    COACH JENNY - EPISODE 43 - GILAD JACOBS - Recover Like the Pro’s with NormaTec CEO Gilad Jacobs

    Gilad Jacobs is the CEO of Boston-based NormaTec Industries, a global leader in medical and sports technology. The son of NormaTec’s founder, Dr. Jacobs, Gilad saw incredible potential in harnessing the science behind his mother’s work, and customizing it to benefit athletes, leading him to grow it from a small medical device company into the revolutionary sports and medicine company that it is today.

    I’ve used the Normatec Recovery System for years and I think it is the coolest recovery product around. In this episode, we talk about its origin in the medical world, how it made its way to the sports industry with pro endurance athletes, and how it works to help athletes recover and perform better.

    GUEST BIOGRAPHY: DEENA KASTOR

    I have been running since I was 11 years old and have learned over the years that there is no greater influence on success than the power of optimism. When we are positive, we master our physical potential. The power of our own thinking can open doors and elevate our performances. With optimism I have been able to pursue every goal, win medals, earn American and world records, but more importantly, I’ve been able to be resilient in the face of injury and falling short. Optimists are dreamers, believers and solution seekers. I believe that these lessons are universal and not running exclusive.

    COACH JENNY - EPISODE 38 - SCOTT JUREK: North - Finding My Way While Running the Appalachian Trail with Scott Jurek

    Scott Jurek is considered one of the greatest long distance runners of all time. He has claimed victories in nearly all of ultrarunning’s elite trail and road events including the historic 153-mile Spartathlon, the Hardrock 100, the Badwater 135-Mile Ultramarathon, and the Western States 100-Mile Endurance Run, which he won a record seven times.

    He is also the New York Times bestselling author of Eat and Run, has been prominently featured in countless publications, and is a star of the international bestseller, Born to Run.

    In 2015, Scott decided to mark the end of a 20-year career as a competitive runner by undertaking what would be his mind and body’s greatest test: establishing a new fastest known time (FKT) for running the entire length of the 2,189-mile Appalachian Trail. In order to set the record, he would run each and every day, rain or shine, for 46 days straight—NO days off—

    While Scott ran, his wife Jenny who is also an accomplished ultramarathoner, led the support crew, an ever changing motley group of old friends and new acquaintances. In their book NORTH, Scott and Jenny chronicle their amazing journey.

    This is a conversation with Scott about his new book, this incredible adventure, retirement, and parenthood. Enjoy.

    GUEST BIOGRAPHY: SCOTT JUREK - BORN TO RUN:

    Named one of the greatest runners of all time, Scott Jurek has become a living legend. He has claimed victories in nearly all of ultrarunning’s elite trail and road events including the historic 153-mile Spartathlon, the Hardrock 100, the Badwater 135-Mile Ultramarathon, and—his signature race—the Western States 100-Mile Endurance Run, which he won a record seven straight times. Scott has also taken the running world by storm with his 2015 Appalachian Trail speed record, averaging nearly 50 miles a day over 46 days—and the United States all-surface record in the 24-Hour Run with 165.7 miles: 6.5 marathons in one day.

    Off the trail, Scott is a New York Times-bestselling author for his memoir, Eat & Run, has been prominently featured in countless publications, and is a star of the international bestseller, Born To Run.

    More than just a champion, Scott is a true student and ambassador of the sport, known to stay at finish lines cheering until the last runner crosses. When not racing, he donates his time to many non profit organizations and is an avid volunteer in the areas of environmental conservation, fitness and health.

    A passionate advocate for vegetarianism, he follows a 100% plant-based diet, which he credits for his endurance, recovery and consistent twenty year racing career. He believes that everyone can run an ultra and everyone can access their body’s innate capacity to heal. Through writing, public speaking, and consulting, Scott takes joy in encouraging people of all fitness levels to take the next step toward vibrant health.

    Scott currently resides in Boulder, CO with his wife, Jenny, and newborn daughter, Raven.

    Lessons from The Breaking2 Project with Dr. Skiba

    The Coach Jenny Show starstarstarstarstar
    add

    On May 6, 2017, three runners attempted to break the two-hour marathon barrier. Kenya’s Eliud Kipchoge ran the fastest marathon in history at 2 hours and 25 seconds.

    Dr. Phillip Skiba was part of Nike’s scientific team for the Breaking2 project. He is board certified in both family medicine and sports medicine, with a PhD in Exercise Physiology.

    He spent several years in the UK as Director of Sports Medicine at the University of Exeter, and developed the equations, algorithms and software systems used by the British Triathlon Federation in their successful quest for gold at the 2012 London Olympics.

    Skiba's work is now in use at several Olympic training centers and helps train the fastest runners in the world.

    If you haven’t watched the Breaking2 movie, you can do so for free on Youtube.

    Although the target sub 2-hour goal wasn’t achieved, the project shows us what is possible, and more importantly, how we can go about improving performance.

    There is so much to be learned in this episode. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

    We discuss:

    Is it possible to break the 2-hour barrier in the marathon?

    Why was this project important?

    The training variables they focused on with each runner.

    What he would do differently next time.

    Applications that can be used for every day mortals.
