The world’s leading endurance athletes are not only some of the fittest people on the planet, but are among the toughest mentally. To train and race at the highest level of competition takes preparation, dedication and the ability to push the body and mind beyond conventional limits. Ultra Performance: The Psychology of Endurance Sports by Paul Moore offers an insight into the psychology of these athletes. Featuring interviews with Ironman World Champions Craig Alexander and Mirinda Carfrae, Olympic champion Nicola Spirig and coach Brett Sutton, the book covers all aspects of triathlon psychology. There are also plenty of interviews with athletes from other endurance sports, including Tour de France winners and ultra marathon runners.

The result is a complete guide to training your mind to help you perform at your best on race day. Each athlete discusses a particular aspect of race psychology and how he or she applied it in a race-specific environment. Coupled with clear advice on how to train your mind and body to adopt these techniques, it is a complete training manual for anyone who wants to improve their mental strength and endurance sports performance.
