Summary:
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' offers an insight into the psychology of these athletes. It includes contributions from Brett Sutton, world renowned triathlon coach, Craig Alexander, one of the greatest athletes in the history of Ironman, and Dee Cafari, the first woman to circumnavigate the world solo in both directions.
