Welcome back to another episode of We Run This.
My guest this week is author and runner, Alex Hutchinson.
As the longtime “Sweat Science” columnist for Outside and Runner’s World, Alex draws on his background as a former national-team long-distance runner and Cambridge-trained physicist, as well as his own unique access to world-class athletes and scientists.
After debuting in hardcover in 2018, Hutchinson’s book, Endure: Mind, Body, and the Curiously Elastic Limits of Human Performance, is considered the definitive book on endurance and the mind for people looking to push their performance limits.
Endure is celebrating its paperback release along with updated information, the latest research on endurance, and a new afterword.
In our talk, Alex and I cover the discuss endurance and the tricks the brain plays on athletes of all skill levels, breaking old habits, the positive and negative mental benefits of social media in connection with pushing limits, and the limiting beliefs that keep people from achieving higher goals and believing what’s possible and impossible.
