Relying on Myself – Taking the Mental Side of Training to the Extreme

November 17, 2018

Ultra Adventurer and leadership coach, Brian Chontosh, aka Tosh, rejoins The Nation to dive into the mental side of endurance sports.  He recently competed in a unique challenge: 24 hours in an enclosed shipping container trying to run as many miles on a Trueform treadmill.  No light, no watch, no data, virtually sensory deprived.  Listen to his experience in preparation and execution.  There are many things that we all can take away and use in attempting new challenges.

Ideas that came from the podcast:

  • “The less stuff I have, the more I rely on myself”
  • Advice vs. opinion – different levels of importance
  • Practice vs. training
  • “pushing the mind’s mind away”
  • Slice the problem – Big problems  have Big solutions.  Break these Big problems into smaller problems and find the small solutions for them.
