Episode 40: Gerry Rodrigues of Tower 26 - Part 2


In part one of the Purple Patch Podcast with Gerry Rodrigues, Matt and Gerry reminisced about each other's careers and how coaching and training methodologies have evolved, especially for the multisport athlete.

In part two, they dissect the recent IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship race and discuss the natural evolution and progression of these world championship athletes. It should come as no surprise that there are common elements of their success that are applicable to athletes and performers at all levels. 

Finally, Matt and Gerry look ahead to the future of the sport:

  • What is the process of longevity and long-term success?

  • What are the characteristics of great athletes?

  • How is sport such a conduit for life?

  • What is one of Gerry's favorite coaching phrases?

  • Most Importantly, What would Gerry bring on Dixon's Desert Island? 

We hope you enjoyed this Coaches Conversation with two of the greats in the sport of triathlon.
