-19 by the local health authorities are automatically transferred to the rescheduled date. For those that the new date does not work, we will allow deferrals into the same event the next year.

Cancellation: Registered athletes for events that are cancelled due to COVID-19 by the local health authorities are automatically deferred to the same race in 2021.

Other options: We are vetting other options to allow displaced athletes to race in 2020 and will communicate those in due course.

Athletes in Quarantined/Restricted Territories: For athletes in certain designated quarantine or restricted territories who have registered for races that take place before June 1, 2020 and have NOT been postponed or cancelled, we will aid in finding alternative races later in the season.

For those who are sick, feel unwell, or have been potentially exposed to an infectious agent in advance of a race that will take place, do not come to the race; instead seek medical care. Once you have done so, contact the relevant Athlete Services representative for your race and we will attempt to find you another solution.

Safe Event Experience

In order to provide the safest experience for our athletes, we are instituting the following at our races, effective March 19.  

  • Reinforcing Social Distancing in all elements of the event
    • The hours of on-site event registration will be expanded.
    • Athletes will be allowed to pick up their athlete race kit/race bib and immediately exit expo area.
    • Athlete density will be decreased by increasing individual race space staging, corrals, etc.
    • No-handshake behavior will be encouraged for the duration of the event.
    • Athlete briefing information will be available digitally only.
    • Non-core, high-contact services (e.g. wetsuit peeling) will be suspended. 
  • Hygiene First
    • Staff and volunteers who are interacting with participants pre-race, on race day and post-race will be provided gloves.
    • Hand-washing stations and sanitation stations around the venue for athletes, volunteers and spectators will be increased
    • No-touch waste disposal stations and receptacles will be rolled out as available.
    • Frequently touched surfaces at race venue locations such as workstations, product distribution areas, tables and electronic devices will be cleaned regularly.
    • When possible, on-course food and fluid supplies will be single use/single serving closed packaging
    • Athletes planning to return home by airplane or rail are encouraged to avoid travel post-event for 24 hours allowing their immune system time to recover post-race.
    • No onsite interviews or press conference with professional athletes.
    • No handshake/contact on the race podium.
    • Printed document distribution will be eliminated. 
  • Medical Service
    • Education and awareness training regarding signs and symptoms of COVID-19 will be provided to all medical and volunteer staff.
    • Frequent communication with health authorities and healthcare facilities will be implemented to assist in assessment, referral and initial management of suspected COVID-19 illness of staff, participants, volunteers, and spectators.

 

This is a highly dynamic situation and we will continue to adapt and adjust as appropriate. We appreciate your patience in the coming days and weeks.

We recognize that this is a challenging time but our community will endure. We are inspired by your ambition, and endeavor to be worthy of your commitment.

As further updates are available, they will be posted at www.ironman.com/updates and www.runrocknroll.com/updates in addition to our individual event sites and social media pages.

What's New in the 303:

Colorado Classic Route Announced

Specialized Needs Volunteers to Test New Chamois Design, Free Retul Fit, Keep Bibs and Raffle for a New Bike

Boulder–Specialized/Retul is looking to test a new cycling chamois design. We will be comparing a newly designed chamois to a previous model. All in-person testing will take place at the Retül HQ office in Boulder, CO.

We are looking for men and women who are avid road/gravel cyclists, riding between 5-12 hours a week, who are training towards a specific cycling goal.

The study will consist of:

– A Retül 3D Motion Capture Fit screening to ensure the rider is riding in a neutral position that will not affect the comfort of the chamois

– In-studio test, where the rider will wear and ride in each for up to 15 minutes

– Two weeks of riding in the chamois (one week per chamois), where the rider will log their rides with GPS to verify training volume.


Karen Hornbostel Memorial Time Trial starts next week out at Cherry Creek Reservoir.

Video of the Week:

Fuel the Right Way with UCAN. Last week I provided a brief explanation that it's a starch instead of a sugar. This translates to a steady release of energy instead of sugar spikes and crashes. It not only performs differently, it also mixes and drinks differently. I thought I'd share how I use the mixer bottle and how to fill water bottles without the mess.
