Master Competitor is a CoachTube featured instructor!

I have a new adventure underway and I wanted to tell my readers about it: Master Competitor is a now a featured instructor at CoachTube.

The site developers contacted me a few months ago prior to launch date. We discussed format and segments, also many of the visuals that make the site, and my personal channel, appealing to the consumer audience.

According to the site,  "CoachTube gives every athlete in the world access to the instructions, knowledge, and motivation they need to grow and progress as athletes. We do this by providing access to online training from the world’s best coaches. These lessons are available on-demand, so that students can learn where & when it’s convenient for them. CoachTube is like an app store for coaching and instructional courses featuring videos and detailed training from the to 5% of coaches across the web. We provide a wide variety of experts so no matter what the subject is, we believe students and athletes should be able to learn about any topic, from coaches anywhere in the world."

Working with Coach Tube is a lot of fun and it's a great repository for teaching and learning opportunities. Whether it's throwing a fastball or running your first marathon. CoachTube has the resources to help you make it happen.

I want to give a quick shout out to Phillip Loyd, who was patient and helpful in putting together my first lesson plan. So, here it is, check out my "No fail nutrition plan" which tracks closely with my book "Mind Over Diet."

I'm already working on an outline for my "No fail fitness plan" and then "Most Efficient Running Technique, Part 2."

Well, I'd like to write more, but I better get to the gym and burn more calories. When you have a CoachTube channel, it's important to get in coaching form and shape!

Hope you enjoy the CoachTube experience.


  1. Sounds cool. Is this available to anyone or only students?

    1. Jennifer all in. I have some free lessons or my nutrition planning package is $5.99.

Scott Jurek ate vegan, won ultras...then got divorced

(Disclaimer:  I am a Brooks-supported athlete; as part of that relationship, I was provided a complimentary copy of "Eat & Run")

I was recently on a few flights making my way home to Wisconsin and en route was able to plow through Scott Jurek's new book "Eat & Run: My Unlikely Journey to Ultramarathon Greatness."

It's a fast, enjoyable read. I've been around the ultra scene for a long time and have known some of the greats, i.e. ultra champ Eric Clifton. So it's always interesting to see how the world looks from another icon's point of view.

My thoughts in no particular order:

1) I've been vegetarian/borderline vegan for 12 years and have always been concerned with protein intake.  Jurek advocates for the protein he naturally induces through his plant-based diet.  Maybe that is enough. Maybe it's not necessary to bang down 100+ grams of protein supplement every day. Good info and good advice.

2) I'm buying on big time to Scot…

Nothing to see here, folks

It's been a long time since I've been active on my blog. To be honest, I got tired of putting in the work, creating content, with so little feedback or response. Time to divert to other things...such as my new fiction book, coming out soon. Part horror story, part steamy romance. You'll definitely want a copy.

There's another reason I haven't been posting. My endurance spirit is broken.

Some medical issues, some sadness is loss of speed. I don't have much range left in my pulse rate and I have put on a blob of weight.

I "ran" my 10 mile loop this 2:18. Is that ugly, or what? An overall fatigue follows the run. I remember a few years ago, I'd bang it out in straight 9's for a 1:30 - and at that time had a long section of medium effort trail included, too.

It's the new normal. It's age appropriate. I'll be 59 in two weeks. Let's get real.

Rode my mountain bike Sunday after church. Don't know what I hit but I went…


You have to look closely (click and enlarge photo if needed), but when you do, check out the 5th metacarpal (bone furthest from thumb).

The diagonal break is symbolic of what happens when your mountain bike handlebars snap around 360 degrees, and those bars catch your hand against the bike frame during the rotation.

Well there you have it. I got up after my ride over the bars and knew something was wrong, but didn't want to admit it. Rode about three miles back to the car, then went a week with some ice and heat. Thought it was good, until I smacked the same bone on the bars during a road ride the following weekend.

Time to stop the charades and get to urgent care.

For the past three weeks, I have been in a formed splint that kept the pinkie and ring fingers immobilized in a hooked formation. Don't want those tendons to move across the bone. As the doc stated, it's a "forgiving" break, but nonetheless you don't want to give the bone any excuse to shift; that…
