What are you training for?

What's happening at Purplepatch?

Last week, World Triathlon Corporation (WTC), the owner of the IRONMAN brand, launched a new coaching certification program labeled IRONMAN UNIVERSITY. The concept is to provide an online educational course for aspiring coaches, focused around IRONMAN and IRONMAN 70.3 events.
Our mission is to be able to run well off the bike.  This sport is not swimming, cycling and running.  It is SwimBikeRun.
What does it take to be your best? Recently, I watched the move Red Army about the 1980 Soviet Olympic ice hockey team which lost to the upstart Americans at the 1980 Olympics.  Most know about the ‘Miracle on Ice’ but many of us didn’t follow the Soviet team and their grueling quest to be world class.
