    139 Poignant, Powerful, and Positive Life Lessons from a 50 Mile Ultra

    21/10/2020 Duração: 53min

    As we finish 2020 and gear up emotionally for bigger and better times in 2021, we’ve got a chance to RESET, to lay the groundwork of mindset, habits, and action that will equip us to thrive next year - no matter what is thrown our way. Matt put this mantra to action at a recent 50 Mile Ultra race and shares the poignant, painful, and powerful life lessons he learned running for over 12 hours in the mountains of central Oregon. This very simple event acted as a lightening rod and helped with so many other positive habits around flexibility, patience, accountability, and community. He leaned into the power of sport and it provided much-needed purpose to enable excellence across all aspects of life. This is the heart of the Performance Reset 2020 - experts and companies sharing their thoughts on the role of sport because, make no mistake, sport is powerful. You might be feeling rudderless. You might be tired of this carnival and the uncertainty. But, we have no doubt you have a performance-driven mindset. You ma

    Yes, it's the week that triathletes, coaches, and spectators usually descend up Kailua-Kona for the annual IRONMAN World Championships.  This week, Matt looks back on six memorable stories from his 20+ years of heading over to Kona for the big race. Some stories involve lessons pros like Chris Lieto, Rachel Joyce, and Sarah Piampiano. Other takeaways center around age-group athletes that Matt has coached at the World Championships.  Each story is poignant and full of life lessons for all of us - stay calm, stick with the process, nail the basics, get your attitude right, and, most importantly: NEVER Stand Down Wind.  We know you'll enjoy this look back at some of the moments that make this race so special, sufferable, unique, rewarding, and totally unforgettable.

    136 Parenting Through COVID-19 with a Coach's Lens - Fostering Development and Acceleration with Creativity and Communication

    30/09/2020 Duração: 36min

    Our children have faced change across various arenas of life and, for most, it has been incredibly isolating. Many parents are struggling with how to support kids through the turbulence that we find ourselves in these days, especially in terms of talking about Covid-19, supporting their education, and addressing the common fears of social, sporting, and emotional development due to the detours that we are navigating. Today, Matt provides his lens on how to support children emotionally, through his unique coaching lens: fostering development in our kids through sport, and creating fun and inventive ways to drive them forward. Kids are observant, smart, and adaptable. We cannot hide or gloss the situation and they are more equipped than we realize to handle a tailored version of the realities we face.

    135 - Ivan O'Gorman - The Values, Benefits, and Results of a Proper Bike Fit

    23/09/2020 Duração: 01h14min

    We've got one for the geeks this week as I welcome Ivan O'Gorman of IOG Bike Fit and Consulting to the podcast for a deep dive on bike fitting and performance. Ivan regularly works with recreational cyclists and triathletes of all levels, as well as World Tour professionals and Olympians. As a seven-time IRONMAN World Championship finisher and two-time LT 100 MTB finisher, Ivan has significant first-hand knowledge of the many factors athletes must consider to maximize results. Plus, did we mention that he's engaging, animated, and incredibly smart? Bike fitting, one would argue, is equal parts art and science, but as you'll hear, it's much more than just changing a saddle position and sending you on your way without regard to comfort and performance. If you've recently purchased a new bike (and we know many of you have), or if you want to get dialed in for 2021, now is a great time to get your equipment in order. It doesn't matter if you're a competitve triathlete eeking out every last watt, or a recreational

    131 Characteristics of an Athletic Mindset (Or, How to Be Like Pro, Sarah Piampiano)

    26/08/2020 Duração: 45min

    If 2020 was a chapter in an athlete story, it would be classified as a massive challenge and a setback that includes disappointment and most certainly failure. But, the great athlete would navigate, learn, and overcome. A great athlete has the tools and wisdom to realize the path of performance is never linear. Today is Part Two on our series of performance culture and the athletic mindset. Last week, we dug into the cultural model of performance. It's the model that we utilize at Purple Patch and it is a way of doing something that unites individuals and creates a collective resilience. And at the end of the day, the individuals that thrive within that culture lean into a suite of traits and characteristics that make up what we call the athletic mindset. Now, we've learned over the last few months of turbulence, that these traits are the very traits that foster the resilience, adaptability and the growth needed, not to just navigate, but to thrive through these times. What are these characteristics and trait

    127 Heather Grahame - An Athlete's Adventurous Multisport Journey to Joy

    29/07/2020 Duração: 01h58s

    Matt welcomes Purple Patch athlete, Heather Grahame, to discuss her adventurous multisport journey to joy. Based in Helena MT, Grahame spent 100k miles on a plane last year as lead counsel of a publicly-traded public utility. Now, in 2020, she finds herself grounded (literally and physically) because of our new normal. Instead of going random, Heather doubled-down on her training regime and growth mindset. Her varied life's journey included financial and emotional instability as a child and teenager, but in conflict, came resolve and a work ethic that led to a stint at Stanford University, and athletic achievements in field hockey, soccer, cycling time trial championships in Alaska, dog sled racing, and, of course, triathlon -- all while traveling extensively for her work and raising two daughters with her husband. If you are looking to set your path for the rest of 2020, you could do worse than draw from the lessons and perspective of Heather. She has found joy, direction, purpose and FUN through her trainin

    126 Jeff Troesch, Performance and Mental Coach - Part 2 - Dealing with THE NOW

    22/07/2020 Duração: 36min

    Performance and Mental Coach, Jeff Troesch, returns this week to talk about navigating THE NOW - this era of COVID-19 and the lack of races and our usual structured season. A mental coach is often forgotten until you face adversity. They’re often viewed as “fixers,” but as this episode shows, continually working on your mental skills is all about performance enhancement and not necessarily fixing something that is broken. What is the best way for you to approach and tackle the challenges that we are faced with now and for the foreseeable future? What are some of the mental exercises that the pros and elites employ?  How can you avoid the “f*ck its" in a time that may be filled with disappointment and apathy? What is the right balance between empathy and pulling yourself up from the bootstraps? We understand the inclination without races is to fall into random training, but know this: when you fall into a random training structure, your entire life becomes random and rudderless.

    121 Recovery Revisited - Your Catalyst for Performance

    17/06/2020 Duração: 49min

    Make no mistake, the fabric of society is being stretched and global stress is elevated for almost everyone. The acute awareness of the need for resilience, adaptability, and a platform of health is rising, but a key component of development in these areas lies recovery - often under-valued, misunderstood, and ignored. As you emerge stronger, there will be lots of hard work ahead, but success will only come if you make room for smart and strategic ongoing rejuvenation and recovery. In this episode, the "recovery coach" takes you on a journey: What is stress? Why are so many feeling a global sense of fatigue right now? Are training stress and life stress mutually exclusive? What exactly is recovery and what simple action steps can you take right now to improve your platform of health and energy? EFFECTIVE recovery first emerges from your state of mind. In fact, it takes courage to recover. In this episode, Matt shows you how.   Episode Resources:    Precision Hydration - Uplevel Your Downtime Visit the web p

    What is the difference between inclusion and real belonging in a community? Can you have one without the other? Yes, indeed, you can. Unfortunately, there are too many groups where you can be included without feeling like you truly belong. What is the missing ingredient? Trust.
