For SF Athletes - No track at Kezar Stadium tonight! Instead, come hear Matt talk and have a beer instead. It's ‪purplepatch‬ sanctioned, so no need for guilt :)  Details at the public Facebook event link here - https://www.facebook.com/events/1504229249808700/

Added bonus: Fun glimpse at early morning swim mayhem! ‪Matt getting +Vineman Tri 70.3 pros and AGs ready to rock it on Sunday!

A lot of us tested last week - ultimate battle (other than a race!) with the voices in our head. As always - for SF members - track is on Thursday at Kezar Stadium at 6pm. See you there!

Training wisdom of the day handpicked by Matt.  Placebo magic and the importance of a long warmup!  #TrainingInspiration
If a training aid makes you feel better, does it really matter if the effect turns out to be in your head?

Really cool +NPR: TED Radio Hour Podcast  piece on #Champions. Nice sections on what keeps elite athletes motivated, echoing much of what purplepatch pros have already shared.   
Friendly reminder for SF Community - we're at Kezar track tonight at 6pm for another great set.  Hope to see you there!
From Little League to the Olympics, athletic mastery plays a major role in our sense of achievement. This hour, TED speakers explore the minds and bodies of champions who achieve extraordinary feats.

Reposting a blog shared by Matt in this week's coaches bulletin, in case you missed it. Great lesson on the work and passion that supports success. As always - for SF folks, track at Kezar Stadium. 6pm. Crazy 8s.

Introduction
It's not a color, it's a feeling. 

The purplepatch methodology is grounded in a belief that optimal endurance performance, for every level of athlete, arrives from a balanced approach to training. The set of beliefs  that evolved from the education, athletic and coaching experience of Matt Dixon are the foundation of purplepatch.
