EP 62: Endure with Alex Hutchinson

In this episode Crystal, Andy, and Chandler are joined by journalist and author Alex Hutchinson.  Alex wrote for Runner’s World from 2012 - 2017 and is currently a contributing editor and writer of the Sweat Science column for Outside.  This month he released his third book, “ENDURE: Mind, Body, and the Curiously Elastic Limits of Human Performance”

We discuss the limits of endurance.  We learn how a lot of what we perceive are physical limits may actually be triggered in the brain.  We cover topics such as:

  • Hitting the wall
  • Tricking your brain when you are low on fuel
  • Fatigue
  • Pain vs. Effort
  • Why you really should smile
  • The next big trend in psychobiology
