The world’s leading endurance athletes are not only some of the fittest people on the planet, they are also among the toughest mentally. To train and race at the highest level of competition over hundreds – and sometimes thousands of miles takes preparation, dedication and the ability to push the body and mind beyond conventional limits.

Ultra Performance: The Psychology of Endurance Sports (published by Bloomsbury – out today), examines the attitudes and experiences of some of the world’s best endurance athletes, and how their approach to sport can be adapted to suit age groupers of all levels and abilities.

Throughout the book, athletes like Craig Alexander (3x Ironman World Champion), Mirinda Carfrae (2x Ironman World Champion), Nicola Spirig (Olympic Champion), Stephen Roche (Tour de France winner) and Dean Karnazes (ultra-running legend) discuss their training and racing experiences, with the book explaining how these strategies have helped them to realise their exceptional goals. With working examples of the implementation of these mental strategies, Ultra Performance not only gives an insight into the toughest moments these professional athletes have ever faced, but also offers advice to readers on how they can adapt and employ these techniques for themselves.

Although specific to the athlete and their events, these strategies provide valuable learning tools for individuals whatever their chosen sport. What’s more, the mental approaches outlined in Ultra Performance can often be applied to the non-sporting pursuits of everyday life, helping the reader to lead a better, more successful life.
