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.

Post Interview Discussion

  • Mikael
    • Bon Jovi
    • Two thresholds
      • Below first vt they stay level and stable (easy, 1 and 2)
      • Between first and second threshold, lactate levels start to increase, but if you stay at a steady pace, the LT will stabilize and not increase (moderate)  at the higher end you could be doing hard work; this is also sweet spot just below the 2nd threshold
      • Above 2nd threshold; at a steady pace the lactate increases and continues to accumulate
    • 45-70 minutes at 2nd threshold
  • Yokohama - US Women Sweep podium https://303triathlon.com/podium-sweep-in-yokohama-highlights-great-weekend-for-usa-triathlon/
    • Three Americans on the podium and a third straight World Triathlon Series (WTS) victory for Katie Zaferes (Santa Cruz, Calif.) made it an incredible weekend for the USA Triathlon women in Yokohama. Summer Rappaport (Thornton, Colo.) earned silver for the second WTS medal of her career, while Taylor Spivey (Redondo Beach, Calif.) continued her impressive 2019 season with a bronze medal to help the red, white and blue round out the podium. It was the fourth U.S. podium sweep in ITU World Triathlon Series history and the first since 2016.
