Endure Mind Body PDF-Featuring a foreword by Malcolm Gladwell

Writing from both the cutting edge of scientific discovery and the front-lines of elite athletic performance, National Magazine Award-winning science journalist Alex Hutchinson presents a revolutionary account of the dynamic and controversial new science of endurance.

The capacity to endure is perhaps the key trait that separates champions and determines great performance in any field – from a 100-meter sprint to a 100-mile ultramarathon, from summiting Everest to acing finals. But what if everything we’ve been taught about endurance was wrong? What if we all have more potential than we think to go farther, push harder, and achieve more?

Blending cutting-edge science and gripping storytelling in the vein of Malcolm Gladwell – who forewords the book – Hutchinson reveals that a wave of paradigm-altering research over the past decade suggests that the seemingly physical barriers you encounter are mediated as much by your brain as by your body. But it’s not “all in your head.” For each of the physical limits that Hutchinson explores – pain, muscle, oxygen, heat, thirst, fuel – he carefully disentangles the delicate interplay of mind and muscle by telling the riveting stories of men and women who’ve approached (and sometimes surpassed) their own ultimate limits.

As the longtime “Sweat Science” columnist for Outside and Runner’s World as well as a frequent contributor to The New Yorker and New York Times, Hutchinson draws on his background as a former national-team long-distance runner and Cambridge-trained physicist. But the lessons he draws from traveling to labs around the world and trying out new endurance-boosting techniques like electric brain stimulation and brain endurance training are surprisingly universal. Endurance, he writes, is “the struggle to continue against a mounting desire to stop” – and we’re always capable of pushing a little farther.

Jim “It was OK. Endless summaries of academic studies punctuated by some interesting stories. I only got two pieces of information that will help with my running: 1) drink when you are thirsty and 2) positive self talk.”
Duane Schneider “I’ve come to know Alex Hutchinson’s writing through his fantastic articles in “Runner’s World.” He had some serious chops as a Canadian runner but he’s equally (if not more) accomplished as a journalist. Hutchinson’s interests tend toward the science-y, geeky side of running, and those interests are on full display in “Endure.” It’s likely I came into the book with a bias, being a distance runner and having heard “Endure” mentioned on various ultra-running podcasts. I assumed the focus would be on long-distance running, but Hutchinson touches on endurance sports of various types, including mountain climbing, cycling, free diving, marathoning, ultra-running, exploration, etc. A real strength of the book is that the author is able to tie these sports together, along with a wealth of scientific findings and summaries of clinical studies, so seamlessly. He moves effortlessly between Nike’s 2-hour marathon project, Roger Bannister’s 4-minute mile, record free diving attempts, Everest ascents, Antarctic treks, and “The Hour” (an all-out one-hour bike sprint that leaves its participants flailing in a pool of their own saddle sores, sweat, and tears). Hutchinson paints such a vivid picture of these efforts that you almost start to struggle for air along with the free diver or mountain climber. A lot of the book is arranged around these limits to human endurance, such as oxygen, heat, and fuel. The book springs to life when Hutchinson is describing mountain ascents or cycling races, but then just as quickly we’re back in the lab for…another study. There were many studies summarized in this book, studies where athletes were poked, prodded, given pills and placebos, denied oxygen, given pure oxygen, denied carbs, given extra carbs, EKGs, and on and on. I tried to keep everything straight, but after awhile it was difficult to determine what I was supposed to take from all this, other than that people often push themselves to the brink of exhaustion but rarely does anyone die due to a “central governor” in the brain that starts shutting things down if we stray too far into dangerous territory. By the time Hutchinson got to the study about the cyclists shown a video of an Asian woman who forces herself to vomit and then eats it, I was ready to be done with studies. I think Hutchinson accomplished what he set out to do, which was to provide a survey of various extreme endurance achievements and explain the science behind them, and despite my own bias toward running I thought the stories about mountaineering, antarctic exploration, and cycling were fascinating. I just wish the author would’ve focused more on the details of these events, maybe focusing on four or five, describing them in-depth, and scaling back all the studies, which for me just blended together anyway. I also have a feeling these studies are going to make “Endure” seem really dated in about five or ten years. I ultimately came away thinking the book was interesting but not always a page-turner, and there’s also not a huge amount you can easily take from it and apply to your own training/racing if that’s your goal for “Endure.””
Roberto Rigolin F Lopes “The interesting thing is that most people DON’T die of exhaustion, Tim Noakes noted in the 1997. Thus starting with the hypothesis that your mind is protecting you from breaking your body. Very good, It is all in your mind. But protection comes with a cost. Your mind is also stopping you from doing the best you can. And that’s the main subject of this book. Alex is compiling the current science developments on human performance (2018 stuff) which includes a great deal of brain training. To make things more dramatic, he sets the book within Nike’s Breaking2 project. He starts making you hear Kipchoge’s strides while running the fastest marathon ever. By consequence you may end up in a full sweat while reading this book.”
Ted _S “The breadth of coverage is incredible: time spans from seconds to months; distances from zero or hundreds of yards to entire continents, and ranges of volitional control from nearly total (breath holding) to largely passive (surviving extreme altitude without supplemental oxygen).
Part of what holds this extreme diversity together is the notion, introduced by Tim Noakes, of a “Central Governor,” a self-defense mechanism that keeps us from harming ourselves. Some of the success of top athletes might be linked to an ability to ignore the urging to slow down and instead to keep going at full speed.
The very long duration examples of endurance, such as pulling a sled across Antarctica, or an alpine-style month-long mountain ascent, are interesting as extremes but are obviously very different from a hundred meter dash, a marathon, or even a multi-day run. It’s not so obvious that there’s a “Central Governor” at work when the limits of survival are exceeded. Also one wonders what happened to the central governor while reading news stories of high school football players collapsing and sometimes dying during or soon after practice from heat stroke or overuse of muscles (rhabdomyolysis and compartment syndrome).
The text is filled both with details of lab experiments and with stories of individuals pushing the known limits. Special attention is given to the two hour marathon along with other “barriers” which have been crossed, such as the four minute mile.
The book as a whole is a handy compilation, made up in part from the author’s web posts at OutsideOnline. It’s great to have so much information in one handy package.”
